Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption combines role-playing, puzzles, an immersive story and rich character interactions. As in the Quest for Glory series, every element works together to create a unique game experience.
In Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption, you take on the role of Shawn O'Conner, a would-be Thief who has had a rough life. As Shawn, you will attend Hero-U, a school that tries to teach young adventurers to be heroes. Shawn can continue his quest to join the Thieves' Guild, or he can strive to become a Rogue Hero. He has a lot to learn to succeed at either path.
Hero-U plays like a classic RPG, with turn-based tactical combat and exploration of the environment on top-down, 2D maps. There are traps, obstacles, and enemies for you to overcome as you explore the school and the ancient catacombs beneath it. Key scenes feature beautiful painted backdrops to let you see things from Shawn's perspective.
Shawn has skills and attributes that improve through gameplay. He will also acquire possessions that give you additional options.
In your hands, Shawn has real choices. If he does someone a favor, it is because he figures they will be useful to him later. If he wants to unleash nameless horrors of destruction upon the world, well, that's his business... and yours.
Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption has been successfully funded through Kickstarter and will be released on PC, Mac and Linux.
