About This Game


Heroes of Legionwood is an episodic retro-style fantasy RPG in set in a world on the brink of annihilation.

It has been 100 years since the world ended. Human civilization has been devastated by a malevolent force known only as the Darkness and only the last remnants of humanity remain. Playing the role of Locke, a young adventurer determined to save his people, you'll discover a world where your choices have consequences and every victory comes with a price. Can you discover the origin of the Darkness and stop it once and for all, or will you succumb to its influence, dooming Legionwood to destruction?

Heroes of Legionwood consists of three separate arcs, Age of Darkness, Resurrection and End of Days. Either installment can be played on its own, but all three of them will combine to form one epic adventure!

Features

  • 10+ hours of non-linear RPG gameplay in each episode

A pretty great concept used, enjoyable to play although a bit too short. I liked having 5 party members unlike typical rpgs. However, the conversation commands are crap. I said confident, not stuckup. And casual, not being a jerk! My character constantly surprises me with the words that spew out of his mouth. Other than that, gameplay is pretty fun.

This game is great, and I'm having a blast playing it. I've played a bunch of RPG Maker games, and honestly I was very impressed with it. In just my first sitting I had played the game for 5hours and I'm probably going to keep playing it.

This game is very unique, and special. Once you play a lot of lore heavy games, like Witcher 3 and the Tell Tale Games, you can really start to appreciate when games place a new well thought out world infront of you, and Heroes of Legionwood pulls that off very well.

The character customization impressed me and the whole scale of the combat system with the talents and tech's give you a lot of choice and nothing is just copy and pasted over to make it seem like theres alot of moves, there really is!

While talking to other characters in the game it makes it seem like your in a Fallout or Telltale game giving you multiple pathes and adding alot of replayablity to the game, which is another great part of this game.

To end this up its a pretty good game and something I really wasn't expecting from a RPGMaker game, heres to raising the bar for RPG Maker enthusiasts all over the internet!

Heroes of Legionwood is my first RPGmaker game ever. Thus far, I've only been interested in Let's Plays of this type of games, but not into playing them myself. When I saw HoL something triggered and I decided to try this one out. And I couldn't be happier! I am amazed how awesome it is! Got me hooked so much and the ending of the first Episode was Epic! Yes, I am writting this straight after I finished the game. xD No, I haven't played any other RPGmaker games until now and don't have anything to compare it with, but, I think, the fact a noob in this genre, got so blown away, does say something! I hope, at least! With a pure heart, I can easily say, it places among my favorite games of all times already. I'm super excited and looking forward to the next Episodes, as well as for more games from those creators! :)

I'm liking this game so far. I've played quite a few RPG Maker games and have dabbled in making my own a little. The first thing that impressed me was the character creation, simple to some perhaps, but I liked it. Credit where its due!

*I have played just over an hour, I may add on to this at a later stage..*

The world has a lot of flavour to it, while some might find that bland I find it interesting. After playing games like Skyrim and Dragon Age the lore of a world can really draw you in. Dark Gaia did have a lot of history behind this game seeing as it is the third in the Legionwood series but regardless, some of it is well worth the read.

(It has no relation to previous games bar the infrequent references.)

The talents and techs your character can learn deserve a mention as well, they vary quite a bit and give a lot of choice, which is always, always a good thing.

When talking to certain NPCs you are given four options which will dictate how you respond to an NPCs request/comment ranging from 'courageous' to 'serious' to 'casual' to 'snide'. I would do the whole -choose option and load a previous save- just to see the options, wasn't disappointed!

All in all its a decent game, (bar some rather appauling bugs which hopefully will be patched out at some point heres hoping), as RPG Maker games go it is among the better ones.

This game has SO MUCH potential - but right now I can't recommend it!

*PROS*
-Lovely use of the DS+ graphics
-Non-linear
-Great mapping
-Skill system/Field skills (Kind of in the middle on this one)

*CONS*
- Bugs. Passability bugs in the Manor, bugs with objectives (unable to interact with them and complete quests etc.), quest book bugs...just so many EASY that should have been caught in beta.
-Walls of flavorless text. You can tell the dev has a knack for writing - but there's no flavor to any of the characters - they're all...kind of the same when they talk.
- TOO MANY RANDOM ENCOUNTERS. Oh my god! I can't stress this one enough. Every few steps you're going to have to trudge through another battle - this is especially irritating when you've already done the area and are forced to head through it again. The Dev needs to take some inspiration from games like Deadly Sin 2 and input a "monster node" system - or something that turns off random encounters.
-Poorly fleshed out "Quest" book (and so many errors relating to it - I kept getting error windows 1/2 the times I accepted a quest).
-Poorly balanced battles
-Side quests - you're forced to trudge through WHOLE AREAS AGAIN to complete some side quests. This is my biggest pet peeve with most RPGMaker games - they need to be respectful of the players time and open up forms of fast travel/teleportation.

All in all - I can't say I'd recommend.

This is a good rpg maker game. It plays like an old snes rpg, like Dragon Warrior or something but you can also pick what to say in dialogs. What you pick can change what happens next which is kinda cool. Havent finished yet But i'm already eager for next episode.

this is a decent game, it's a bit on the short side but it's fun while it lasts. I did find the game a bit easy, I was playing on normal so maybe hard mode is a challenge. The dungeons are fairly well designed, and there is a fair few sidequests to keep you busy. It also has a system where you can choose how to respond to different situations, how you respond determines how characters will react to you and the favor of your teammates, the favor of your will become important near the end in an event I won't spoil here. There's also the chance to romance some party members though there dosen't seem to be much to it yet but will likely be expanded on in future installments. Also a word of warning this game ends on a rather big cliffhanger so I hope your willing to wait a few months to see the continuation.

I have played both previous Legionwood games and like them this is a game for fans of turn based RPGs. This is a step above the previous two, conversations are now influenced by you on top of the morality system from the second game. So far the story has a darker tone than the others and feels better written. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes these types of games, it even has a difficulty setting.

The enemies in the first areas are a bit difficult for the very start of the game, so some grinding is necessary but otherwise the game and its mechanics are great!

I have onyl play 20 minutes but the controls were clunky and some of the skills didn't work as they "should" have done based on their description. e.g. I get poisoned, use somehting to remove poison and it removes some of the poison;'s damage not the poison, meanin a waste
