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

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 need the RM2k3 RTP installed.

Hey Kentona any ETA on the final chapter? I played the original 4 to the end soon after you finished them but I've never had a chance to complete the game and it was a blast. I'd adore to see it through to the end.

I'm getting closer! I won't finish it before the end of the year (like I wanted to) but early 2009 definitely. Maybe even January...

It's been around since April 2006, so it's possible.
how long do you thing it will take to beat the game?

Good question! I am anticipating 7 - 10 hours, but I've had reports of people spending that long on the demo (finding every little secret, I suppose), which ended about the halfway mark of the game . My time estimates are somewhat biased, since I know all the game's secrets and plot flow.

When is Hero's Realm going to be complete :(

Early 2009

I worked hardcore for December and burnt myself out a bit. I have a final TODO list in my blog if you care to follow along.

It kind of contains spoilers, but the list is pretty vague.
I don't want Hero's Realm to be spoiled. It is too brilliant.
How would HR get spoiled? It definitely needs finishing but I hope I get through Chapter 2 unlike the last time. >.>"

I'm starting to worry that the game won't live up to expectations. Especially certain people.

@ZPE: brandon's referring to my Countdown to Completion blog.
You have only two months left until "Early 2009" is no longer true ......

kentona, this is shaping up nicely. I can't wait to play the next version. :D
