Heroes of Dire on Steam!

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

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)

“I'm open to all suggestions on what can be changed, and will continue to work on Dire. Many of the mechanics you guys pinpoint as problems were suggested and designed by players (including some people in this thread), and often in the name of "protecting weak players" and "protecting weak guilds". That's a big reason why PvP sucks in Dire: The desire to "protect" weakness instead of rewarding skill. There's not enough incentives and too many negatives for engagement. I prefer much more brutal and hardcore mechanics, but the idea here was to cater to solo and casual gamers more. It's not a complete wash, however, and I'd be happy to re-build whatever systems aren't working. My time split between Dire and The Infinite Black Expansion will be 25% / 75% for the next few weeks, so progress will be slower, but I will be working on whatever suggestions you guys come up with here.”
