I spend roughly 90% of my free time watching what the YouTube algorithm provides me. I’ve not been radicalised but, though I do now check with any procuring I purchase as a “haul” and finish all my conversations by thanking Skillshare.
To my shock, the algorithm has just lately began throwing indie video games my means. Hero’s Hour is among the many most attention-grabbing it is proven me: a technique RPG wherein you assemble armies of pixelated fantasy beasts who then have automated battles.
In Hero’s Hour, you stomp round an overworld, construct your hometown and enterprise out to discover new areas. It is turn-based and leisurely. Enter right into a scrap and the battle is in real-time – however then, nonetheless considerably leisurely, as your models struggle for themselves. You amass the military by way of the overworld and place them within the struggle, however after which you can both give assault orders or simply sit again and watch a whole lot of sprites burst over each other.
The world is procedurally generated, which means the military you construct will likely be totally different every time, and there are ten factions to play as. The factions are the standard fantasy archetypes – dwarves, orcs, necromancers, lizard friends…
All the above was sufficient to prompt me to buy the game from Itch.io per week in the past for $10 (#GAMEHAUL), although I have not performed it but. (For why I have not performed it but, see earlier remark about how I spend virtually all my free time.)
I am mentioning it now as a result of, though already available for purchase by way of Itch, at present introduced the information that Hero’s Hour is headed to Steam. It is not clear what will likely be new for the Steam launch, if something, however it’ll be revealed by Goblinz and we’ll attain hero o’clock someday this winter.
