Quest Sprout: Wholesome Or A Sign of Hope?

Some have called Quest Sprout “the most wholesome thing on the internet.”

But what exactly is it? And why has it become such a big thing?

Little boys dream of adventures and being heroes. Sadly, all too often, when they grow up, these dreams fade and disappear. That is why the hero theme – in film, in literature, in cartoons –  is recurrent and one that never ages. 

Quest Sprout is reminiscent of a character in a role-playing game (RPG) like Dungeons and Dragons or World of Warcraft. Characters in RPGs are allocated tasks or search for quests. Completing these quests and amassing assets, and “weapons” allow the character to level up and evolve.

Quest Sprout is a recent creation of New Zealand-based video games developer and comic artist Matthew Wills. It was not intended for Quest Sprout to become the main character in his comic, Swords

But, somehow, unexpectedly and by popular demand, Quest Sprout is now taking centre stage. And he has a fast-growing fan club.

This endearing and innocent green hero wanders around looking for great quests after being separated from his mum (yes, we know, but read on!). He holds on to a simple wooden sword and loves adventure. He is undaunted even when unsuccessful in his endeavours and continues his mission with a characteristic cry of “Qwest!”

In fact, he doesn’t say much except “Qwest!”

When the going gets tough, Quest Sprout finds safe haven at the Adventurer’s Tavern where he is showered with encouragement and empathy.

Why has Quest Sprout found such a passionate audience – 80,000 upvotes on Reddit at the time of writing? Yes, he is cute and lovable. He makes you want to squeeze him, cuddle him, and protect him.

He is always hopeful and never gives up.

Doesn’t that sound like something we all need now, in these disturbing times, more than ever?

Matthew feels the same way. He suspects that the success of Quest Sprout can be attributed to the global coronavirus pandemic. People who are suffering and struggling are looking for things that make them feel good.

“I think the fact everyone’s having a hard time definitely helped with people attaching themselves to this character,” Matthew said on BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat.

“It’s definitely a case that it’s helping people I think – if that doesn’t sound too vain.”

In times of uncertainty and crisis, our priorities tend to change. Our vulnerabilities are exposed. In such circumstances, those of us who were once ambitious or high achievers, now the need for structure, routine, comfort or a sense of belonging may surpass our desire for recognition and power. We may discover what is truly dear to us. Big changes in our lives and readjusting can feel unnerving and stressful.

And hence we’ve found comfort in happy-go-lucky Quest Sprout who is infallible in his enthusiasm and hopeful in his innocence. We want to identify with him because his spunky spirit gets him through adversity. 

Yes, he does get scared – don’t we all? – but it is not shameful. His fellow adventurers at the Adventurer’s Tavern represent his secure base. They give him the protection, comfort and energy that we would all love to have for ourselves.

What is there not to like? 

People can’t get enough of the little adventurer. They want him in their lives. Matthew has already sold 500 Quest Sprout pins, with more in the pipeline. There are Quest Sprout memes, and demands from fans for T-shirts and plush toys.

Like Quest Sprout, we can embrace uncertainty and adventure with courage and heart. 

We should not fear failure but keep moving forward. We look forward to sharing more adventures with Quest Sprout.

Yes! More Qwests Please!
