About

Rogue Heroes is a coop action rpg in pixel art inspired by 16-bit classics like LttP and Harvest Moon while adding modern features and design. Rogue Heroes is far along in development towards the early access release coming shortly on PC. With your help we can finish out the PC version to 1.0 and release on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.

Rogue Heroes features classic top down sword slashing combat with a large set of tools, spells, and weapons at your disposal. Fight through 6+ dungeons each with their own style, room layouts and unique dangers.

Dungeons are procedurally generated to connect handmade rooms and mix up the layout so no two runs are the same. Keys, puzzles, and traps are mixed up, even within the same rooms things won't always play out the same way. Combining randomization with hand placement gives replayability without the drawbacks of uninteresting design that can come from full random generation.  

Battle with your friends to fight enemies, grab gems, solve puzzles, and take down dungeon bosses.

Play in solo or in coop with up to 4 players through the entire campaign beginning to end. Build up your village into a bustling community, take down the dungeons that threaten the outer areas and collect tools to open up your world. Max out your Hero and take them into the infinite dungeon to see how they stack up against a never-ending onslaught of enemies, traps, and puzzles.  

Build up your village from a dusty trail in the woods to a bustling community. You choose what to build and where to build it.

Key Features

  • Full 4 player coop throughout the entire main campaign  
  • Procedurally generated dungeon layouts, puzzles, traps, key and enemy placement gives you an endless amount of dungeons.  
  • Build your village, start with a dirt road in the woods and build it up all the way into a bustling community full of NPC’s with their own quests, shops, and side activities.  
  • Persistent upgrades, all the gems earned in the dungeon are used to build your village, upgrade your character and their equipment permanently after each death. Going back in the dungeon forfeits your remaining gems.  
  • Many classes are available with their own balance of speed, resilience, and combat abilities. Each class has their own unique skill like the Witch classes broom riding.  
  • Farm, Fish, and Explore. There’s many things to do and improve outside of the dungeons both in town and the overworld  
  • Large overworld full of many environments hiding secret dungeons, items, and equipment. Explore the ruins in the jungle, the snowy peaks of the north, or kick back on the beach out west.

Rogue Heroes as a prototype with a 16 bit infinite dungeon started with a small winter project in 2015. In October 2016 full development started and we’ve been working on it full time ever since. We have the first few dungeon types finished, 6 classes, 28 enemy types, 12 types of equipment/tools, around half of the overworld as well as the village building and its side activities like fishing and farming. We plan to enter early access soon with one more full dungeon complete and several more enemies and class types. We hope to continue expanding those numbers while finishing out the dungeons. We have many more features planned to add on to the game like the Infinite Dungeon and Daily Dungeons where you compete to get farther than anyone else. We need your support to help see those last two made into reality.

Follow the development of Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos on Twitter and our Website at RogueHeroGame.com We post gifs, screenshots, and updates there regularly as we work on new features and polish the game for release.

Rogue Heroes has been in full time development for almost 2 years and we need your help to bring it to the finish line. With the help of your funding we can hire a composer to make a great original soundtrack as well as get the tools and kits necessary to start working on porting the game to as many places as possible.

Thanks for checking out the page and reading about the project we’ve been pouring ourselves into for the past two years. Any support given is greatly appreciated for being directly responsible for helping make Rogue Heroes the best game it can be. We’re strengthened by a passionate community and we leap at the chance to work with people equally excited about the idea and helping shape the game to its best possible result.

Risks and challenges

Having released 2 previous titles to Steam we’re confident in our ability to ship a complete and polished product. With the game less than a year away from Early Access release we’ve already tackled the major hurdles to overcome in order to see a game of this scope to completion. With your help we’ll have the necessary support to bring Rogue Heroes to full completion to as many places as possible as fast as possible with the best possible composition.
