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.

Around 58 hours I played this and that was before all the great updates and the latest expansion(free expansions). I could have went on playing much more, this game is HUGE> Huge world with many dungeons to explore. much loot to find, many characters to encounter, upgrading system, great world map, towns to explore, skills to try on enemies, interesting story and quests, and much more. I enjoy this game so much and I plan on starting over because so much has been added. Also great developers that will help with anything, so hands on. One of my surprise games for sure, also I found myself getting attached to my team. Knowing them and their backstories really added to the fun.

Really nice RPG with a cool story.
Lots of fighting, big dungeons, cool premise (society had to go underground). I just completed Act 1 of Episode 1, there are 3 full episodes now, with a 4th coming, each with about 2 Acts. So at 40 hours I am about 1/8th of the way in (admittedly, I like to take my time and left the game running while tending to other stuff quite a lot, but still, plenty of content!).
Episodes by the way are all included in the game, it's just their word for chapter, there is no additional DLC/expansion.

I like the story and the way the characters talk to each other. The combat is fun.

All in all this game has a lot of charm, and for me that's plenty of reason to keep playing. At 10 euros it's a very good deal imo, even if it sometimes feels a bit crude/rough around the edges (just adds to the charm).

It comes across as a game created with a lot of love and passion, and it's very well supported by the devs, and that's also a big plus imo.

EDIT: Wow, the story really opens up in Act 2 of Episode 1! :D

this is one of those games that brings back fond memories of the good old days
when games did not need to look like "Skyrim" to be fun, it needed a story and characters that kept you glued to the screen and you have to keep playing into the late hours to see what happens next

if turn based tactical with a touch of "D&D" is your thing, you should enjoy this game, and its just 10 bucks

there are some negative reviews around the graphics and sound of the game but if you check the modding section in the forums, you will find two mods that really make a change

A turn-based party RPG from one of the most active Developers on steam. Full respect for the time and effort the Trese brothers put into their games. Personally I ran into a very minor issue with the game, the dev responded instantly and a patch was out the following day. What more could I ask for? That shows a lot of passion and dedication to their product.
Constant patches/improvements, always active on the forums and actually talking to their players.

The combat system is solid with 8 different characters to choose from to make your party of 4.
The story and characters are well written and interesting including their interactions between each other.
A range of weapons, armour and other equipment can either be looted or purchased from merchants including the ever necessary consumables.
Skill/talent and stat points as you level, and easy respecing.
Personally I quite enjoy the art style in the game and zooming in the combat map the character models still look good.
I've been having a lot more fun with this game then I expected, it's definitaly worth it's asking price.
I'm looking forward to sinking a lot more time into this over the weekend.

Trese brothers are ones to watch, truly passionate game creation wizards. This game and Templar Battleforce have won my loyalty. Side note it is really worth checking out Templar Battleforce as well :)

Okay, First look, let's see what we have here.

We have.
- A low price
- Simple graphics
- Slightly clunky UI

Except for the low prise let's ignore those for now and see what else we have.

- A really good story that keeps to immersed at all times.
- Good turn based tactical combat.
- Interesting talents/skills.
- A massive game that the developers are still adding too.
- The promise of a UI revamp to bring it more inline with the PC.
- Game play that put's the big boy's in the business to shame.
- The developers don't do DLC, they do free updates.

Conclusion: If it has a Trese Brothers label on it, buy it. They may only be a small affair but the blood of great game makers flow's through their veins, and they are getting better by the day.
