Hero-U is a Kickstarter for a new RPG-Adventure Hybrid

28 Oct, 2012, 08:45 | Posted by: Jennifer

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a new kickstarter project by Corey and Lori Ann Cole, based on the School for Heroes, their previous email based webgame. You may recognize The Coles as the creators of Sierra's Quest for Glory series, the children's adventure game Mixed-Up Mother Goose, and Castle of Dr. Brain (which was the ancestor of puzzle games such as Brain Age, Professor Layton, and Puzzle Agent).

Hero U is being co-developed by Transolar Entertainment (The Cole's current development studio, as FAR Studio is now used for art and web development) and the Australian video game developer Brawsome, the developer of the adventure game Jolly Rover and the puzzle adventure game MacGuffin's Curse. Brawsome is run by Andrew Goulding, who was the Assistant Producer at Krome Studios Melbourne on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

The goal of the Kickstarter project is $400,000 USD. Currently, the total stands at just over $137,000 USD with 28 days left to go.

What does everyone else think about this?

    I dunno...I only saw one or two images there that looked like gameplay...and it reminded me more of a shitty shockwave flash game than an old school adventure.

    But that might just be the negative dick in me talking. I also probably consider the Quest for Glory games as my least favorite Sierra Adventures....But I funded Two Guys from Andromeda and Tex Murphy AND Jane Jensen....This one just looks "Meh..."
