Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a classic 2D role-playing adventure for Windows PC and Macintosh - we may add other platforms later - by award-winning game designers Corey and Lori Cole (Quest for Glory, Castle of Dr. Brain, and more). In our genre-bending style, Hero-U combines classic RPG skills and combat with the rich character relationships of Persona, and the story and puzzles of Quest for Glory in a single challenging game experience. The game is designed to be fun and challenging for both adventure game and RPG players. We feel that both game types work best together.
A classic role-playing game with exploration, combat, and skills
Tactical combat that is much more than "hack and slash"
A rich story that changes based on the way you play
Characters with unique personalities and their own agendas
Adventure-style puzzles that are an integral part of the story
