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

Congrats on being the hero of 2k3 for over a decade!
On this day 10 years ago, Hero's Realm v1.0 was released on RMN. Here's to another 10 years of not accomplishing anything of merit since!

…My mom’s a hero.

No uh...I think, if this game lead to games likes BlackMoon Prophecy and Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass reaching wider audiences, I think there’s something of merit here. At the end of the day, people just want to play a really good game.

The only thing that held me back from playing Heroes Realm were the animations – Having said that, I'm also really looking forward to the commercial release for this. If you can do it, others will follow in your footsteps.

Here’s to another 10 years Kentona♥!

Yeah, the Lightsabre is pretty OP.
I finished the game, it was overall pretty good, the final boss was a joke though, I just had holdana equipped with the lightsabre, after using pummel holdana hit him 30 times in one attack, did that a couple of times and he was dead.
I don't know why but installing the font of FF6 doesn't work on my new computer.

I'm glad you enjoyed it and took the time to comment!
Finished the game. It was a really great experience. I am looking forward to when you complete the enhanced version of this game, the heroic addition. If you put it on steam I would gladly buy it (assuming a reasonable price of course).
I got a division by 0 error when facing Urok. Going to redo everything since last save, hopefully this same error doesn't happen again. Edit: Seemed to just be a fluke error, went through the same content a second time and this time I didn't trigger the error, strange.

perhaps it should live say that that

Is this a grammar mistake? Shouldn't it be "What kind of person would build live inside a well, anyway?
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!

Damn I'm experiencing the same bug as you. This is game-breaking since I can't progress anymore. I'll try out what you did to see if it fixes the problem. Edit: It worked.

I have heard that if a gamepad is plugged in when you start 2k3 games that sometimes strange things happen with the input. But I've never tested that out myself. I have no explanation for you.
Well,that was weird,i swear yesterday when i first tried the only thing that worked was alt for action,but today it all works fine.Thanks anyway.

Arrow keys move, Z or Enter is your 'Action' button. X or Esc is your 'Cancel/Menu' button. Shift searches underfoot. 1-2-3-4 keys are used in chapter five to switch between your four parties.
My game is either broken or im just dumb,but i cant figure out the commands,just that alt is select.
About Prismatic Burst. . . it's damage output seems low. What does it actually do?
As long as there's Steam cards, I'm sure people will forgive the lack of achieves.
