We are opening Expansions a bit

So since we have 4 tabs in the serverlist, we will instead just have 1 server list. Anyone can join any expansion server, but only host the ones they own. So you can technically play all the DLC without buying them if someone who has them hosts a game with them.

BUT you still wont access the DLC exclusive relics, class etc.

Anyway we wanna simplyfy how the serverlist works and connect more players to each other!

Any thoughts you have, please share!

Alot of Fixes to online multiplayer

We have sat down to read the most "helpful" reviews which are mostly negative since there have been problems in the game. We really worked hard and took action to fix all those, and have managed to iron them out! I'd like to personally thank everyone who has taken the time to actually write a review of the game, negative or positive. It helps alot to be able to read them! After all thats what we want, a product as flawless as possible!

Hero Siege is a Wavebased Hack 'N Slash game with an gearing system similiar to Diablo III.

Pros:
- Hero Siege has a good amount of Class Selection
- The Relict System and the given Effects are really cool.
- The Buy & Sell System is minimalistic, but effective.

Cons:
- Hero Siege can only handle Multiplayer Sessions from LAN. The Network Protocoll is too slow for Multiplayer Sessions over TCP/IP and the Developers told me, that they wouldnt fix that in the future, because its "too much work".

- The Game is tagged as "Full Controller Support", but be carefull this software only works with XInput compatible devices! (XBOX & PS3 Controllers)


Hero Siege has potential and is a good Hack 'N Slash Mashup, but it needs a lot of performance polishment before I can say, its a Release Title. Hero Siege is worth a shot, but be carefull! If you would play Online with your friends will you find a better option.

I have some mixed feelings about this game. I like the combat and the progression it has a bunch of flaws but they could be fixed. I love how you can make twelve characters and level them up a ton, upgrade skills, and get better gear. As you play through wave type missions you get gear or unlock a new skill that is really good and it makes you feel amazing.

But, online however. There is little to no players (atleast when I tried online) and as far as I can tell there is no way to tell what level characters are on that server you are about to join. Also they need better profanity filters considering half the people that were playing online had either a curse word or some random dirty thing in their name.

If this game gets more players and a better community it could be really good I have fun with it and I really like the split screen addition to the game. Because the gameplay, graphics and overall feel to the game is good I would recommend this game the online is poor and doesn't work very good at the moment but if they fix it, it would 100% be worth the cheap price. Plus single player is already plenty fun.

Ignore the sour and stroppy community; this game is still great. Yes, it's changed over time, but it's not objectively worse. This includes the mana system, which everyone seems to cry about. The single player mode gives hours of playtime and makes the game worth the price (+DLC).

Oh, but avoid multiplayer like the f--u--c--k--ing plague; it's terrible at the moment.

After 10 hours, I sadly think I'm done with this game. It had potential, but it feels awfully repetive and very grind-y as a solo experience. I haven't taken this online, but if my character feels underwhelming after 10 hours, that's not good news seeing as how I couldn't use my campaign character in online mode.

Three Words. WHAT. THE. HELL. This game is broken! It seemed cool, BUT IT'S UNPLAYABLE! The game is stuck in perma-slowmotion. It literally just eats you $5 at this point. If the devs don't fix this, they should give up on developing in general, as they are unable to fix a game breaking bug that THEY IMPLEMENTED!! According to a large portion of the player base, this game was fine until they started updating it alot, and it got worse and worse to the pint of THIS BROKEN GAME. DO NOT BUY UNTIL BUG IS FIXED. (IF IT EVER HAPPENS...)

This used to be a very fun game. However, with every patch they are finding ways to slow the game down.

In their game credits they mention their games are created in effort to fight mainstream AAA companys. However with every patch this game is turning into an almost carbon copy of a certain mainstream AAA title. The devs also seem to have the ego's of a AAA company and just seem to ignore any feedback.

Thanks for the fun, whilst it was there.

After almost 100 hours of time in this game, and even purchasing it BEFORE the DLC even came out, I must say, I can't recommend it. Unfortunately the reason I can't recommend this game at least anymore is because of the updates they keep pushing.

The good:
Fun game full of different ways of playing
Good amount of playability and replayability
Updates still being made
Content still being added
Many classes with their own unique builds and skills
Edit: Great devs who do respond to feedback in a positive and kind manor

The bad:
While still being updated, more often than not the updates are worsening the game
Classes unlocked by purchasing DLC
Very slow gameplay in the beginning
BUGS. Lots and lots of bugs.

As far as bugs go, one major part of this game is to have Wormholes (dungeons available by purchasing a key with in-game gold) useable, unfortunately a bug that has yet to be fixed that a few people have (including myself) is that players cannot use our wormhole keys.

Relics are limited now, stats nerfed, classes buffed, then nerfed, then buffed, item stats nerfed, etc. I cannot recommend it until balance issues have been resolved to the point where there's not constant change.

Edit: reworded last section, removed a certain section.

I had a fair amount of fun with this when I first bought it, but due to a series of bad patches and updates it became a broken, unplayable mess. Classic example of if it's not broken, don't fix it.

EDIT: I am still steamrolling as a level 80 in the Nightmare difficulty, already haven beaten the rare version of Damien. Anubis may be difficult, but this is still just a massive steamroll.



TL;DR: easy grind that's irritating while still easy, just takes ages


This game has so many pros. It's just that it's easy & annoying in different aspects.

