Quest For Glory I-V Released on Good Old Games

10 May 2012

In what has to be one of the best bang-for-your-buck custom bundle packs ever made available on Good Old Games, the service is now selling the entire Hero's Quest/Quest For Glory series for only $9.99. Both the CGA/EGA and VGA versions of Hero's Quest: So You Want to Be a Hero are included, too, in case you're like me and want to experience the first game just as it was originally crafted all over again:
Are you feeling adventurous, Hero? The world of Gloriana, with all its wonderful diversity, awaits you. In this pack of five classic Sierra adventure games you will create your character (a warrior, thief, or magic user) and set out on a grand journey for fortune and fame! You will solve quests and puzzles, fight monsters, and save innocents.

In the Quest for Glory pack, which contains all five parts of the classic action RPG games by Sierra, you create your own character, choose his class and abilities and then set out on your grand voyage. Quest for Glory games are universally acclaimed as one of the best adventure games ever developed. After completing a part, you can import your character into the next one, keeping your skills and some special rewards you've hoarded, like magic items.

The story is another of the Quest for Glory series' strong points. It's very solid and immersive, with a light-hearted and humorous narrative that will keep you glued to the screen throughout each of the five installments.
Instant purchase for me.
