A warrior Kabal (You) studying Judo/Tenjin Shin'yō-ryū was chosen by the elders to find Morbis and his castle. Kabals brother never returned looking for Morbis, so it's personal.

Question: Why is it cancelled if it's releasing May 12th 2023?
Answer: HBOWK was cancelled about 12 years ago in 2012 and again in 2016. It sat on a hard drive for over a decade other than a few beta test that were floating around in 2019.

Funding, internal issues and mixed code blocks caused HBOWK unable to port into newer 3D engines, rendering the end of HBOWK. We are releasing HBOWK to the public for preservation purposes instead of having multiple years of work (6) sit on a hard drive for another 12 years.

Original project stamp for Alien Cyber Coats custom Gideon/Unity framework and partly why HBOWK canned using Gideon's mixed code.

2016 The Final Update
In 2016 HBOWK underwent a big graphical update in hopes it would rekindle funding, which hopes were quickly shattered. This release is the 2012 beta framework with the final graphical update produced in 2016, it's playable from start to end credits. This game is 2008-2012 framework and has not been built upon since 2012.

Many have died looking to the blue sky trying to reach the caste. Will you be next?
