Here we go into the final year of creating Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption. It’s been a wild and woolly “bumpercar-on-a-roller-coaster” kind of experience – a mixture of fear, terror, amazement, and great joy.
We’ve gone through a lot, these past years. We’ve made friends, worked with great people, and watched far too many of them go on to their own projects and better lives. Yet each person has left an impression upon the game. Every person who has been on the team helped to shape and improve the game. The best games are built by the synergy of the people who work on them.
The amazing part of creating this game is seeing the world of Hero University come to life. Most of the game art is done, we’re just tweaking and refining what we have in place to polish everything with glowing pride. All the pieces of the puzzle are in place, Shawn can stroll the halls of the castle, explore the wonders of the sea caves, sneak cautiously through the catacombs. The world of Sardonia awaits the explorer.
It’s a silent world right now. Anyone who has danced with Dryads knows just how magical music can be. That spell of magic has yet to be cast upon the game, but the tools of creation are now in place. We’re ready to begin the symphony of sound.
Of course, we still need a few Wizards to conduct the final ritual to bring the game together. Fortunately, when we asked for help from our friends and fans, many talented and experienced people answered our call. They, too, want to help make this game special.
Bringing this game to life has been difficult and grueling. No one wants this game to ship more than we do. However, we want it to be the best game possible, and there is still a lot of work to do. We will make this game as magical as we can.
Fortunately we have you to support us. Your faith in us and in Hero-U keeps us working, keeps us striving to do our best. The greatest of joys we have had from this project is the pleasure of knowing how important Quest for Glory was to you. That’s why we are making Hero-U. We want to share the thrill, adventure, and wonder that a great game can give.
For all of you, thank you. You keep us going.
So here’s to 2017. It’s going to be happy, heroic, and amazing.
