Posted under video, review, PC, Hero U

Sierra Entertainment made a lot of great adventure games in the 80s and 90s. They were particularly fond of Quests - Space Quest, King's Quest, Police Quest, Eco Quest. My favourite of these was the Quest for Glory series (the change of name format was due to an unfortunate failure to copyright the name Hero's Quest).

Six years ago creators Cori and Lori Ann Cole launched a Kickstarter to make a follow-up to the series. But it couldn't be a direct sequel - Sierra (and it's IPs) were sold a number of times over in the past 20 years before eventually ending up with Activision Blizzard. So the Cole's made Hero-U, a game with similar themes, where you play a rogue trying to make it through a semester at a mysterious university. Check out the video to see how it turned out.

Great review, Pam! Very detailed, and I like how you compared this to the original QFG games, since it's from the original creative directors. Looks like a fun game, and since I have a soft spot for early PC adventure stuff, I might dig it. Also, what is the thing on the desk that does the rolling colors of light? Is that a gaming keyboard or something? It's pretty cool looking Smiley
@MetalFRO: Tanks MetalFro! That's Will's computer behind me and his keyboard, mousepad and headphone stand all have rolling coloured lights.
