Tale of Heroes is a punishing "Roguelike Action-RPG" currently in development. In 'Tale of Heroes' you will create your hero and equip him/her with 4 spells or abilities from a larger pool. These spells and abilities will define that character's playstyle. With your hero created you take on the mission to save a village from a great evil. Slay, quest and upgrade gear! If you don't die (oh, but you will) and manage to save the town, you can venture on to new adventures.
If you die you can create a new hero and try to save the same village, but watch out for the previous hero's ghost!
I'm also planning to release a map-creator for the game so that users can easily share and create their own content. This can range from balance changes or new items to a totally new map or even a new game. I will give the players the exact same tools I used when building the game.
Currently the game is only in alpha and I'm working as much as I can to finish it. I have a huge TODO-list which I'm slowly going through. Most of the main features are in the game already and many more is on the list. There is a somewhat of a long road ahead, but it's manageable! During the development of the game I will upload new builds to the website and blog about the progress, so make sure to subscribe for blog news!
