Heroes of Dire on Steam!

Our new game Heroes of Dire will be live on the Steam game platform tomorrow!
(Wednesday March 15th, 2017)

The most up-to-date client download links for all platforms can be found at:

https://www.DIRE.com

We're proud of the new game, and appreciate our existing player's patience with us as we've been working hard to finish it. Tomorrow is a very exciting day for us -- As many of you know, we're a small team with just a few people, and the fate of our little company hinges on the success of Heroes of Dire. This is a make-or-break moment and we're hoping everything goes well.

As a way of saying thanks, all new and existing Dire players will receive a free limited Huppo Warrior fighter!

The Huppo are a fierce race of hippopotamus people designed by some kickstarter backers. This is a valuable special character that won't be available to players after the Steam promotion ends.

You don't have to do anything to get the Huppo fighter -- Just log in and try playing the game starting tomorrow evening!

(Kickstarter backers will also receive a second bonus Huppo, as promised)
