Description

Hero Generations: ReGen is an innovative Roguelike / 4X Strategy game where every turn is one year of your life. You explore and build upon a procedurally generated world in search of fame and a mate to have a child with before you die. After your life ends, you take control of your child in the world you left behind, in the hope of continuing your family legacy. Each turn becomes a meaningful life decision: you can focus on building and crafting the world around you, or adventuring to far off lands to make a bigger name for yourself.

History

Definitively reimagined, Hero Generations: ReGen is the offspring of Civilization, Passage, and The Legend of Zelda.

Features

  • GENERATIONS, MATING, AND HAVING CHILDREN: Find a mate, start a family, have a child. Then take control of that child in that same world! Choosing the right mate is key, as inheritable traits (special abilities) make your child more powerful and prepared.
  • LIMITED LIFESPAN AND PERMADEATH: Each move equals one year of your hero's life. Think carefully about how you spend the hero's time. Explore the world for fame and fortune, but make sure to find a mate before it's too late!
  • EXPANSIVE OVERWORLD: Each world is procedurally generated with towns, forests, ancient ruins, heroes, and more. Discover all 6 unique Biomes (Forest, Desert, Meadow, Island, Swamp, and Volcano) through a giant overworld map.
  • 6 STRATEGIC PATHS: Choose your path to greatness. Gain victory through Strength, Love, Exploration, Wealth, Fame, or Building.
  • CITY CRAFTING SYSTEM: Construct any of 19 legacy lasting buildings next to towns to give future generations useful resources, powerful new abilities, and more attractive mates! Experiment with different combinations to craft amazing secret town cultures, like the Castle, Dark Cathedral, or Fortress!
  • MEANINGFUL: A surprising and thought-provoking experience, that explores themes of death, legacy, family, love, and more. A Gorgeous hand drawn art style creates an exciting and unique fantasy setting.
  • MASSIVE TECH TREE: Build your empire with the help of a tech tree and blueprint planner.
  • REPLAYABILITY: Tons of items, character traits, buildings, enemies, and quests, including end-game, generational events, and a giant final boss populate a procedurally generated world.
