Quest for Glory

Quest for Glory I: So You Want to Be a Hero was the first game in the Quest for Glory series, a series which combined adventure and RPG gameplay.  The game was originally called Hero's Quest, but Sierra never trademarked the name, and was forced to rename it after Milton Bradley released the board game HeroQuest.

Quest for Glory I is now supported by ScummVM, a program designed to let 2D adventure games run on multiple platforms. With ScummVM, Quest for Glory I now runs on modern versions of windows, as well as Linux, Mac OS X, and many consoles such as Dreamcast, Wii, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable. For a complete list of platforms supported by ScummVM, see here.
