Kickstarter from Quest for Glory Creators Just Reaches Goal

Kickstarter from Quest for Glory Creators Just Reaches GoalNot quite reaching the heady heights of the Kickstarter campaigns for the Leisure Suit Larry remake, or the fifth instalment of the Broken Sword series, a new game from the creators of RPG-Adventure Quest for Glory has been successfully crowd-funded.

Lori and Corey Cole – the famous designers who cut their teeth at Sierra in the eighties and nineties – took to Kickstarter themselves as an attempt to bring the RPG-Adventure genre back to life. Their popular Quest for Glory series has been the only really strong proponent of the genre, so they felt it was time to make a return and to re-popularise the gameplay style they made famous.

The Kickstarter campaign only had a traget of $400,000 and it barely made the cut – only reaching their goal within hours of the campaign closing. In contrast, the Broken Sword 5 Kickstarter reached its goal with half of its time still remaining, and more than doubled their target. But that is not to say that the game won’t be a success – that remains to be seen.

See a trailer for the new title below:

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption will be released in October 2013 for Windows PC and Mac.
