I saw a game turn up on Steam today called Heroine's Quest. That's funny, I thought, that sounds a lot like Hero's Quest. Only with a female main character instead of a male.
Turns out that's exactly what it is. Heroine's Quest is about as perfect a tribute to Sierra's classic Quest for Glory series (originally called Hero's Quest until a forced name change) as you could hope for, from the fusing of adventure and RPG elements to the first two game's trademark visual style.
It's not a re-skin or anything, though; this is an all-new game.
The best part, though, might be that it's free. So get on it. And if you think the character selection and ability training is reminiscent of more modern RPGs, know that Quest For Glory actually pioneered a lot of that stuff.
