Pixelmage Games have announced a new game titled Hero’s Song. CEO and former Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley (@j_smedley on twitter) announced the game’s Kickstarter earlier today. Smedley confirmed in a tweet that Hero’s Song is coming to PC on Steam first and then Mac and consoles at a later date. The game is being developed by a team of seasoned, veteran developers who have worked on such notable titles as H1Z1, DC Universe, Planetside 2 and many more. Hero’s Song features many deep, rich backstories that are being written by New York Time’s best selling fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss, who wrote the critically acclaimed The Kingkiller Chronicles. There is no release date given for Hero’s Song but its Kickstarter is off to a good start having almost $30,000 raised in the first hours.
The game is described on its website as “an open world rogue like fantasy game done in beautiful 2D art style.” The game will feature a world whose backstory changes each time you play based on the gods you select to rule the world. The characters, terrain and enemies will all change to suit the world those gods built. The gods you choose also effect the world’s history. The game is also features an online component which will have servers that can host hundreds of players at once. Hero’s Song also features several different races and over a dozen classes for you to customize your character.
