Hero-U Kickstarter is Live and Doing Very Well

Support the Hero-U Kickstarter

We’re off and running with the first game based on The School for Heroes, Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. In the first 24 hours, over 1200 of our generous fans got behind the project and pledged over $80,000. We are looking for a minimum goal of $400,000 to be able to develop and launch the full game. Please visit our Kickstarter page (linked above as the game title) and consider backing the project. Most importantly, tell your friends to visit us and spread the word.

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is the University-level version of the School for Heroes. Players will take on the role of Shawn O’Conner, a new student in the school. Yes, Hero-U has Rogues, not just Disbarred Bards. Shawn didn’t exactly enroll in Hero-U. He was sent there after getting caught in a botched thieving operation. As Shawn, you get to decide whether you want to keep trying to be a Thief, or if you want to work a lot harder to become a Rogue Hero. You will also get a chance to unravel the mysteries of your past and determine the course of your future.

Game-play-wise, we are treating this as an RPG with adventure and puzzle game aspects. Of course, the story and characters are critical, but we also want this to be a true role-playing game experience. We are creating a new tactical combat system and using a map-like top-down 2D interface to facilitate use of tactics and strategy. We also plan to have beautiful painted backdrops for key conversations and other important scenes.

We hope you will like what we’re doing as we move on to the next stage of the school’s development. Please visit the project and share it with your friends.

    Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a stand-alone game developed with Unity. It will run on a Windows PC, Macintosh, or Linux system. It does not require a Wweb browser (except to download the game if you get a digital version). It certainly does not require Facebook or any similar site.

    What are the system requirements for this game? A while back Ken Williams came out with a new game which required FaceBook and he said he didn’t know if it would be available in any other form.

    FaceBook doesn’t fly in my universe.

    At the end of the day on Wed., Nov. 7, we are now up to 3,200 backers and $200,000 in pledges – Halfway to our goal.

    So excited! I played QFG1 (the ‘typey’ version) so many times–it really got me into the world of computers! Thanks!

    One of my favorite parts of the Kickstarter campaign has been to see all of the awesome concept art posted there. I was a big fan of the work that Selwood did for AGDI’s remake of QFG2 and really wanted to see more of it incorporated in-game. It looks like he and the rest of your art team have a lot of awesome stuff in store for us.
