Heart of Runes is a fascinating mine-sweeping game with spectacular RPG elements. Your goal is to collect magic runes in the course of mind-sweeping in order to defeat monsters. Among the three different elements of runes, any combination of two will result in a variety of magic spells to be cast. Runes that are more properly combined will raise your speed in defeating the monsters. Once they are defeated, you will be rewarded with a certain amount of Soul Pieces. Served as money, Soul Pieces could be spent on game props and trainings in order to power up yourself for the increasingly challenging stages to come.

A group of underground Mother Octopuses has brought along their followers and come to occupy the habitats of the Elves.The monsters polluted the beautiful forest, and the Elves are losing the battle. In the meantime, a few clumsy apprentices happen to blow up an old mage's pool of element runes. In order to earn money to rebuild the pool, the poor Old Mage has no choice but to take up the job of cleaning up the forest.

Key features:
1. Unique runes combination gameplay. Different runes combinations produce different magic effects. No matter you are a player seeking higher damaging quality or a sense of control, there will be a gameplay style that fit your preference.
2. Memory Pieces collecting. With higher levels unlocked, the past of the Old Mage will gradually be revealed. Players are going to learn about why he set out to be a mage, what he had been through, and both happy and sad memories of his.
3. Online rank system. Top 10 players will be displayed on the rank list.
4. Abundant choices of game props. The Crafting system (Shop) has got more than 20 items for players to shop for. Each item has its own unique functions which are anticipating players to find out.


1. How many difficulty levels or stages are there?
Technically speaking, there can be a unlimited number of difficulty levels or stages. You are most welcome to aim at setting a new record by challenging your hand speed and brain.

2. What is estimated price?
We hope that most people can easily afford and play the game. Price shouldn’t be an obstacle. So the price will be between $1 to $2.

3. What languages are provided?
We build the game in three languages: English, Chinese, and Spanish. In future, We are likely to add more languages to meet players’ requirements.

4. Are there any in-game purchases?
No, and we promise that we will never implement any in-game purchases in any of our games.

5. Does the game support Mac OS?
Yes, it supports Mac OS.

6. When will the game be officially published on Steam?
It depends on how long it takes for the game to be approved by Greenlight. If everything goes smoothly, we hope our game could be published by June or July 2017.

In future updates, we will continually enrich the storyline by adding more Memory Pieces of the Old Mage. We look forward to and deeply appreciate your feedback and advice, for which constantly keep our inspiration alive and help us enhance your game experience.

Hey Drawntrailgames
I added you since, I would like to translate your game into Danish.
I am willing to do it for a very low price or free, depending on how big of a project it is.
I just finished a translation for Trojan inc. and are about to translate three more games.
Feel free to add me (I'm only translating text)
