      Lori, and Corey Cole. I am super happy for this most awesome game to be released... I have loved you guys games since 1989. Damn that's makes me feel old folks. Chadly.

      Hi Corey and Lori,

      I pledged and thought I'd be in the alpha group but did not get an invite? Are you sending them out to Steam using our email addresses? I changed mine on steam. I would hate to miss it because of that. If you're inviting certain people I understand.

      @Corey Cole. It's nice to see this Kickstarter on it's way to completion. So many have failed. Keep up the good work. Can't wait for it's release.!:)

      So glad you didn´t get struck by lightning sitting on the potty or something!
      Can´t wait to play the game. I wish I´d singed up for Alpha-testing......

    6. Corey Cole 2-time creator on February 7

      Ben, I assume you were asking why the update didn't come out that week? Combination of health and business issues. It's up now. Target dates are about the same - shooting for full Alpha early next week, Beta late February to mid-March, and release mid- to late-April.

      What happened?

    8. Corey Cole 2-time creator on January 22

      As we get farther in testing, it's clear the game won't be out in February. My target launch date is April 15, but there is a possibility we'll be done earlier. Update coming this week.

      @Colin: The most recent video on Youtube (alpha footage, not the final trailer yet) says “coming soon” at the end of the video. In the comments it says “Currently in Alpha Testing as of November 2017, the expected release date is February or March 2018.”

      (BTW in the video there is some screen tearing in the hallway scene, but that is an artifact of capturing the video, it’s confirmed in the comments that it does not happen in the game).

      Hi just noticed the hero u trailer which says its coming soon this month. I am really looking forward to playing this game.

      MadJo: Yikes! I didn't see that you had requested a key. Check your email for the key and instructions.

      If anyone else has not received their Quest for Glory, Jolly Rover, or MacGuffin's Curse key, or if you can't find it, please send email to support (at) Hero-U (dot) net and I'll track it down.

    12. Corey Cole 2-time creator on October 18

      Ben: Your wish is granted - I just posted an update.

      No videos this time. I just need to figure out the tools and make one - problem with no marketing department. At Sierra, they did all that for us. :-)

    13. Lawson Culver on October 12

      @MadJo: I got mine months (if not a year) ago. Go here and enter your Kickstarter email address, and see if there are digital rewards waiting for you:

    14. MadJo on October 8

      I was looking through my backerkit stuff, and I remembered that your project was still ongoing. One of the rewards I purchased through Backerkit was a GoG-key for Quest for Glory. When will these be sent out? Before or after the game is released?

      Ben Jamin on September 21, 2017

      Is it ok to ask for another status update? How is Alpha/pre-Alpha testing coming along? I would really like to see some "moving pictures". Also I don´t see any advertisement on or steam so how does your current timetable look like?

    16. Corey Cole 2-time creator on August 16, 2017

      Lawson, yes, in the update. We've had a testable version for a month, but it's taken a while to build in the automated reporting system and fix some bugs that it told us about.

    17. Lawson Culver on August 10, 2017

      Any word on Alpha and Beta testing?

    20. Cory on March 28, 2017

      Awesome! Can't wait until this game is released... the QFG series was one of my favorites and I look forward to seeing what you've done with Hero-U.

    21. Corey Cole 2-time creator on March 28, 2017

      New update is posted 28 March 2017. Alpha and Beta testing are coming!

      Happy New Year... well almost, but hope you all are enjoying a great holiday and looking forward to playing Rogue to Redemption in 2017... must admit I am looking forward to it the most next year!

    25. Jeff (IdleHacker) on August 29, 2016

      Thought this might be of interest to people here...Quest for Glory 1-5 is now on Steam:

      Hey there friends I hope all is going well! Keep up the good work!

    27. Corey Cole 2-time creator on July 13, 2016

      Yah, sorry Dablue (and other backers). I started an update in late May with a Memorial Day theme, decided it was too controversial and generally not working, and went through four or five more drafts before posting the current one. In the meantime, we had Orlando, Baton Rouge, Dallas, etc., all events that tied in with my original post. I might go back to that at some point for the site, but it wasn't enough about the game for here. Anyway, new update posted. Any ideas for a theme for the next one?

    28. Dablue
      on July 4, 2016

      Time for an update? Was thinking about this project the other day , hence my question.

    29. Corey Cole 2-time creator on May 2, 2016

      Caleb - Did you get an email notification of the new update I just published? The previous one was two months ago due to a family emergency (don't worry - it turned out to be much less of a big deal than it at first appeared). I was a little too distracted to post one last month.

    30. Caleb Mickel on April 29, 2016

      Hey there! Just wanted to say I haven't been getting updates emailed to me. Hopefully we can get that fixed :) glad to see progress is going well. Thanks for all your hard work on the game. I'm confident its gonna be great and look forward to getting my hands on it

    31. BlackGauntlet
      on February 23, 2016

      Understood. It's never an easy thing to make a game especially one that is so open-ended.

    32. Corey Cole 2-time creator on February 19, 2016

      Lim Yeow Seng: Hero-U needs a lot more than polishing. It will be out this year for certain, but isn't close to beta yet. I plan to do a new update this weekend with details. We've added a writer, and are adding a programmer. In the meantime, we're redoing some of the background art that wasn't up to the standard of the newer scenes. It's a huge, complex process.

