Lute Hero is an rpg/rhythm game with a focus on Medieval and Renaissance music, combining the two classic genres of rhythm and turn-based role playing.
Your adventure begins in Luthar, a nation with a music-centric society in which a Hero’s greatest calling is that of performance! Travelling from dusted tavern firesides to gilded palace halls, building your fame and riches, will you become the next Lute Hero?
The string is mightier than the sword!
Combat is in a classic turn-based format and involves playing solos that have different effects on your enemies, from piercing damage to a deep slumber.
At the core of Lute Hero is an RPG, your individual skill and the quality of your musical gear will earn you adoration. Adoration affects the size of the crowds you draw and in turn the gold you earn.
Customise your Bard and upgrade your equipment, with gold from playing in front of large crowds or from the spoils of fallen enemies!
Explore the nation of Luthar, traveling and playing, cultivating your fame and riches. Rise from a penniless minstrel to the Bard of Legends!

Risks and challenges
The main risk of course comes from a relatively low budget. While this is supplemented with my own savings and will cover all development costs, any large surprise costs will delay the game's release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
