1.1.27 Release

Hello Heroes!

I want to thank everyone who has played so far. Opening weekend has been a whirl of excitement, stress, and gratitude. Thank you also for your forbearance as I deal with some of the unsuspecting bugs that crept up this weekend. The focus moving forward will be on bugfixing, some slight skill tree balancing, and then content.

Version 1.1.27 has a new "logging mode" to run the game and log any crashes that occur.

Version 1.1.27 addresses several bugs:
- |player| placeholders when players die in lava, etc should no longer appear
- Target dummies should no longer drop money when ransacked
- (Probably) fix an issue where the entire screen turns red when you encounter some elites
- Fix a crash with German localization
- Correct duration of Envenom when other players are on the same map as you
- Add a /kill command to kill your character (in the event that you get stuck somewhere)
- Heal no longer heals dead characters
- Reduce spawn rate of bosses
- Prevent all freezing with Hot Tea
- Start the player at the beach when completing the game, to not miss the prestige system.
- Mystery gems no longer crash the players when trying to upgrade

I warmly welcome your suggestions as well. Please email or join us on discord. Till next time!

1.1.26 Released - We're LIVE!

I'm pleased to report that Heroes of Umbra is now live and available for purchase TODAY!

This project has been in-progress since late 2012 (!!) and it wouldn't have seen the light of day without your interest and support. I'm excited to share it and begin to plant the seeds of a small community.

The game does not need to be played multiplayer, but as a reminder, we're hosting a few games on the discord server if you're looking for people to play with. There's also a Getting Started Wiki (Also available as a Steam guide) for your convenience.

If you run into any issues, have any feedback, or just want to chat, please do not hesitate to email or tweet @zexyu.

About This Game

Once a fabled assassin, you hunted those who jeopardized the order and balance of your home village. Now, after a blinding flash of light during a routine mission to stop a murderer who calls himself The Apprentice, you find yourself alone on a mysterious island with little recollection of the task at hand. Can you recall and complete your original mission and stop this mysterious killer before he reaches his target?

Heroes of Umbra is a 2D side-scrolling online RPG that plays similar to games like MapleStory and Diablo. You can connect and play with your friends over a network, or play the game single-player. The game features four major dungeons to test your platforming and plenty of maps, enemies, and equipment to discover.