    33. BlackGauntlet
      on February 12, 2016

      Hey there, Mr. Cole! Are we still expecting the game to be ready next month or does it still need some polishing?

    34. Corey Cole 2-time creator on January 3, 2016

      No, you're fine, Maxwell. The difference is whether you want two copies of the game (one from each pledge) or if you want additional add-ons. I assume most people who supported both campaigns either decided to make a gift to the project, wanted to upgrade to a higher tier, or wanted to order additional rewards.

    35. Maxwell Horse on December 24, 2015

      Question for anybody: With all the past suggestions that we should "collapse" our two Hero-U backerkit surveys (for those that have two), it's something I've never done. Why? Because I was afraid I would mess something up and I figured I should leave well enough alone.

      As far as I know, both of my backerkit things in relation to Hero-U are filled in properly. Do I need to do anything else beyond that? Or am I messing things up by default simply because I still have the two separate backerkit surveys related to Hero-U?

      Ramon Carrasco on December 21, 2015

      Perfect, sounds like a plan. Just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed them yet. Thanks, you guys! (For everything!)

    37. Corey Cole 2-time creator on December 21, 2015

      Ramon, we sent out GoG codes to everyone who ordered games prior to this year's Kickstarter. We need to figure out which ones are new orders and send them out. I hope to get that done this week along with uploading posters and concept art. You'll get your code by email.

    38. Missing avatar

      Ramon Carrasco on December 17, 2015

      I may have missed it somewhere but did GOG codes go out to those who bought them already?

      Roger Helgeson on December 14, 2015

      Uhhh so I guess I missed a ton of emails. I just updated my survey now :( I added a whole bunch of addons - is it too late for that?

    40. Corey Cole 2-time creator on November 10, 2015

      That's roughly correct. The actual number was somewhere between $11-12K.

    41. Missing avatar

      Timmyg on October 8, 2015

      I saw the stretch goal meter was updated on the web page, does that mean that only 10k was raised from end of kickstarter to final backerkit date?

    42. Corey Cole 2-time creator on September 11, 2015

      @Psychonauts: You are basically correct, except that the add-on does not include the t-shirt, art book, bestiary, digital copy of the game, etc. Staying on the $80 pledge and adding $100 will get you the same things as the $200 pledge minus the t-shirt, and plus the second copy of the game in DVD case.

      In actuality, we may decide to upgrade the DVD cases to full boxed games (but without the keychains, lucky coin, music CD, etc.) - it will be a question of production cost since it's very expensive to make a "short run" of a small number of cases.

      All pledges are really contributions to development of the game - the prices do not reflect the market value of the physical goods - most of the cost goes to programming and art.

      KickstartPsychonauts on September 10, 2015

      The Premium Collector's Edition Boxed Copy of Hero-U Add-on doesn't make any sense. It only cost $100 to add it but the pledge level for collector's edition is $200. I am not sure if you are aware, I could change my pledge level to $0 and then add Collector's Edition add-on and only pay $100 for it. Even if I keep my $80 pledge and add the add-on It would still be cheaper than $200 pledge. Not only that I would get 2 copies of the game.

      As much I would love to trade-in my $80 pledge for more physical goods, I don't think it would be fair to everyone who pledged $200 or more and to you. Although can't say I wasn't tempted XD

      I would think the add-on would have to be limited to people who pledged $200 above for their 2nd collector's edition copy or that the add-on price should be $200

    44. Corey Cole 2-time creator on September 9, 2015

      @Erithan: Yes, Lori and I will autograph the postcards.

      @Kay: Sorry for the delay. T-shirt sizes are Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L), Extra-Large (XL), then 2XL and 3XL. I don't recall whether we're offering a 4XL - check BackerKit.

    45. Erithan on August 29, 2015

      Not sure if it's been asked, but since it's never been specified are the autographed postcards well er autographed by you and Lori? (pardon any spelling errors, late here).

      Kay Are Ulvestad on August 23, 2015

      Is there any info on T-shirt sizes available? Sorry if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find any information about it.

      When I collapsed my new onto the old, everything was just fine, still had all my add-ons. It was when I went to upgrade it from Master Rogue to Immortal Image that it wiped out every add-on I had from before, including School Spirit and others.

    48. Corey Cole 2-time creator on August 21, 2015

      @Rata: Thanks for the info about the hat. That was my error filling in the forms - I'll fix it this weekend.

      Ref the yearbook, my misunderstanding of how their survey question system works - there's just one yearbook entry per backer (and it's no longer offered as an add-on).

      Headstones are also no longer available - did you collapse into your original (2012) pledge? That should have left your add-ons intact.

      BackerKit wasn't really designed for some of the things we're doing with it. They are doing a great job of helping us resolve the inevitable issues of merging four different types of pledges.

    49. Ratatoskr - Battle Squirrel of the Varl on August 20, 2015

      Also, the description of the hat add on says that it includes postage, but the backer kit is charging me $10. Is that a glitch or did something change?

    50. Ratatoskr - Battle Squirrel of the Varl on August 20, 2015

      Question. I got a Headstone as an add-on with my original pledge, but I don't see that as an option now. Did that disappear somewhere or is it in a different section of the backer survey?

      Also, it's showing that I have 2 yearbook images for some reason but I really only need 1. Do I need to do something to have you ignore the second one?
