The owner of Quest Machine has taken a job back with the videogame industry. Since this will involve working 80 hours a week or more, he's shutting down Quest Machine and all rights will revert back to their authors.

Good thing I got my copy of the S.U.P.E.R. expansion pack while I could!

The Gamefest article says that rights to unpublished designs have reverted to their authors. The author of Adventure League being Reiner Knizia, I expect we'll be seeing this one from some other company. Perhaps re-themed, with all the characters cuddly bears. Only joking.

Re: Stillborn ?
Has there been any word on this winding up somewhere else?

Apparently Valley Game's newly announced Municipium is a reworking of Adventure League. It's a shame to lose the original theme but we'll have to see what they do with it.

Actually the "new" theme is the original, or at least a lot closer to it than the theme Quest Machine invented for this game.

It has been released, under an other name by an other company: Municipium

Thanks! I re-read the posts above and realized I'd missed that it was re-themed. Pity, as I have no interest in another Roman game, but the Adventure League sounded really exciting!

I suspect it will be years before a similar idea is ever explored.

Sam Clifford here. It was good to see Mike Doyle (the artist who was doing my graphics) and genius designer Kniza, who I licensed the mechanics from, actually create the game and have it see the light of day. It is a great design and Mike is an amazing artist.

As far as Adventure League goes, it may come back in a different form as I am forever in development. That said my day job remains my focus and this and other endeavors have taken a back seat.
