Heroes Must Die

Heroic Games

Heroes Must Die by Heroic Games combines an indie video game RPG and an interactive theater production.

Post PAX

Wow, thanks to everyone who made PAX South 2016 an amazing time for the Heroic Games crew. There was a lot of indie love there and our booth was never empty. We had compliments on everything - story, humor, art, music - and especially the unique combat system. People really responded to our theatrical component as well and I feel we will have many more attendees for the show. THANKS EVERYONE!

It was also a huge beta testing opportunity for us. Watching hundreds of people play gave us intense feedback on some UI and input changes we need to make and the final release will be much better thanks to the con. 

I thought hex grids meant it was an easy game.

Heroic Highlights

Here are some amazing moments:

Heroes and Dragons

Mike Laidlaw stopped by, played the game, and gave one on one feedback. Amazing to have a pro like that give so much help to indies. I allowed myself five seconds to nerd out over Dragon Age and take this photo.

"It's Mike Laidlaw!" "I'm Mike Laidlaw!"

"It's Mike Laidlaw!" "I'm Mike Laidlaw!"

Mr. President

Robert Khoo met with me and the city leaders I gathered to ensure San Antonio represents well at PAX South in years to come and makes it the best it can be on all local fronts.

It's 80 degrees and sunny. He's from Seattle. No wonder he wants PAX to stay here!

Reviews

Some great write-ups, too.

Touch Arcade loved the show ideas and called us a REAL GAME. Yeah! Hex grids!!

DVS Gaming liked our fun gameplay. But trying too hard to be funny?! My mom always said I was supposed to try hard. She'll be so sad. 

Then again they put us in the top 5 and called us comedy gold! Woo! Thanks guys!

The End?

No, just the beginning! The game is out full in March, the show is in April, and if all goes well we bring Heroes Must Die the game and SHOW to PAX South next year.


We're feeling loved in the Alamo City. Thank you PAX. And thank you to the only fan who beat the entire combat demo. Lord Murder ascends thee.

This is the face of pure evil. Honestly they look really happy.
