Hero-U Update #107: Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption



Halloween Sales!

In honor of the Nights of the Dead, Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is on a 3-day sale on Steam at 40% off! https://store.steampowered.com/app/375440/HeroU_Rogue_to_Redemption/.

There is also one week left in the 35% off sale on gog.com (https://www.gog.com/game/herou_rogue_to_redemption). We’re trying to support both sites equally, but the rules and processes sometimes makes them a little different.

This is a perfect time for your friends to get a copy of the game on either site, or for you to pick up some unique Christmas gifts for your family and friends. It’s an equally good time to mention the game and the current sales on social media. 🙂

Halloween at Hero-U

Noctes de Mortuis – Nights of the Dead – are an important Fall event at Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. They are a time when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead becomes stretched thin. With the proper preparation, communication with the dead becomes possible at this time of year.

Halloween has always been one of our favorite holidays. What’s not to like about creepy decorations, people in costumes, and candy? This year Lori and Corey will celebrate with a live stream on the Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption channel on YouTube. We’re still setting it up, but what could possibly go wrong? 🙂 Oct. 31 from 1 pm PDT until probably 1 am on Nov. 1.

The channel is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfcyQnbZEKMxYd9VCy1Px0A. We also have some Hero-U video teasers and trailers there.

The event will include a “slow play” of Rogue to Redemption – looking at all the jokes and clues in the first room or two. We’ll also have Quest for Glory and Hero-U trivia quizzes, giveaways, “ask us anything,” and much more!

Check and Update your shipping address on BackerKit!

We’ve begun shipping physical rewards promised in the Kickstarter. If you’re expecting anything, please visit https://hero-u-adventure-role-playing-game.backerkit.com/backer/shipping right now and make sure we have your correct shipping address.

If it’s wrong, make it right! We hate having $10 – $50 worth of postage wasted because of a wrong address. (Hint: The shipper will contact you, and you will be responsible for paying the postage on the re-shipment. Nobody wants that to happen.)

We’ve shipped the Wanted Posters. The custom paintings are printed and going out soon. Poster prints are next. We’re shipping these items separately because they’re the wrong shape to go out with a game box.

We’re finalizing the contents of the DVD in the boxed games. They will go out in late November to early December along with patches, lucky coins, keychains, and such.

The Yearbook is still delayed, and will probably go out in the Spring. We’re working on a Hint book and strategy guide. It won’t make it onto the boxed game DVDs, but when it’s ready, we’ll put it up on BackerKit for people who ordered it.

We’ll also offer a DLC pack for sale on Steam and GoG; it will contain the soundtrack, hint book, art book, and bestiary.

Thank you for helping to make Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption a reality! Keep talking about the game on social media so that more adventurers and role-playing gamers can find us.

The Tawmis Video – from the SierraChest.com 10 Year Anniversary!

Rudy, who runs SierraChest.com wanted to make a video with several submissions – and was kind enough to ask me to be a part of it. My original video was 21 minutes long – the next one I did was 14 minutes long – the next one I did was just over 7 minutes long – and that’s the one Rudy used. He asked if he could trim it and I explained, it’s all his to do with as he pleases! He used a majority of the footage, but since his has been out for several days, I figured I would release the uncut version of the slightly over 7 minute version.

SierraChest – 10 Year Celebration!

Rudy wrote: Greetings!

Today the Sierra Chest celebrates its 10th anniversary and for this occasion I created a little show with lots and lots of guests from Sierra and Dynamix, as well as Sierra fans and creators of other fan sites.

A big thank you for the guests on the show! I won’t tag them yet, cause that would ruin the surprise for the viewers.

Hope you like it.


PS: Yes, I know it’s a little earlier than announced, but why wait!
