Once a fabled assassin, you hunted those who jeopardized the order and balance of your home planet, Odorus. Now, after a blinding flash of light during a routine mission to stop a murderer who calls himself The Apprentice, you find yourself alone on a mysterious island with little recollection of the task at hand. Can you complete your original mission and stop this mysterious killer before he gets to Andoru?
Heroes of Umbra is short 2D side-scrolling multiplayer RPG that plays similar to games like MapleStory, Super Metroid, and Diablo. You can hack and slash away slimes or duke it out with your buddies in the battle arena. Target platforms include Desktop (cross-platform), Android, and OUYA.
Unlike its paraquel, Starless Umbra, HoU features 100% original assets and music. I'm retaining a strict 16-color palette for all game assets to maintain visual integrity and capture the SNES-era look-and-feel. The game emphasizes gameplay over storytelling like many classic 8- and 16-bit adventure games.
Because it's so easy to push builds with dropbox, you can always get the latest version of the game at play.heroesofumbra.com. I will still try to update the RMN links regularly, but I generally deploy new builds a few times a week. Search #HeroesOfUmbra on twitter for a changelog.
