Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption sneaks into stores today

As a kid who grew up playing Sierra adventure games, today's release of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption from Quest for Glory creators Lori & Corey Cole fills me with complex feelings, including (but not limited to) nostalgia, curiosity and soul-chilling dread. While the Quest for Glory series was always one of Sierra's more accessible series of adventures, blending point and click adventuring with RPG stats and a steady…

Feature: What to look forward to next year

The RPGs of 2017

So... 2016. (FX: 'Urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh....') It's not been the greatest of years, from just about every celebrity you might have loved deciding to peg it, to America electing the Curious Orange.

If there's any developer duo that should know a thing about heroes, it's Lori and Corey Cole, creators…

Hero-U Graduates From The Kickstarter Academy

Retro-revival Kickstarters are no longer the sure-fire success they seemed to be a few months ago, it seems. Elite: Dangerous trails a long way behind Star Citizen's incredible haul, Old-School RPG was cancelled, massively promising Bullfroggy god game Maia sadly may not reach its (frankly too high) target and Quest For Glory creators Corey and Lori Cole went right down to the wire for their…

Interv-U: Lori and Corey Cole On Going Rogue

Rhyming Quest For Glory designers Lori and Corey Cole are back, bringing one of the Kickstarters that have been demanded ever since the world remembered that adventure gamers have a wonderful mix of nostalgia and money. Their new project is Hero-U: Rogue To Redemption, and while it's definitely not QFG6, it does share the same family tree. We sent Richard on a quest to interview…
