Herogues has been Greenlit!
You found out that a small town in Kara's Vale called Lanecrost has come under attack at night. There have been strange sightings of creatures stirring in the shadows. Shortly after your arrival, you realised the source wasn't inside the town but instead in the catacombs below.

Delve into the dungeon!

Draw your weapon and bring some light! Squash giant rats and smash goblin scum! For glory and fame! However, perhaps you just want the riches.

Herogues is a roguelike that follows a traditional path of a turn-based adventure, but it feels like an action rpg when played. It combines old-school and modern styles for a unique experience. Every playthrough is different as the dungeons and items are procedurally generated.

You play as a hero who takes it upon themselves to delve into a dungeon near a tiny town. Your quest is to protect the town and find out what or who is causing this darkness to seep into the light. There are hundreds of items to help you in your quest, you just have to find them. Also, you want the gold.

  • Procedurally generated dungeons
  • Several different types of dungeons
  • Procedurally generated items
  • Randomized potions
  • Treasure chests
  • Traps
  • 21 different spells (more to come)
  • Scrolls
  • Passive skills
  • Melee and ranged weapons
  • Mini bosses
  • Magical, rare, epic, and Legendary monsters
  • Food
  • Drink
  • Randomized quests
  • Friendly town
  • Merchant
