Heroes & Heretics is set in a world where earth’s many mythologies are a reality, players choose to represent a Deity and Faction, to do battle with one another and declare their faith supreme. At its core, the game is a multiplayer battle between 2 players; each builds structures – which in turn may create units to form an army – and seeks to capture key points across a map.
Best Student Game:
The multitude of strategic choices already available within a single faction is part of what gives Heroes & Heretics its replay value. Do you train Militia for their ability to stun opponents? Or perhaps Knights for their armor-increasing aura? Maybe your opponent is ahead in Shrines, and cannons are the right choice for their ability to decimate structures? Add to this questions like which structure to build at what time, as each offers key units and upgrades, as well as which Deity skills to emphasize, and there are plenty of options to consider while battling your opponent. Care has been taken to prevent dominant strategies from arising, while still offering a large pool of options.
Of course, beyond all this, the 'fun' in a game can only be attested to by new players, and we have received very positive testimony from those who played our game during the expositional events at NHTV, as well as the recent industry showcase. After a first game, many immediately demanded a re-match, caught up in the exhileration found both when victorious and when defeated.
