The fan-made Quest for Glory 4 1/2 didn't exactly turn out for the best, but perhaps a game merely inspired by the classic adventure/RPG series will fare better. The gorgeous Heroine's Quest is such a thing, and after four years of development it has just been released for free. For free! You can download this massive roleplaying/adventure hybrid from this link - stick around for a fantastic trailer that will convince you to do just that.
Quest for Glory
Mordavia is a land in need of more than just another exterminator. It needs a Hero with a capital H – a man strong enough to not merely fight the darkness, but to bring light into dark places.
You’re not the strongest in the land, not by a long shot. Even with a bag of spells, you’re not the most powerful. You’re not even a legend. You’re simply a man for whom no problem is too small, committed to saving the world with a few acts of bravery and a hundred tiny moments of kindness.
Quest for Glory, an action-RPG hybrid series developed by Sierra in the '90s, lives in the memories of adventure fans for its witticisms, colorful scenery, and intricate challenges. Now, Corey and Lori Cole, Glory's creators, return to gamesmithing with Hero-U: Rogue Rally, a "turn-based, tactical combat and dungeon exploration with rich character interactions, challenging puzzles, and an immersive story."
