The Week of January 20 2019

A COLORFUL first person adventure game that combines action, negotiation and ROGUE-LITE ELEMENTS! Progress through the levels and the story, choose your path, but above all, recruit allies. All the strange characters you meet in game can be played in first person, and it’s up to you to find the right answers to get them to join your team! Idiotic workmen, MYSTERY FROM OUTER SPACE, ODDBALL FRIENDS, AND FAST COMBATS AWAIT!
Heroes Ravage is a satire and a love letter to the old RPG genre, where the heroes would enter every house in the game steal all the items from the starving inhabitants and then demand answers about a strange white haired man. In this game we decide to give control of the villagers to players, and have them defend their valuables from the Heroes (Thieves). You can imagine something along the lines of rainbow six siege, but instead of killing each other the goal is to hide or steal all the Green Crystals (a la Zelda Style).
Have you ever wanted to take the reins of a small but humble space station, and build it into something epic, as you explore distant galaxies, mine precious minerals, take on daring missions and trade with other space inhabitants. Join us if so, your space station awaits.
