Loading Quest

Loading Quest is the ultimate loading widget for web applications that have long processing requests. It displays a role playing video game 100% without controls.

Your character is automatically created. He pursues quests, kills monsters and levels up by himself. Thanks to this, Loading Quest is the only video game that can really be used by anyone: a 2-months baby, a dog or even your boss. Of course you character is also automatically saved. So the next time you will have to wait you will be happy to get back your character and seek for new adventures!

Test it here.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="loadingquest.css" />

<script src="jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="jquery-ui.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="loadingquest.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
