PC Gamer looked at how Hero-U avoided disaster and resurrected 90s adventure.
To Catch a Thief
Playing Hero-U as a Quest for Glory fan hits all the right nostalgic buttons. The 2D artwork is frequently gorgeous, including the many backer-inspired paintings that adorn the hallways. The dialogue is punchy and entertaining like a good novel, and every student and faculty member at the university has their own unique personality and goals.
For Quest for Glory fans, itís like if you had a bigger, more interactive hub town, but you never actually left it, which is admittedly jarring at first. All the adventuring is done within the magical university, and if youíre making Harry Potter comparisons in your head, youíre not the only one.
