Heroes of Rune was originally designed for the browser platform. Although recently we have decided to explore the option of bringing the game to Steam. So we have opted to share the game as a Steam Concept first before submitting it to Greenlight.

Please check out the Alpha build of the game, playable in your browser at heroesofrune[dot]com. (*best played with Firefox browser)

Heroes of Rune is an epic new MOBA style game featuring two unique game-play modes! Join friends in the Quest (sandbox) mode, where you take on mini-quests, raid challenges, engage in fast-paced PvE, and PvP combat in a micro open-world environment. Once you are ready for more action, go head to head with other teams in the Rune Wars.

Rune Wars features a unique Capture & Defend gameplay with traditional MOBA objective of destroying the opposing team's ancient. Unlike other MOBAs, Heroes of Rune does not include lanes, towers, or auto-spawning minions. Players are given the freedom to roam the environment, hunt various monsters for experience points, collect gold, purchase upgrades anytime, and spawn minions that will follow heroes directly into combat!

Heroes of Rune rewards players with Battle Points for their achievements throughout the game. With Battle Points players unlock additional game content such as new playable characters, and skins, along with earning higher ranks on the leader-board.

  • Open-World: Game arenas are designed as "micro open-worlds". Players are free to roam the environment with no restrictions from lanes.

  • Heroes: Begin with a Knight Defender, Black Wizard, or Guardian Angel. Unlock additional characters all with unique abilities and various skins to customize their look and feel.

  • Inventory: Manage your hero's inventory, available to carry and swap loot or purchased boost items anytime during gameplay.

  • Quests: Join a sandbox gameplay session with freeroam, quests, raid challenges, fast-paced PvE, and PvP combat.

  • Rune Wars: A unique, Capture & Defend gameplay with traditional MOBA objectives. Unlike other MOBAs, players are free to roam the environment, hunt monsters for loot, purchase boost items anytime, and spawn minions that follow heroes directly into combat.

  • Battle Points: BPs are awarded for the players' progress and achievements in both gameplay modes. Battle Points are used to rank players and unlocks additional game content.

  • Leaderboard: Compete with other players for top PvP, PvE kills, or join the ranks among the best players of the game. *Ranks determined by BPs & Stats.


Heroes of Rune is currently in Open Alpha stage of development. Give it a try and share your thoughts. If you enjoy the game, please let us know if you think it should be on Steam.


We strongly believe there is more to the MOBA genre than what is currently being offered by well known titles. While some may opt to reproduce a familiar MOBA recipe. Heroes of Rune stands on it's own and strives to offer a unique MOBA experience like no other. Let's take away the traditional top down play style, predefined lanes, auto-spawning minions, towers, and stressful long-winded gameplay sessions. Let's replace all of that with a micro open-world, third person controls, and new game modes; offering players a fresh new perspective to the genre.

Today we have decided to submit Heroes of Rune to Steam Concepts for an opportunity to introduce the game to the world. We hope to reach others who can embrace our ideas, and share in the passion to make such a game a reality.

Thanks guys.... Game development has been on hold for sometime unfrotunatly due to lack or resources, and funding. With family to support, it's been tough! Although i'm open to partner developers joining the project to help the project. Until I can find the right partner, dev will be on hold.
