Steam Update #22

The latest Steam update improves the level progression so that you always get a Talent point when you unlock a high-level talent (12 and 18). To fix this small oversight, which was affect about half of the characters at level 18, we added a new Talent point for all characters once they achieved level 18-20.

We also made the curse resistance % you gain for each point of Willpower visible in the Attributes Leveling screen. You can see the total percent on your stats page (Will 5 (25%)).

Due to some build system updates, the Mac OS version is not yet available. We will publish it as soon as possible.

v2.2.41 - 10/17/2014
- Fixed Talent point distribution at levels 12 and 18
- New Talent point added for characters above Level 18-20
- Willpower lists curse resist % when leveling attributes
- Fixed graphic for Blessed Aura
- Fixed typos and map bugs

Steam Update #21

Our 21st update to Heroes of Steel on Steam completes another arc of the original game system design - now allowing Willpower to passively resist enemy curses. Based on your game's difficulty, each point of Willpower adds 3-5% of resistance. If you've got the Willpower, you'll see curses bouncing harmlessly off with "Resisted!" show on the screen.

Your final Willpower percentage is shown in your stat's screen. For Easy & Normal games you get 5%, for Hard and Brutal you get 4%, and on Nightmare only 3%.

About This Game

Command your party of four heroes as they fight to protect the last remnants of humanity. Born in a time of warring gods and dark powers, your four unlikely heroes embark on a grim journey set in the sprawling and immense post-apocalyptic medieval world of Steel.

It is the dawn of the Seventy First Year after the world has fallen. Four of the Thirteen Gods rose up against their creator, the All-Father, and destroyed him in a cataclysmic event. In the following years of darkness and ruin, the kingdoms of man fell in war and flame. In the final days before all was lost, under the guidance of an ancient order of druids, the survivors retreated to a mysterious underground labyrinth; the Underdeep. Now, in the Underdeep, the last remnants of humanity are scratching out a living and trying to rebuild a society, but are quickly discovering that evil has followed them beneath the surface.

Heroes of Steel is a tactical turn-based RPG in which you lead a group of four unique characters, each with their own talents, special powers, and abilities on their quest through the world of Steel. Engage in tactical combat with the ferocious, devious, and magical enemies who threaten humanity's last settlements. You must decide how to develop each character’s individual strategy in order to build a powerful and dynamic team capable of triumphing over the impossible odds. As you traverse the sprawling world of Steel, your party will face a myriad of challenges, battles, extensive mazes and fearsome enemies of all varieties.

Savor full character customization, deciding how to increase your attributes, skills, and powerful talents. Equip each of your characters with a variety of weapons, armor, and up to three mundane or magical accessories. As your party explores the dungeons, cities and crypts of the world, you will decide the overall strategy and approach your team takes. Choose between hundreds of levels of talents and thousands of combinations of equipment.

Our indie role playing games dev team is actively continuing development to make this the top RPG. We are very receptive to feedback to help Heroes be the best RPG it can be.

With full control of every turn and aspect of your four characters, you can plan every turn with exacting control. Heroes was made for fans of adventure RPGs, board games, and roguelikes. If you enjoy strategy games or tactical RPGs, you will enjoy this classic RPG.

I applaud the Trese Brothers for their attempt at making a solid turn-based RPG, however, it unfortunately falls pretty short. This is glaringly a mobile port, without even trying to mask it—there's even sort of ads to purchase the game on iOS and Android. Usually I don't have an issue with mobile ports, but I think the transition may have perhaps affected the controls. The responsiveness of the commands is hit or miss, which is what really breaks this game for me. I won't dog the art style as I saw many people do when this was in Greenlight, because it's much better than I could do.

I'm surprised I'm the first negative reviewer, but I'm sure most players received the game for free from a Groupees bundle(as I did) and are just being grateful. Most of the positive reviewers seem to have less than 30 minutes logged—take that how you will. I'm glad I didn't pay for this, as $12 about $10 too much. 4/10

I've been playing this game for several months on my Kindle Fire. I'm so glad it's finally on Steam. The PC version is great because you get the bigger screen, keyboard commands and quick keys, and easy zoom. The game is otherwise the same as the mobile versions. This is an enormous game which is not yet complete, and is constantly changing. I keep telling myself I will play something else but everytime there is a new update (which is very frequent, sometimes 2 per week) I have to try out the changes. There is one more character to be released, the Dueler, a warrior. To briefly describe the game: it is a turn based RPG with the standard 4 characters of warrior, cleric, thief and magician. The tactics part comes as you learn to fight the various monsters in this world and work on building your party with talents that complement and enhance each other. You can spend months just trying different character builds to see how they work and which characters they work best with. The replayability is incredible. Don't think you'll become bored by seeing the same maps over and over. The updates I mentioned often come with new bosses, new secret doors, new sidequests, new areas . . . as I mentioned before the game is constantly changing. You can play at several difficulty levels from easy to nightmare (for those gluttons for punishment). I know that other reviews will tell about the storyline plus you can read the description from the developers, so I won't go into that except to say that it is complex and very interesting. Heroes of Steel provides you so much value for your money. It is larger than many games I have bought at two or three times the price and will keep you entertained far longer.
This review has gotten too long, I need to go back to the game!

Heroes of Steel is a fantastic experience to play. I was first introduced to RPG games by the Trese Brothers' mobile offerings, and it's amazing to see how far they've come. The artwork and music makes Heroes of Steel much more exciting, atmospheric and eerie than I had expected, and it far surpasses most full 3D games made by big companies. The talents system is my favourite feature, it’s incredibly intuitive and really lets you get into the game quickly. I also love the key bindings, mouse zoom and detailed artwork that make the game seem natural for the PC. Overall, a game so superb that it keeps me hooked, despite the fact that RPGs aren’t my favourite genre.

As one can deduct from the title this is a tactical fantasy role-playing game. What you can't deduct is that this game is great. I only played it for a bit and i can guarantee its fun! At the end of the day this is why we play games, isn't it ? Character design looks great, gameplay is solid and the story keeps you wanting more and more. If i wouldn't have to get up at 6 am for work i doubt i would go to sleep. This is the first game from Trese Brothers that i played, though as i understood, this guys have done a great job so far; all of their games are updated and improved constantly, and they are also pretty close with the community. Looking forward to play it more! Review is subject to additions as soon as i'll have some more to share.
