Generic RM2k3 RTP Gaming Fun!

I always wanted to make that game based on everything I enjoyed as a kid. This is the end result.



Hero's Realm creates a super-synergy of proactive features to create a gaming experience greater than the sum of its parts.


Lead four heroes and their teams against the evil forces of Mephistocles, the Lord of Demons in this retro-RPG adventure. Toggle between the four heroes as you explore dungeons, ascend towers, spelunk caves, save villages and defeat the forces of evil! Reminiscent of classic RPGs such as Dragon Quest III and Final Fantasy V, Hero's Realm is a fun romp in old-school RPG nostalgia.


-22 character classes (12 base classes, 4 hero classes, 3 secret classes, 3 master classes)
-TONS of game content and sidequests
-Classic NES-era and SNES-era RPG gameplay
-Great music
-Multi-party switching system (like Kefka's Tower in FFVI!)
-Multi-party tactical battles (at least 5 of them!)
-Massive world map
-Fun


The story is split into 5 chapters, with each of the first four chapters focusing on a new hero, and the 5th chapter bringing them all together.

Chapter 1: Won't Somebody Please Think of the Children?
Chapter 2: There is Something Fishy Going on...
Chapter 3: Land of the Rising Son
Chapter 4: True Calling
Chapter 5: The War on Terror

You can get only the Ring of the Ancients or the Prismatic Book. It's an either-or situation, and there is no way to get them in any other way iirc.

Also, I can't remember if changing class will make the hero forget Prismatic Burst! I am thinking that it would be forgotten! Which would be a bug. I will make note of it.*


I have seem to have lost my accessories list. I will see if I have a backup of it somewhere and upload it.

As for the Globe, the files were on a very old server (two server moves ago) and I might have lost them. I didn't make the globe. It was very cool though. I will try digging around some backups I had to see if the files are there. HOWEVER, when Java was updated to version 7 (iirc) it required that all programs executed be verified else Java would refuse to run it. The globe was using an old version of Java that didn't have that requirement. So to get it to run you have to add an explicit exception in your local Java settings, otherwise it treats it like some sort of malicious code and gives the user ominous warnings about it. Maybe I can find that source code and fix it.

I am about to go camping for 4 days though, and won't be back until Thursday night. So Friday at the earliest!

Thanks for playing!



* I went and took a look. Only the Hero Classes can use the book and learn the spell, so it's okay. Regular 'heroes' can't learn it.
Hey Kentona, where is the information on the "Prismatic Book" that you get from the Queen of Jardin at night time when she asks "Can you promise me that you will guard this relic with your lives?" and answer "No"? I could not find anything on rpgmaker.net or your game site for Heroe's Realm. I am wondering if you teach the spell "Prismatic Burst" then upgrade your character to a master class, will the spell still be learned? Or do you have to wait until after you have upgraded to a master class to teach the spell? Are there other in game stuff not mentioned by you or anywhere else on the web I should look out for?

Edit: I tried saying "Yes" with a previous save and I got "ring of the ancients". I can't find information on accessories on your website under "equipment". Adding an accessories section under "equipment" on your website would be greatly appreciated. Is it possible to get ring of the ancients in another way if you had said "No" for the prismatic book instead?

Edit: Can you fix the "Worldmap Globe" on your website? It leads to a 404 not found error.

I added a quick bugfix to allow Jokers to change class to a Daredevil at level 20 like they were supposed to be able to.

Get the fix here:

Paste the map file into the main folder for Hero's Realm and overwrite the existing file.

In the second floor bedroom, there is a switch on the wall blocked by a cat. Wait for the cat to move out of the way and flick the switch to reveal the stairs on the main floor.


also, metal enemies?

Kentona please. How in the world do I get the chest in the shops in San Vegas? I can't figure it out for the life of me. It looks like i have to come from underground but there are no entrances in town that I can find. It's driving me crazy. Also, where were those metal enemies located because i cant remember for the life of me.

Also, the bug is related to the fact that I have a switch controlling when you can go over or under the bridges in cities that have them (Cidney, Bombomb, etc..) and the switch triggers when you try to access and/or leave the bridge BUT I neglected to also reset that switch if the user warps or teleports off of the bridge area.

Thanks for playing!
HELP!!! "I can't get pass the shadow bug"

So I'm on "Assembling the airship" chapter right now and everything was fine until I was asked to collect 6 Gas Bladders from Gas Dragons. When I'm done with collecting the materials, this is what happened:



There's some kind of invisible force that blocks my way, and I noticed this one as well..



I can't get pass any shadows right now and my life stuck on this episode as well T_T
I hope you're still around kentona to fix this bug.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, nevermind! Somehow I managed to fix this issue by entering the INN to access the bridge on the 2nd floor and now that particular "Force" has gone :D Yay~



Thank you kentona for making this awesome game!
Little Late On the News of this going commercial. First of all Congratulations! I'm Glad you'll Finally be getting something out of this massive labor of love you made here, And I'm looking forward to playing the Commercial version as soon as you are finished with it.Right after the release of Half-Life 3

But Anyway Here's to hoping Pewdiepie or somebody else almost as Popular finds it when you put it on steam, And you soon begin to swim in Cash! You deserve it.

Thanks! I'll need it.
Just read that this is going commercial. Congrats. I, for one, am looking forward to it. HR is one of my favourite RM2k3 games.

Good luck with all the work involved.

Is punching now-tiny dinosaurs not enough?


Oooo. I must have missed those! But I still think a DBS sequence as golem would be cool.

Hey kentona. I have an idea for when you next update this game / revise it for commercial release. You should have a section where you fight something / somethings IN the Colossus! I loved the bit where you do the Colossus dungeon and get into it and then pilot it and smash rocks. But what about making a BattleCharacterset for it and then fighting some giant monster or dinosaur or ape or something on a Battlebackground that looks like the worldmap? That would be SO COOL! Go go powerrangers!
because we love your gam

EDIT: Also because this:

I think I will take a more conservative stab at this (Hero's Realm remake?) and see where it ends up. Ara Fell development and release is an inspiration!

why the hell is this trending right now?

Well I didnt rig the system. Nosiree!

(There is a near constant stream of downloads which keeps the buzz hovering between positions 20-50. Couple that with the recent discussions on the FAQ and the Class Tiers and it can reach top 12 which then nets frontpage exposure which increases downloads. Then maybe even a sub or two and boom!)

Remember buzz is generated by user activity - posts downloads subscriptions reviews views and user created media. As a dev I can't farm buzz.

Thumbs up to the rebuild

Hey - why the hell is this game buzzing all of a sudden? There are no new images submitted, nor new blog posts, or anything of the sort lately - so what the hell!?

Damn it, Hero’s Realm – you are NOT Pom Gets Wi-Fi! Only that game can continue to buzz without any new material submitted for it. What do you think this is!?

EDIT: Pfft, I love how my one comment has now rocketed Hero’s Realm up the buzzing standings by seven whole positions, lol. It’s like a regular night in the National Hockey League when a team wins two games in a row and has suddenly gone from 12th place overall to 3rd in one night, lol.

Sounds like a glitch... Can you send me your savefile? Upload it to your locker and post a link to it or send me a Message and I can take a look (or email it to me kenton.anderson :at: gmail.com)
