Update #110: 3 and 4 AP Spells



This week's update focuses on improving a set of the 3 or 4 AP attack spells in the game. Specifically, Kyera's Holy Retribution, Kjartan's Firestorm and Immolation and finally Vincent's Energy Storm. Retribution's damage structure has been completely rebalanced for the better, and you'll find that it can finally deliver the punch that it deserves. Firestorm gains Critical % of its own at high levels and Immolation and Energy Storm have now packed a little extra Critical Dmg %. These changes are coming out of fine tuning to the Talent balancing equations that give a bit more recognition to how much AP is being spent for an ability.

As a non-spell outlier, Vraes' Ferocity also gained increased Critical Dmg % across all 10 levels, pumping up the combo between Ferocity and Berserk Rage.

We've found the possible root cause of the issues with the Orcin in Episode 4 and fixed it which should snap their balancing back into the fun-zone.

Finally, with @drdave's, we've resolved an issue that was preventing an important Laranda conversation from appearing.

v4.5.11 - 4/24/2018
- Boosted and fixed Holy Retribution damage progression
- Added +Critical % to high level Firestorm
- Added +Critical Dmg % to Ferocity across all 10 levels
- Added +Critical Dmg % to Energy Storm and Immolation across all 10 levels
- Further nerfed Episode 4 Orcin
- Fixed story bug preventing some Laranda conversations after passing through City of the Dead

Update #109: Boost-In Improved



This weekend we have a quick update for Heroes of Steel. Update #108 increases the number of Bloodstones for groups that Boost-In to Episode 2 up to 20. This is a competitive number versus playing through the Episode, but below the perfect count if you got them all. Also, to help with that we've added another 5 Bloodstones across Episode 1. The continued response to the fun and new strategies offered by the crafting system has been overwhelming, so thanks to all of our players.

We've also ported back some bug fixes, crash fixes and closed some memory bugs based on the work we are doing for Star Traders: Frontiers, our latest game.

v4.5.9 - 4/13/2018
- Boost-In to Episode 2 now starts with 20 Bloodstones
- Added 5 new Bloodstones across Episode 1
- Additional fixes for memory bugs

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.
