A semi-epic old school nostalgia rompThis game was completed on March 6th, 2009. It is currently in a stable release v1.5
This game plays like a homage to all those great RPGs I played from the time I first loaded the copy of Dragon Warrior I got with my Nintendo Power subscription to the time I wrapped Final Fantasy VI for the 4th time (I stopped playing RPGs at that time - I got an N64). So, if you liked Dragon Warrior from the NES days, or the SNES Final Fantasies, or read a lot of pulp fantasy novels like Shannara or Wheel of Time, give Hero's Realm a spin. You might like it. The only thing this game is missing is an opera scene.
While it is pretty tongue-in-cheek, it is an honest and serious effort to recapture the gameplay of the early 90s RPGs. So forgive the FFV rips and RM2k3 RTP and give it a go.
Now for the standard schpiel:
