FAQ
1) Have all levels been remade?
Yes, all levels have been edited and remade, some from the ground up.
2) What is the new Joe's Quest level about? The new level replaces the original interlude cutscene and will help flesh out Joe and his pals journey to find the elusive Silverspoon Seaport.
3) How much dialogue has been rewritten? I tried not to change as much of the original dialogue as possible. My overall goal is to keep the spirit of the original as much as possible!
4) Where is Joe's Quest 2? A sequel will be made based on the reception of these remakes. I hope people like it!
5) Why was there such a long delay for a sequel? I stopped working on the series after Joe's Quest 1.5 as I felt burnt out at the time and didn't really know where the story was going. That and my ambitions for the sequel outweighed my skillset and what assets were available at the time. Hopefully if and when I do start working on a sequel, it'll feel close in spirit to what I had originally intended all those years ago.
6) I hate how the 'Remake' versions looks and plays! Can I just play the original? Why of course! The download is at the bottom. Enjoy!

It was a great campaign. I'll start out from chapter one: The story was great, and fun. But you need to store characters in game caches, I went to a later chapter and couldn't find out what happened to the items that were in Joe's inventory. Weather or not the campaign was meant to be humorous, the dialog in chapter 4 really killed the mood. You should add more offensive spells, like a "Super arrow" for Timmy or something. You should also set Timmy's main attribute to Agility, since he is fast. You did an outstanding job after chapter four though, and it was fantastic. I hope to guide Wally Joe and Timmy through more crazy adventures in the future. 10/10

This map is fairly old but is still one of the best maps out there. The story is intriguing yet hilarious and is obviously heavily influenced by games like Monkey Island and Grim Fandango. Unfortunately the creator seems to have vanished into thin air, so even though he WAS working on a Joe's Quest 2, I doubt we'll ever see it. T_T

10/10 anyway though!

What are you talking about? ;)
He never vanished..
You can look here for his latest projects: http://forum.samods.org/index.php?topic=9160.0
but I think they will never be finished.
If you search in google "MedMapGuy" you will find a lot of him... and it seems that he have other things to do.
Searching a job etc. and making fanfilms xD
He is a nice painter, too!

I loved it. Amazing fun, very funny, and there are parts where you need your brain (eg.: minefield in ch.4).
However, I don't know if this is a singular incident, but when I took the left path and met the humans with the orc X, the cinematic stopped. I mean he killed the gate and three footmen, walked off, and all the characters stood there doing nothing in cinematic mode. I couldn't even exit cinematic mode with esc. Any idea why?

A good campaign, but I don't agree with a Director's Cut. The dialogue is funny, but I don't think the terrain, gameplay, and cinematics are that good (the terrain being pretty bad at times). I also found lots of bugs, like cinematic dialogue repeating after the cinematic is over, dummy heroes owned by the player (like two Timmies in the first chapter), invulnerable heroes (defense chapter), etc.

I think Mordork's Quest and Joe's Quest 1.5, made by the same guy, are better campaigns (and some campaigns made by others come to my mind as well; like Shards of Resistance Raiders, Dwarf Campaign, The Last Guardian, The War of Corruption, The Coming of the Horde, Thievery, and To the Bitter End).

Though I agree that the campaign has its flaws, it is a classic. But I don't remember experiencing any of the bugs. Maybe an update of Warcraft III has something to do with this. I do remember a campaign that suffered from the same thing only because of the updates.
