Patch 3 Is Live

There is a new patch, primarily to fix 16:10 monitors and the Fitness ability.

Fixes include:
  • The game now supports 16:10 ratio monitors properly.
  • The Statistician achievement now works properly with 100 Fitness.
  • We've fixed some typos and improved some game text.
  • The final "endgame" combat is more challenging now, as the boss avoids all traps.
  • Occasional camera problems after combat have been fixed.

We have not yet changed the Wraith combat. It will be a much more dangerous battle in a future patch.

About This Game

After two successful Kickstarter campaigns and over five years of development, we are proud to present Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. Created by the critically acclaimed game developers Lori Ann Cole and Corey Cole (Quest for Glory, Shannara, Castle of Dr. Brain, Mixed-Up Fairy Tales), the Hero-U series follows the role-playing adventures of top students at the Hero University.

In Rogue to Redemption, Shawn O'Conner strives to become Rogue of the Year while exploring a mysterious castle, making friends and enemies, fighting deadly foes, and uncovering the secrets of his own hidden past. Meanwhile players will enjoy the rich and humorous dialogue and descriptions as they guide Shawn through his adventures.

In the tradition we created in Quest for Glory and in Shannara, Hero-U is a hybrid adventure/role-playing game. During the day, Shawn attends classes at the University, practices his skills, and tries to make friends with other students. At night, it's time to pull out weapons, armor, and traps to explore the abandoned wine cellars, stunning sea caves, creepy catacombs, and deadly dungeon beneath Hero-U. Most combat is optional for those who prefer a pure adventure game, but there are ample rewards for those who choose to valorously fight the creatures that threaten the school and all of Sardonia.
