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

Strictly For Commercial

I have embarked on a new journey...



Approximately one month ago I was approached by an angel investor to explore the possibility of flipping Hero's Realm into a commercial project. Like naive fool that I am who believes he has more time than ever, I tentatively agreed. (Details are still being hashed out).

While the month of June was hectic, July has slowed down and I have earnestly begun my work on cleaning up the game and getting it into a state such that custom resources can be created as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Hero's Realm is a large game that made very liberal use of Final Fantasy IV, V and VI rips, a ton of MIDIs for every possible mood and locale, and RTP resources. Minimizing this into a smaller more cohesive set while still maintaining the "feel" will be a tedious process, but it must be done.



A few weeks ago I compiled a list of all of the pertinent feedback that the game had garnered over the past 7 years since its release. I noted all of the major and minor bugs, suggestions on class balance and features, and general impressions left by the various facets of the game.

I also have a laundry list of small enhancements. Things like amplifying magic damage (spellcasters are underpowered), rebalancing classes, and rebalancing skills are all on the table. The Master classes will be toned down, weaker classes tweaked, some overpowered skills nerfed. I will also be adding 3 new Elite classes (Death Knight, Freelancer, and Assassin) to make greater use of the class change mechanic.

The numerous overt references to popular media will be changed to be more subtle. Dialog will be reviewed. The story, such as it is, will remain as is. If I have the wherewithal I would add a new final dungeon (something people identified as a weakness), but I am not certain yet.



This is all in the early stages. I don't have a timeline estimated yet (but I hope to get my initial work done within the next couple of months). The tentative plan is to NOT do a Kickstarter (too much hassle), but to do a Steam Greenlight, and then explore other avenues like itch.io. Stay tuned for notices about the Greenlight drive!

I am adamant about leaving up the original Hero's Realm for RM2k3 v1.5 up here on RMN. (It's already out there in droves so it's not like I have a realistic chance of scrubbing it out anyway). I hope that the enhancements, fixes, changes, and custom resources will be sufficient enough to encourage people to buy it over the original free version. And if it gets on Steam, the market is distinct enough that the free version wouldn't even be known. Plus, I couldn't give up the Makerscore.



If you guys are interested, I can post frequent blogs detailing my progress in my prep work. Otherwise I will just post announcements when major milestones have been achieved.

Wish me luck!



tl;dr - HR is going commercial

So I watched this and its pretty good! Seeing though how it's a blind playthrough I hope that you don't run into any glaring bugs.

It will be interesting to see someone play my game step-by-step - I've never experienced that before. I will definitely be watching the rest.

UPDATE: Solving the riddle of the Grundo Manor walkthrough has been posted.

Some people were having trouble with this puzzle in chapter 5 and I (finally) made a walkthrough for it.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but is there any way to get an immunity to sleep item in chapter 3, around the time of the big league tournament? No matter how much I level, Toyota just uses his sleepmore spell and pummels me to death.

EDIT: Honestly, the last time I tried to fight him, the very first skill he used was... heh... Sleep.

Game Over before I could even attack once.

The best I've ever done fighting this guy was getting lucky enough to cast sap and surround on him, and that one spell that boosts my defense, and then smack him around for nearly 2000 damage before he took me out.

So I found the problem with my logic (but haven't fixed it yet). When you choose your gender and if you select Nevermind... it will remove the party members BUT it doesn't end the event and continues processing, which leads to the game thinking that you have successfully selected your party.

Thus, do not choose "Nevermind..." when selecting gender because it is bugged!

I've PM'd you the link to the fixed savefile.

Thanks for playing, i hope you are enjoying it!

As for Chapter 3, I will look into it!

Also, in Okasa, the top of a tree is missing in the town. I'll try to find it again and take a screenshot.

EDIT:

This dude will sell an Insomniac Headband for 650g at the Okasa Nightmarket. You have to visit the market at night (lol capt. obvious) to buy from him. This will provide Sleep immunity.

Help! I have searched underfoot every square of the desert south of the jungle wilderness of Indhopal, and I cannot for the life of me find the Cave of Wonders. Any thoughts? Have I missed a triggering event that I need to perform in order for the cave to appear?
