Choicest VGM - VGM #161 - Quest for Glory III - Awari

Composed by: Rudy Helm

Today's Choicest VGM track is probably one of my favourite's in the game, even though it sounds almost comical and oafish. There's probably good reasons for it sounding that way since not only is it the track that plays when you play the game "Awari" (which is actually based off the real-life game Oware) but it serves as a theme song for the laibon's son, Yesufu ("laibon" is a title bestowed upon the leader of a Simbani tribe). Anyway, I had lots of fun playing Awari in Quest for Glory III and also befriending Yesufu as even though he seems rather naive at first, his curiosity, bravery and honour are all qualities that make him a good ally and ultimately a wise leader.

Thanks to Sierra On-Line and Quest Studios for providing these memorable tracks.
