That's really cool. But now I must play the first one again before moving on with my character!
Okay but do they have the first one too? I wasn't able to find it.
The VGA of the first one is abandonware, it's not by these guys.
edit: Though it might be in one of those Quest For Glory collections of all the games.
There was an official VGA remake of the first one which is the one I remember playing. II is the only one I haven't played through. I remember liking the QfG games better than King's Quest and Space Quest.
Gonna party like its 1989.
Make Goldrush VGA, THEN I'll be interested.
Suck blue frog.
Thanks to all the folks who made the remake of Quest for Glory II available to the rest of us.
QFG2 is the only one I never finished. QFG4 is easily one of my Top 10 adventures though. Beautiful piece of design, if you could get past all the bugs.
I downloaded Quest for Glory 4 a year or so ago and couldn't get to play properly i think because my machine is too fast and so almost everything in the game would just happen in the blink of an eye. What i should do?
I really liked 3 and the remake of the 1st 1 back in the day
edit: ok i see this QFG2 has been made with the modern machine in mind(damn, 350mb of free disk space?). But still, what if I wanna play the others?
edit again: this QFG2 remake is for free?

Dosbox with reduced cycles?
Or play it off gametap.
Loved this series growing up, at least the first two games. I wasn't terribly fond of the rest and I never finished the last one. I remember hitting a bug on the final battle of QFG2, and Sierra had to send me a patch on floppy disk, and for my troubles they sent me a copy of the Sierra game of my choice (I think I chose a Police Quest) and a copy of the Sierra Network. They had the best customer service -- just phenomenal.
Definitely going to give this remake a spin, if only for the nostalgia rush.
I'll play it again. I was always proud to have used the same guy to play all of the games with (Garbon the magic user). I'd lug him around from machine to machine on a floppy. I probably still have a copy of his save file on a disk somewhere.
QfGII was probably my favorite out of the mix. One was great, and had wonderful humor all throughout it. III was good, but wasn't as satisfying, and IV was just a mess of bugs at first, but had some good things in it.
My all time favorite adventure game series, though I never played 5.
1 and 4 will always be my favorite as they're the least linear and most CRPG-like. I bought 1 when it was still Hero's Quest. 2 was a bit of a disappointment after 1, but once you start getting into the story it's a great game, but there are a lot of places where you can easily fuck up and screw yourself over. Also, it's a little harder to multiclass than it was in 1. Despite having my favorite story and my favorite setting, 3's the worst. 4 had gamekiller bugs and 2 had the chance of sleeping your life away, but 3 was the only one where if you didn't do something you didn't even know you were supposed to do at the very beginning of the game, you could not possibly beat the game several hours later.
Still a great series. I wish that 5 had been better and I'd been more prone to want to play it.
Ah, I loved these games, although I enjoyed 3 and 4 less than the first two. One part RPG, one part adventure game, one part real-time battles... seemed to have it all.
Sweet. I did try their King's Quest VGA remake, but quickly quit - most of Sierra's early Quest games are so primitive in both design and content that they don't really do anything for me. The Quest For Glory games are easily the best thing to come out of Sierra's Quest line, so that's a lot more compelling of a prospect.
1 and 3 were the only ones I finished, personally. I never played 2, and as others have said 4 would just crash for me or do stupid things, although I thought 4 had the greatest atmosphere and music. It was a very dark and mature theme and I loved it.
I didn't think 3 deserved all the flak it got. I rather liked exploring the desert map as opposed to, say, running round the woods like an idiot in 1.
1 will always have that "holy crap I just beat this guy at throwing daggers and got into the thieves guild" moment.
It's downloading at 4K per second on my DSL connection. Ungood.
I went 1 to 4 with the same character, but never finished 4. I don't remember why. The vampire chick was HAWT in human form. Never played 5.
I think QfG 2 was by far my favorite in the series, and the series was one of my favorites, though I played them wildly out of order.
I think I played it 3, 1, 2, (3 again with a character from 1 and 2), and 4. I never played 5 though. I wonder if the remake stands up to my rosy colored glasses though.
The only Quest for Glory game that I have strong memories of is Quest for Glory IV. I absolutely loved the off kilter Lovecraftian vibe and remember actually feeling afraid while playing it as a kid. I have no idea if it would hold up today or not, but I know the memories and feelings it invokes when I think of it are pretty strong.
I loved Hero's Quest. I went on to play and finish 1,2,3. I was stopped by the killer bugs in 4. I am downloading now!
Out of curiosity, how many people here still associate "Hero's Quest" with the series more than "Quest for Glory?"
Me. And I was confused at first because I was expecting to type in commands but then remembered that they added an easier interface with the VGA version (which I only played once, years after playing the original).Out of curiosity, how many people here still associate "Hero's Quest" with the series more than "Quest for Glory?"
Very, very cool. Just started a new character.
Razzle dazzle root beer. :(
I should really figure out where I can get a copy of Quest for Glory 3, I loved that North African theme with the lion-people and stuff.
Quest for Glory 1,2 and 3 are on Gametap.
Does it have the maze/city thing at the begining going on still? I remembered hating it when it came out and when i tried playing it again last year it was worse than I thought it was. Hooray for making me make a map on graphing paper sierra that's really fun! Once you get the warping map, it's a really fun game. Also, "You probally can't even pronounce Pinochle" (or something to that effect) is a great line.
