A Section of the Catacombs

The Catacombs is a huge underground complex where for centuries the dead of Sardonia have been entombed. Once a final resting place for heroes, now the Catacombs is filled with the restless Undead. Only the bravest of explorers or the most foolhardy of tomb raiders dare enter this realm of death.

In the modern world, the Catacombs of Paris are underground warehouses for the storage of bones. In medieval times as cities expanded, old cemeteries were dug up and the bones were stacked in abandoned limestone mining tunnels. These are estimated to hold the remains of six million people. The catacombs of Hero-U are a cross between an ossuary and an underground graveyard. There are tombs, sarcophagi, and crypts throughout the Sardonian Catacombs.

Bring out Your Dead

While Hero-U is an adventure rich with character interactions and story, it is also a turn-based combat role-playing game. The Catacombs provide an eerie setting for exploration and unravelling of mysteries as well as an opportunity to test Shawn’s wits, skills, and equipment against the creatures that defy death.

Slaying the dead is risky business.

But the Catacombs isn’t just a place of doom and gloom. Amidst the blood-craving revenants and the hateful wraiths, there are the ghosts of the heroes.

Memento Mori

School Spirits

School Spirits

In our original Kickstarter, we offered School Spirits and tombstones as reward add-ons. This means they will have epitaphs on tombs and perhaps a free-roaming vapor haunting the Catacombs and the school.

Twenty-six people wanted to be ghosts in the game. Another 28 wanted to have tombstones. This meant we needed to have an extensive Catacomb to contain them all.

The Catacombs consists of twelve different areas to explore, including one major Boss Monster, a Monster Lair, and the Thieves’ Guild Fence. There’s a lot of exploration and excitement buried here.

We’re currently creating the Catacombs, transforming the lush concept art into a 3D environment. Ghosts, ghouls, epitaphs, and Undead have to be carefully arranged to create this moody and dangerous region of the game.

There are secrets as well as dangers hidden in the shadows of the Catacombs. Will Shawn be able to explore and uncover the treasures of lore and wealth without sharing the fate of the catacombs residents? Only you can determine Shawn’s fate when you play Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption.
