Kincaid Slices into the Scene

July 24th, 2014

Slicing into the game, Kincaid brings a new aspect to game's tactics, providing an alternative for the heavy-damage and heavy-armor Vraes.

Kincaid's strengths are in his martial prowess and his immense offensive and defensive abilities. Wielding only blades and throwing knives, Kincaid is fast, furious, and can stay standing even in the thick of group of enemies thanks to his mighty Sure Parry Talent. Among his friends, Kincaid has a unique knack for encouraging tactical coordination with his Flanking Unity Talent. He is the only character capable of hurling throwing daggers, relying on his Darting Steel Talent. Another first - Kincaid can lead your group as a Stealth character. And, his Level 18 Talent is the only melee Area of Effect Talent in the game.

Not to mention, with Kincaid now in the game, you can choose up to 16 possible group combinations.

About the 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!

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.

I backed this on kickstarter and it is a solid game. The Trese Brothers have excellent customer service and has been very pleasant to communicate with. With that being said, I had a lot more fun playing it on my android phone than I did on the PC. It reminded me a lot about the turn-based RPGs I played while growing up. The setting actually is somewhat reminiscent of Dark Sun: Shattered Lands. Obviously being a mobile port, it is not as feature heavy. I think this is a great title for those that are new to turn-based RPGs to enter into the genre. IMO buyers considering this game should grab the android version off the Google Store instead (or both to support the devs!)
