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.
