Quest for Glory is a point & click adventure series that is comprised of five single-player games, each taking place in a unique setting while maintaining a consistent and growing story throughout. Game elements include multiple class selection, story-rich narrative, story-based quests, unique class quests, and explorable landscapes. Additionally, certain non-player characters do persist through the series to help maintain a connection through the adventurer's travels.
