Downloads for Quest for glory 1: So you want to be a hero
The game advertised itself as "three games in one" since it was the first Sierra game that (according to RPG customs), allowed the selection of a character out of three classes: Fighter, Magic User and Thief.
This is one of the few Sierra adventure games where the player character has few or no speaking lines; although the player can input commands such as "ask about brigands", the player character has almost no dialogue.
Like some other games by Sierra, a VGA version using Sierra's 'point and click' SCI1.1 interpreter was released in 1992. As a result of some limitations of this version, many die-hard fans of Quest for Glory resent the VGA rendition due to the lack of movement that was prevalent in the original, which used the 'text parser' based SCI0.
The game's villain, Baba Yaga, is a creature of the Slavic folklore. Although her presence is incongruous in a Germanic setting, Baba Yaga reappears in Quest for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness, which has a proper Slavic setting.
