On October 19, 2012, Quest for Glory creators Lori and Corey Cole will launch a Kickstarter project for a new adventure-RPG set in Gloriana, i.e., the world of Quest for Glory.

That is what being announced on Lori and Corey Cole's website, School for Heroes, and flashing on their other website, Hero University.

I thought I heard specifically that it wouldn't have anything to do with QFG or particularly its gameplay style...

The new game will set in the same world, in Gloriana.

Michael Cole, Director of Marketing for Transolar Entertainment, posted a message about the new game on GOG.com:

http://www.gog.com/en/forum/general/que ... ing/post50

"In terms of game play, it'll have two major parts: The school part which revolves around character interaction and puzzle solving. The catacombs part which is a rogue-like with tactical movement and skills built around exploiting enemies weaknesses."

I would, but it's quite expensive to send our newsletters out (they cost about $90 each). We sent a Hero-U newsletter earlier in the month that had a 43% open rate, and funds are pretty tight now. But if anyone wants to donate us the amount to send another newsletter out, I'd be happy to.

How quickly could you get out the newsletter? the campaign is close to the deadline now!
Perhaps you could include some more info on upcoming games in addition to get more people to open it?

I could easily send it out within less than a day. It could use the same template as the previous one, and just drop in a few of the newer graphics, screenshots, and text.

I've sent another newsletter out to the (smaller) Himalaya Studios newsletter today with a mention and link to the Hero-U Kickstarter campaign. Let's hope it brings in a few new backers.

Thank you all for helping out. I don't think we could have done it without everyone's help.
It was looking a bit bleak a week and a half ago.

This is the spirit of the hero at work!!
