Version 1.5 of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is Live!

Version 1.5 of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption released!

We have just released Version 1.5 of Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. This is a small change in nomenclature – We might have called it Patch 5 previously – but it contains some big quality of life improvements to the game.

Graphical version of this announcement.

Version 1.5 includes:
  • Added a version label to the Start Menu, especially for GOG players who do not get automatic updates.
  • Fixes to the “pacifist” route against the Wraith King.
  • Using the Null runestone against the Wraith King will now behave more logically.
  • Thomas can only be given the One and Only Ring once.
  • Cleaned up an inconsistency with “Lockpicking” and “Tool Use” in the user interface.
  • Improved appearance of the Tentacle Monster.
  • Tweaked sound effects and particle effects on monsters.
  • Fix combat bug with traps and messages not reporting the same damage amount.
  • The Cloaker in the Catacombs now properly registers as magical.
  • Only allow Shawn to greet the Librarian once per day.
  • Fixes to bulk sales of the Dried Fish and Empty Wine Bottles.
  • Tweak to early game quests and sound effects.
  • Fix nonsensical tooltips for some late-game monsters.
  • Hundreds of typos and minor scripting bugs, pointed out by our players on Steam and on the forums. Thanks, everyone!
  • A newer, shinier Tentacle Monster.

Steam will automatically update Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption to the latest build when you start the game.

New Build - "Patch 4" - is Live!



We've updated Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption with several "quality of life" improvements along with dozens of game tweaks (mostly audio, along with a "final" fix to the long-troublesome Katie quest chain) to reported issues. Steam will automatically give you the new update when you play the game.

The biggest changes are in the Settings page - now also available from the main menu. A much-requested feature is the ability to speed up character (including monsters and other non-player characters) in the game. If you like a faster pace, this feature is for you. Character animation might look a bit strange at higher speeds.

Also added to settings are options for switching between full screen and windowed mode and some other options for the adventurous.

"Done" items in the Journal To Do list now show the most recently completed ones on top so you don't have to page to the end to see your progress.

Deleting game saves now works better.

The Boss Wraith battle is now slightly more challenging with the Wraith's ability to summon monsters to help him. The well-prepared player will still get through it just fine, but it's no longer a pushover.

Speaking of bosses, we've decided to make the Rogue to Redemption Bestiary a free download! This is a beautiful art book PDF with all of the Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption monsters and a few strategy tips. For now, click on "View the quick reference" on our store page to download it. We will make it available as Free DLC soon.



Also coming soon to https://www.hero-u.com will be a free interactive Hint and Strategy Guide. We're making it a web page so that we can update it easily with new and improved hints.

“The founding family of Quest for Glory has returned with an all-new unofficial entry that proves worthy of its predecessors’ legacy yet still manages to distinguish itself entirely on its own.”

“Lives up to the Quest for Glory legacy.Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a great hybrid adventure roleplaying game that hits all of the nostalgia of 80’s and 90’s Sierra and Quest For Glory games, whilst still being its own outstanding modern adventure.”

About This Game

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is an epic fantasy adventure and role-playing game by Lori Ann Cole and Corey Cole, creators of Quest for Glory, Shannara, Castle of Dr. Brain, and Mixed-Up Fairy Tales. Although Hero-U is not a direct sequel to the Quest for Glory games, it features the same mix of adventure, role-playing, humor, and immersive storytelling that we introduced in that series.

In Rogue to Redemption, Shawn O'Conner strives to become Rogue of the Year while exploring a mysterious castle, making friends and enemies, fighting deadly foes, and uncovering the secrets of his own hidden past. Meanwhile players will enjoy the rich and humorous dialogue and descriptions as they guide Shawn through his adventures.

During the day, Shawn attends classes at the University, practices his skills, and tries to make friends with other students. At night, it's time to pull out weapons, armor, and traps to explore the abandoned wine cellars, stunning sea caves, creepy catacombs, and deadly dungeon beneath Hero-U. Most combat is optional for those who prefer a pure adventure game, but there are ample rewards for those who choose to valorously fight the creatures that threaten the school and all of Sardonia.
