Hero's Quest I: So You Want to be a Hero?
(Sierra On-Line, 1990)
This game thrust Sierra graphic adventures into a (sort of)
RPG world, with a character whose health, hunger, sleep, and
skills needed to be taken care of, as well as adventure-game
puzzles. Add to this intriguing concept a fantastic music score;
one of the best by Sierra games' music veteran, Mark Seibert.
The finale is also fantastic, complete with a sneak peek of the
sequel, Trial By Fire.
The only "flaw" with this game was title; allegedly,
it was already trademarked by a board game company, and Sierra
had to change the game series title to Quest
For Glory. A rep at Sierra once claimed that this
led to over a third of the original buyers of this game never
seeing it's incredible sequel, Quest
for Glory 2. Personally, I think the board game company
should've cut Sierra some slack. Whatever; no matter what title
given, this was a revolutionary RPG/adventure hybrid.
