Dave's Quest was a JavaScript game I 'made' in 2003 about my friend Dave's quest to save the princess and collect donuts along the way. It existed on my first Geocities website for years. I had copied the code from an existing game called Super Marionette 2. By changing the artwork and level layout, I was able to make it my own. (Dave even helped with some of the character designs.) It was originally coded for the Netscape 4.0 and Internet Explorer 4.0 browsers. Around the late 2000s, it no longer worked due to updates to web browsers, and then after the demise of Geocities, I thought the game was lost forever.

In 2013 Dave passed away from adrenocortical carcinoma. Years later I discovered the original html codes and artwork saved on old backup CD-Roms. I wanted to recreate the game as faithfully as possible and discovered a program called Stencyl that let me do just that. Here I present the most faithful recreation of that original game, including the glitches. It's challenging, but if you're able to beat it, let me know and I'll get you a cup of Frosty Paws. Thanks Dave O.
