File:Homestar Runner as The Hero.png Homestar Runner The Hero from Hero's Quest (EGA) The look of the player's avatar from the original version of the Sierra role-playing game Hero's Quest: So You Want To Be a Hero. The series was retitled Quest for Glory after a copyright dispute with Milton Bradley over the name to their HeroQuest board game.
The original release of the game featured the limited palette of EGA graphics, hence the bright colors of Homestar's costume. A rerelease used VGA graphics that allowed for more realistic colors.
