Hero's Realm: Heroic Edition
I always wanted to publish a game based on everything I enjoyed as a kid. This will be the end result.

Lead four heroes and their teams against the evil forces of Mephistocles, the Lord of Demons in this retro-RPG adventure. Switch between the four heroes as you explore dungeons, ascend towers, spelunk caves, save villages and defeat the forces of evil! Reminiscent of classic NES/SNES-era RPGs, Hero's Realm is a fun romp in old-school RPG nostalgia.

  • Play as 4 powerful Heroes and their customizable party throughout a four chapter story, each with their own skillset & battle commands!
  • Come together in the final fifth to adventure with all four parties - switching between them anytime, even in boss battles!
  • Customize your heroes' party by selecting from 21 unique character classes split between the mage, warrior, and rogue specialties, including unlockable elite and master classes!

  • 25 character classes (12 base classes, 4 hero classes, 6 elite classes, 3 master classes)
  • Over 30 hours of game content and sidequests
  • Classic NES-era and SNES-era RPG gameplay
  • Multi-party switching system
  • Multi-party tactical battles
  • Expansive world map

If you like what I do and have done to date, consider being my patron so that I can continue doing it. A remastered game is just the start!

For anyone still following, I am just plugging away on spriting items for the item animations (when you open a chest, search a pot, etc.). The plan is to eventually use them to make a game sheet manual, like what they used to make for the old Dragon Warrior games on the NES.


You can see the many, many (many) images I've uploaded on the gameprofile here. I posted them regularly on Twitter, and even a quick summary on BlueSky ( https://bsky.app/profile/kentonagbone.bsky.social ). Please comment! I am desperate for validation.

Nintendium is the hardest material known to man

Again, I am focusing almost all of my efforts on making animations such as this because it is something I can quickly spin up and work on in short bursts, which is opportune with the kids' sports schedules during the week - I find myself sitting in a lobby of a sports complex or a nearby Tim Hortons several times in a given week.

Pelts and such

After I finally complete the item animations (I just have shields and weapons left - and for weapons I already have all of Avee's excellent weapon sprites. I just have to make miniturized 16x16(ish) versions of them), I will jump back into the battle animations. I need to figure out how to make FIRE. It's the next great challenge for me, spriting-wise! I'm oddly looking forward to it.

Flashdance Ashpants and Beefcake Pantyhose

When I started spriting in April of last year, I honestly never thought I'd make it this far. While I know I am relying a lot on references - and Avee's palette - I'm still pretty proud of myself. They are janky as hell, not all that great, but they're mine.

The top hats in the game!

Anyways, thanks for hanging in there with me. I promise that the updates will get more interesting soon.

I will leave you with this exciting teaser outline, courtesy of some secret work that Avee is doing...

who could this possibly be?

This will be the Duke Nukem Forever of RPG Maker, except without the Actually-Comes-Out part.
I'm never not looking forward to it.

That's the idea. It will always be in development

Hero's Realm: Better Late Than Never Edition
Here's to the next 3 years of working on this remaster!
I thought I'd write something: I realized that it's been a little more than 3 years since I began working on this project.

Thank you for your support and comments. I hope that my art will live up to the fans' expectations.
There were several assets to draw and I am close to being finished.
The best-looking stuff is yet to come.

And thank you Kentona for giving me this opportunity. Working on Hero's Realm Heroic Edition has been and still is very enjoyable :D
I mean... you've already made Heroes Realm before. You just have to do it again, right? ;p
Loved this game since forever and glad to see it get a commercial version, considering how successful HR is. Everything is looking sweet!

Hopefully I release it someday!
