9. The Hero-ewe turned out to be a ram and boy, do we look sheepish.
8. The artists ran out of blue pixels.
7. We received a court order to change the Hero-U name because it was deemed to be too confusingly similar to the Wii-U.
Therefore from this point onward, Hiiro-U will only be available on Nintendo gaming machines.
6. The Kwirks demanded green M&Ms in every room.
5. The entire team got sick after eating spinach dip at the company party.
4. Dr. von Braun blew up the science lab tower… again.
3. The company treasurer absconded with the funds and ran off to Daventry – It’s a magical place.
2. One of the programmers caught a code.
And the Number One reason that Hero-U has been delayed:
Someone forgot to tell the designers that this was supposed to be a small Indie game.
Several members of the Hero-U cast have ties to Eire and will gladly raise a glass to her beauteous shores.
Our Roguish hero, Shawn O’Conner, was born on Sardonia, but his parents both hailed from the Emerald Isle. As a result, Shawn has a slight lilt to his voice and a definite gift for blarney.
Our Paladin instructor and healer, Moira Glenshannon, has a deep love for the land she once called home. Alas, duty called her away to serve and preserve life on the shores of a very different island. At this time of year, she often thinks back about what her life would be if she had stayed in Eire. As dear to her heart as Eire may be, she knows she made the right choice to be a part of the Hero University.
We hope that you feel the same way as Moira does – proud to be a part of Hero-U.
We want to thank all of you for supporting Hero-U. Now that we’ve revised this website, we’ve had several orders of collectibles and game pre-orders. We’ve also had some very nice donations. We really are lucky to have fans like you to help bring Hero-U to life.
We’ve updated our webpages and made it much easier for you to pre-order Rogue to Redemption and buy our Kickstarter booty (while our supplies last).
We don’t want people to be left bereft of a cuddly Meep to keep for their very own. Who doesn’t want a fuzzy friend to wear their Hero-U cap for them or stand on their Meep key chain so that you never lose your keys?
Besides, there are 400 Meeps stuck away in our garage who really need good homes.
The new website has a few reveals of some of the concept art you haven’t seen yet. We want to tickle you with tempting treats so that you can’t wait to see what’s coming up next.
We’ve been filling out the castle, decorating the halls, and creating the combat system for the past months. Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption will be a game rich in detail and design layers. It’s the sort of game you will want to play again and again to discover new events and interactions. Don’t worry – it will be worth all the love and work we put into it.
We made it through a full year of Hero-U – Hurrah! We solved a lot of problems, created a great game system, came up with some beautiful artwork, and we’re putting the pieces together. There is a lot to do this year, but we’re on our way.
In case you missed it, here’s the Christmas Video we made to show off JP Selwood’s beautiful room sketches and to wish you all a fun holiday season. Yes, those backgrounds are only sample drawings. As lovely as they are, the final game art will be better.
So, in addition to the brand new game we’re bringing out later this year, we have a lot of new things to share with you.
First of all, a brand new Shawn O’Conner in 3D!
Shawn will actually change his expression once in a while!
