Last Chance to Back the Spiritual Successor to Quest for Glory
For immediate release Wednesday, June 10, 2015
Award winning game designers Lori and Corey Cole – creators of Quest for Glory, Shannara, and Castle of Dr. Brain – are creating a new game in the spirit of Quest for Glory with the help of Kickstarter backers. The campaign ends on Monday, June 15, and has already passed $90,000 of its $100,000 minimum goal. You can watch a short video about the project at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyOmv6n8goQ.
Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a hybrid role-playing adventure game, a category pioneered by Quest for Glory. Players take on the role of Shawn O’Conner as he learns to become a hero as well as a rogue. The game features full 3D environments along with beautiful 2D painted scenes that illustrate key moments in the game.
Shawn begins his studies in the Hero University, set in an ancient castle with a dark history. He can make friends with other students and improve his rogue, magic, science, and first aid skills.
Beneath the castle, Shawn can explore, fight monsters in tactical turn-based combat, and collect valuable items. He can strive to become Rogue of the Year while uncovering clues to his father’s mysterious disappearance and to the dark secrets of the ancient castle.
Depending on each player’s gaming style, Hero-U can play out as an adventure game, a role-playing game, a mystery game, a romance, or an interactive novel. There is more information on the story at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/transolargames/hero-u-adventure-role-playing-game/posts/1259139.