This game is too easy in some ways. I'm a level 29 (30?) Pyromancer at the moment. All I do is spam the 2nd special attack whenever it gets too hot (pun unintended) and it wipes out everything next to me in seconds. The enemies will never do enough damage to put me in any actual danger, and it's never fun. The 2nd Throne Boss (death) died in less than a second, i'm not lying. If you really want me to prove it, add me and i'll put a video of it on Twitch.

And the voice acting is just plain irritating. (and before you tell me that I should mute it, stop. i already did.) The Pyromancer has such an irritating voice. "YOU... ARE... FIRED" This wasn't even funny the first time. "THIS DUNGEON SHALL TURN TO ASHES..." Even MORE irritating. And he says this EVERY time he goes into a dungeon. The voice acting is annoying and has no variety, and it just ruins the feel of it.

The music is okay, I guess. But it just plays the same track for each act over & over again. It doesn't have multiple tracks for each act, just one per Act. And while you spent a ton of time on each act, it gets unoriginal.

I forgot to say, there's a ton of acts. And you can't get all of the achievements without buying the DLC (yes, that's correct, rare achievement hunters). Each act starts rather difficult, but the more you level up it gets so easy it's boring. And you just steamroll through it so quickly. This game's too easy, it's just one massive long grind. And I never thought an easy grind existed.

Permenantly banned for saying "tmw the dev doesn't even have 100h on the game he 'codes' for"

I can't stop laughing.
Trash developers (wouldn't call then that because they use game maker. That 10yr old friendly program)

Stupid game changing updates ( literally completely remaking key features and ruining them every update)

I get that games take time to get perfect and sometimes the devs never play much theirselves, but for a game dev to have played a measly 75h on a game thats been on steam for quite some time and to change key parts of the game with each update is ridiculous.


Don't buy this game, don't fund the developers.

The game does not fully work with Windows 10. From testing on this side, my Nvidia based hardware machines do not load. You can go into the processes and see the game sitting there, churnig 15% of my CPU cycles but the game never loads. On AMD Machines here the RX 200 series loads fine every time, but the RX 300 series only loads about half the time. This can be indicative of inherent compatibilities with the underlying structure of the OS or a code incompatibility. I cannot say, But I have three machines on windows 10 here with NVidia hardware and none of them load. I find it confusing and mildly irritating. Top it off, the company themselves present themselves as being unsympathetic to people asking for help with the game not functioning, saying "It works fine for 'X' person on our team, and they use Windows 10, so it's your fault.". It may be something with the way I configure my windows, maybe because I disable all of the functions in the OS that snoop, and the same in my browser? I cannot tell you. All I can say is that, for me, the game does not load in Windows 10 except for on my AMD hardware, which aren't always set up to use. So as such I cannot recommend this game to others at this current state. Which is a shame really, as the game is fun.

This game isn't that bad, it has solid controls, decent atmospheric visuals and a pretty good gameplay loop. The problem I have with it is the pacing, it just feels really slow. I haven't played much of the game and I've only played a few classes, but the classes that I did play seemed underpowered at the beginning stages of the game. 2 of the 3 characters I tried had slow attacks that were pretty weak at the beginning of the game. The other character had a faster attack that still seemed pretty weak. It's just hard for me to get interested in a game which requires replaying the same level over and over to farm for experience points.
I mean, maybe I just suck and other people have no problems at all getting past the first waves, I don't know. This game feels to me like it was balanced and designed around multiplayer, so playing it singleplayer I just ended up dying a lot to enemies who have aoe attacks which one-shot low level characters and having to start all over. This wouldn't be as annoying if you actually got sent to the first wave after the last miniboss you beat, but you don't. You get sent back to the beginning of the level and you have to slowly beat all of the other waves to get back to the one you're having troubles with. I honestly can't reccomend it because even though I did have some fun playing it, it kind of felt like a chore, and it's just not a game that I see myself playing again.

My god, the game creators just keep on nerfing everything in this game. So many things have got nerfed to the point were you are under powerd. Max relics are now only 20 instead of being in the 30's, life steal has been reduced to 2.5! WTF. Also mana per hit has gone down to 1 from 5... Life steal has gotten nerfed, you now can lose your WH key from starting a new season. This is ♥♥♥♥ing insane, they are just nerfing everything so hard to the point were the game isnt even fun anymore. The bosses have gotten nerfed, some of the rare enemys have gotten nerfed, a ton of items and relics have gotten nerfed, selling items for gold has gotten nerfed! But they did increase the damage that level 1 players do... which didnt even need the buff. The damage was perfectly fine in my eyes, I would be able to take out a enemy in about 4 hits. Also the skills did great damage as well, but the buffed the damage on level 1 characters. This makes no sense...

Great Roguelike, low spec requirements so your grandma's toaster can run it. all-around pretty good play.

And here are my issues with it:
Day one DLC (Karp off doom [ seriously? karp?])
the main story plot is boring and passes faster than a drunk at a party.
Graphics are okay, i guess. doesnt make it super unplayable but no big deal.
And lastly a "Donation" DLC. like ♥♥♥♥ off you 'holier-than thou' ♥♥♥♥s.

3/10 would get an 8 but the dlc's ♥♥♥♥ me off.

It scratched an itch for me and took me down memory lane. Ill be playing alot more of this and i reccomend you do too

I love this game, and it is very addicting, but I had a level 113 Sammuri on the orange skull mode on singleplayer. I went online to play with some friends and when i went back to the singleplayer, my character was gone. Instead was my level 7 redneck that I deleted a while back...
