Review: Hero-U: Rogue To Redemption – A Fine Successor To The “Quest For Glory” Series

So U Want to Be a Hero.

Twenty-three years have passed since the release of the fifth and final entry in Corey and Lori Ann Cole’s Quest for Glory hybrid adventure/RPG series and now, after two Kickstarter campaigns, the duo has returned with Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. This is a spiritual successor to their classic franchise that manages to harken back to its roots, tying nicely into the world and storyline of the ’80s and ’90s titles, whilst successfully delivering a fresh and engaging point and click adventure that’s just as much fun for newcomers as it will be for long-terms fans of the series.

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption sees players assume the role of Sardonian scamp Shawn O’Conner as he’s rumbled during a robbery and consequently offered the opportunity by a mysterious benefactor to enrol in the titular Hero University rather than face a stretch of jail time. Upon arrival at Hero-U, Shawn finds himself part of a secret class for rogues, the Disbarred Bards, and before long he’s skulking around corridors at night, eavesdropping, picking locks, solving mysteries and engaging in turn-based combat in the four dungeons hidden beneath the ancient Calignian castle that houses the university’s rather Harry Potter-esque campus.
