About


The Legend of Herod

The Legend of Herod is a story-driven indie RPG for PC and Mac, where you play as a boy named Herod, who’s on a quest to find the most powerful crystal in the universe – The Tendei crystal.

But the evil Diklah Clan wants to use the crystal, to take over the world! Your mission is to stop the Diklah Clan, and get the crystal, before they do!

Dive into the exiting RPG, The Legend of Herod, where our main hero, Herod, tries to stop the evil Diklah Clans evil plans. Use your two swords, to slay every monster, that stands in your way. If you dont like swords, but are more into magic, then don’t worry! Herod currently has three spells, that you can use, to teach those bad guys a lesson!

Try the demo here!

Keep in mind, it's a demo of a pre-alpha, so there's ought to be a lot of bugs!

Not satisfied with only having two swords? Good thing that swords are collectable, and can be dropped from bosses, or found in chests. There are currently only “test-swords” in the game, but there will be added a lot more in the future!

UI (user interface)

Health;

The red bowl displays how much health you have left. If the bowl ever gets empty, Herod will die!

Energy;

The yellow bar shows how much energy Herod has. When you use melee attacks (attacks with swords), Herod loses some of his energy. Energy will regenerate itself, though. Oh yeah, and you can also spent energy on backflips!

Spells;

The three icons on the bar displays the spells. Just press the key, and the spell will be used! If you have enough mana, that is. In the future there will be added a system, where you can upgrade your spells. Unfortunately, it dosen't work yet. 

Mana;

The blue bowl displays how much mana you have left. Mana points can be spend on using spells. Just like energy, mana regenerates itself, but slower.

The enemies

Here’s a little taste of some of my favorite enemies, that are currently working.    

Trorc

The Trorc is a big, powerful beast, that hits HARD. It’s fairly easy to dodge a Trorcs attacks, since it moves very slow. The best way of beating a Trorc, is to get close to it, be quick, and finish it off, before It can do anything.

Knight

The Knight is a master of close sword combat. He likes to get close, and hit fast. He doesn’t swing his sword forever though. Eventually he will become exhausted, which gives Herod a perfect chance, to strike the Knight down. Another way of beating a Knight, is to stay in range, and shoot him down with Arcane Stars or Fire Balls!

Torad

Torads are small, but you shouldn’t underestimate them! They are easy to fight, when they are alone. But they are never alone! Torads are gregarious creatures, so you will almost always encounter them in small groups. They are quick, and hits fast, so your best bet of defeating them, would be to stay in range, and shoot Arcane Stars, since it can hit multiple targets at once.

Krath

Krath is one of the games bosses! It takes a lot to take him down, but it will be worth it!

Krath's lore

Krath was once human - just like you and me. He was a hunter, and lived in a nice, cozy house in the woods, where he hunted wild bulls. One winter, the wild bulls disappeared. Since Krath mainly survived, by hunting bulls, Krath became very hungry. He looked every day for wild bulls, but every day he returned empty handed, with an empty stomach. One day, Krath met an old man, who claimed to be a wizard. The wizard said, that he could cast a spell, which would make Krath see a bull every single day, for the rest of his days. Krath was desperate, and was willing to try anything, so he said yes to the old man’s offer. The wizard started to laugh, and then turned Krath into a monster, with a bull skull as his head, and glowing red eyes. Suddenly, Krath didn’t feel hunger anymore, but he was lost. Lost from himself, and lost from the rest of the world. Now, he follows orders from the Diklah clan, because they are the only ones, with the power of the Tendei Crystal, who would be able to bring him his old life back.

The team

We are a very small team behind The Legend of Herod, but we try our hardest to build the game. 

Gustav Lysgaard is writing the code, designing the levels, and creating almost all the ui. He is also the one writing this right now! I'm a 14 year old boy, who lives in Denmark. I got into game development when i was very young, and The Legend of Herod is my biggest project so far!

Gonza Schwindt

Music composer who lives in Berlin, Germany. Makes music for the game, including the theme:

Christina Falkenberg

Creates a lot of the art and ideas for the monsters/mobs in the game. She lives in Denmark as well. 

How is the game made?

We are developing The Legend of Herod using Unity and all the code is written in C#

We buy most of the 3d models on the Unity Assets Store, but if we can’t find exactly what we are looking for, then we create them in software’s such as Blender, Photoshop and Adobe Fuse.  

The future

We would love to add some kind of end-game content in the future. We are hoping for some kind of 1v1 battle arena, where you can play against people from all over the world. We would also love to add some kind of MOB progression battle arena, that gets harder, the more you fight. 

Why Kickstarter?

The Legend of Herod’s play style is very inspired by the early Game Cube and Nintendo 64 games. We really loved those games, and wanted to create something, that hopefully could live up to them. The Legend of Herod already looks pretty promising, but the game still needs a lot of hard work. It also needs a little help - a kick start. If this project reaches its funding goal, it would mean that we don’t need to worry about money, so that we can focus on making The Legend of Herod as good as possible!

Risks and challenges

As mentioned before, we are a very small team behind The Legend of Herod, which can cause some difficulties in terms of time and/or money. If this Kickstarter campaign gets funded, then we should be able to keep developing this game without huge problems.
We always make sure to make backups of everything, so even IF one of our computers randomly breaks down, it will not be that big of a problem.
We will do everything we can, to build this game, and we will try our hardest, with your help, to make The Legend of Herod as good as possible!
