What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“"A Hero's Rest" is a robust management sim created by two developers. While most of the core game mechanics are ready, we want to make sure we shape the final parts of the game in the direction that our community would like the game to be. Thus early access is the perfect way to grow and connect with our community and receive critical feedback on new features before they are set in stone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the full version of "A Hero's Rest" in 2024, but this timeframe may be subject to change based on player feedback and the additional content we decide to include. We will keep you updated as we progress through the early access milestones.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Once the game is finished, we hope to provide the complete experience of running a fantasy town the way we envision it. It will bring the player more events, more challenges to master, more items to craft, and new locations. All while immersing the player in an atmospheric world of fantasy and Heroes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“"A Hero's Rest" is still under development, which means bugs or corrupted saves may still happen. With that said, the game is well in a solid play state, the current version of the game allows the player to run his town with all the shops & features needed to do so:

  • 7 Different Workstations to build in your shops.
  • 16 Crafting Categories with 4 Tier levels each to equip and customize your Heroes.
  • 14 Different Quest Objectives, separated into 2 categories, each with its own progression and 10 powerful bosses to defeat.
  • In-Game Milestones to track and achieve during each one of your runs.
  • With each town, your decisions will shape how your game will turn out. Whether you start with a Smith or a Tailor as your first station, no two runs will ever be the same.
  • Independent Heroes that run a routine of adventuring and enjoying your town's shops, from training to sitting in the Inn to have a drink.
  • An array of items to fill your shops, from decorations to shop upgrades, you can let your imagination go wild.
  • A Dynamic Weather system with blizzards & storms, alongside the season system, your town will flow through the colours of nature as it would in any real world.
  • Various events that will force you to go out of your way to protect your town and keep your reputation levels high.
  • Four different handcrafted landscapes for you to develop your town strategy, changing how the game feels and plays.
  • Over 50 Steam achievements.

And much more...”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Being such a small team, our imagination and passion were all we had to bring this game to the point it's on. We hope that with the help of our community, we will find new and attractive features to add to the game and bring a final product that everyone will be happy to play.

We will regularly monitor our community forums and will be available in our official discord to address any potential new ideas and other feedback.”

Early Access - Roadmap

About This Game

In a world abounding with monsters, His Majesty The King tasks you with warding off the threats that surround the land. For this, you are given the role of the proprietor of a fantasy town where you will recruit Heroes, manage your resources and supply your shops with the wares that your Heroes need for their adventures.

A Hero's Rest will put your management skills to the test as you fight to grow your town's popularity while tending to your Heroes' needs & His Majesty's demands.

  • Unleash your creativity and build your shops across multiple landscapes, from cosy little Taverns to huge Training Grounds, the choice is yours.
  • Each shop brings a boon to your town, providing you with new ways to gather resources or interact with your Heroes' fates.
  • Supply your shops with the necessary upgrades and decorations to push your town's popularity to new heights.

  • Craft gear across 13 (and soon 16) different categories and thousands of customization options.
  • Level up your crafting stations and provide higher quality gear for your Heroes.
  • Display your crafted gear across your shop's various displays and watch your Heroes wear the equipment they purchased.

Heroes have a mind of their own and little regard for their safety. You'll need to make sure to send Heroes on quests that they can conquer or they will find their demise.

  • Send the Heroes on quests to gather resources for you to overcome the dangers that threaten your town.
  • Watch them grow from inexperienced adventurers to powerful Heroes and create a personal attachment to those that stand out.
  • Use the tools provided to you by shops like the Innkeeper & the Apothecary to influence the fate of your Heroes and secure their safety.

    The Land of Felonia needs you, what are you waiting for!
