Hero Keeper is a real time strategy game that will have you constructing a kingdom to attract heroes who will explore, fight, shop and quest in your realm. Heroes will buy and find equipment, potions, charms, magic books and much more that they can use to become more powerful and gain new abilities! Throughout the campaign you will be faced with fighting hordes of monster and even other Kingdoms with their own Heroes.

Alongside the campaign there is also a skirmish mode that will allow you to customise the way you play, you can fight monsters or rival kingdoms as well as play on different types of random maps. Hero Keeper supports rival kingdom AI who will build up and attract heroes the same as you would, the AI will also play differently every time having many different strategy’s to choose from.Heroes have different personalities for instance; Knights will occasionally rush off to do battle on their own while thieves will steal gold from your shops as well as enemy kingdoms and monsters.

-Campaign and Skirmish modes

-Build a kingdom to attract heroes and destroy your rivals!

Content Update 1.1.23


Play a new content quest and unlock the ability for legendary chests to spawn and watch your heroes use unique item abilities on their enemies!

This update provides you with a new quest, that once completed will allow Legendary Chests to spawn not only in skirmish mode but the campaign as well. These chests will provide a random legendary item to the hero that opens it.

Unlike regular items, legendary items will visually show up on heroes that have them. So if you have a horde of giant spiders attacking your towers for instance, you’ll know to look for a Hero that is wearing the Head of the spider queen. An item that allows the hero that wears it to summon a small horde of spiders to do their bidding.

More Legendary items will be added with future updates alongside new quests to unlock even more content!

Legendary Items: the bomb Bag Legendary Items: Head Of The Spider Queen

Tracked. I would suggest drawing better sprites for the village and others.

Thanks for tracking and the suggestion! I’ll look into changing the designs for the structures as soon as the new UI and menu’s are ready.
