Heldric – The Legend of the Shoemaker is a new kind of game currently in development by Astralbyte. It describes itself as a hack-n-slash without loot or endless level grinding. A city builder without resource management. A game where you don’t play as an epic hero, but a humble shoemaker that must work together with villagers to defend waves of attacks. This is Heldric, a game which aims to take a different approach on the same old styles of play. You can build, upgrade, rotate and decorate the village, each building adding unique abilities to you and your fellow villagers. You must defend against wave after wave of monsters who are intent on killing everyone. Add in real physics movement and rag-dolls on death, and you have a very promising game indeed. Will you have what it takes to survive?
In Heldric – The Legend of the Shoemaker, no two play-throughs will ever be exactly the same, thanks to true random monsters, down to individual pieces of armor that all effect how they fight. No waves of the same generic look alike cloned monster. The same goes for your fellow villagers who you will work and fight alongside, with each villager having different amounts of courage and weapon knowledge.
Helric is now on Steam Greenlight, and needs your vote! If you wish to support the game and get onto steam, you can do so by voting on Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=190435209
