Lead four heroes and their teams against the evil forces of Mephistocles, the Lord of Demons in this retro-RPG adventure.  Toggle between the four heroes as you explore dungeons, ascend towers, spelunk caves, save villages and defeat the forces of evil!  Reminiscent of classic RPGs such as Dragon Quest III and Final Fantasy V, Hero's Realm is a fun romp in old-school RPG nostalgia.

Highlights: 
-22 character classes (12 base classes, 4 hero classes, 3 secret classes, 3 master classes) 
-TONS of game content and sidequests 
-Classic NES-era and SNES-era RPG gameplay  
-Great music
-Multi-party switching system (like Kefka's Tower in FFVI!) 
-Multi-party tactical battles (at least 5 of them!) 
-Massive world map 
-Fun 

The story is split into 5 chapters, with each of the first four chapters focusing on a new hero, and the 5th chapter bringing them all together. 

Chapter 1: Won't Somebody Please Think of the Children? 
Chapter 2: There is Something Fishy Going on... 
Chapter 3: Land of the Rising Son 
Chapter 4: True Calling 
Chapter 5: The War on Terror

I'm watching your First 10 mins video and I must say I'm quite impressed and inspired. I am an avid fan of indie RPG development and a classically-trained music composer; I'm curious to know who is the composer of the wonderful soundtrack. I ask, because I have not heard this music anywhere else, and it doesn't sound like it is from the RTP.

If only I kept better track of the sources of my music! As you might be able to tell, some of the tracks are MIDI versions of actual RPG game music (for example, from Chrono Cross and Dragon Warrior IV). Some of the original work was done by Bjorn Lynne, others by Aaron Walz, and Curtis Schweitzer (though Bjorn was the only one I got a hold of via email regarding this project). There are many more that I've forgotten and not documented. I even have some BeeGees, Frank Zappa, and The Price is Right theme song in there!

So far, so good. One of the best I've played. (Would be THE BEST, but as I tab a lot, having to play in full-screen drags it from the pedestal.)

Alt+Enter should toggle fullscreen/windowed mode. Also there is a key combo that changes between native resolution and 2x, but I can't remember what it is (F4?). Thanks!

It is now the best RPG Maker game I've played, but there are always nits to pick. Most major one I can cite now is I have no idea how to make it open in windowed mode when first run as opposed to full-screen. And considering that is a 1% nit, and most of the others are much smaller then that (.5 being the next hiest, most being .01 or .001 percent)... It's fabulous (I've already rated it 5 stars, even when the first comment went up.)

By far the best indie RPG on the planet.
By the way,they are all good.
Because of the elements and length of the game I rate it #1
So far only one other comes close(for me)

There are no words to describe how good this game is. I'd recommend this to my friends if they were in to this kind of game ; - ;

just had to post a quick comment here. Even though I haven't played much of the game what I have played I have enjoyed very much. I am amazed as always by what kentona has created in this game. IMO he is an amazing RPG maker.

I have ran into a problem that I had not had previously where none of my cancel buttons, (esc and X) work at all. I do not know why this is or how it happened, but when I returned to the game I found it to be incredibly laggy during battle sequences, and I could not cancel any actions nor could I access the menu any more. Is there a fix for this problem?

Actually, Ive never heard of this problem! Does it always happen? Can you try it on a different PC? Have you tried rebooting? I am just throwing ideas out there, because I don't know what could be causing that.

i love this game so far, but i have one thing that was kinda odd (i'm getting use to it) but the walking speed is pretty fast and took some time to get use to it. Also, in the AMAZING FUNHOUSE if you go down the left staircase and talk to the guy with the wings next to him, he says he will give you a warp wing for two different tokens, then he says would you like to trade your token+token for my "Warp Whistle".
A little mistake :P

Welp! Also, sometimes the walking speed loses it's mind and you end up superfast or superslow. Press '5' to reset it!

This is due to a mapping error I introduced in v1.4. In v1.5 this was fixed, but you can just download the fix and overwrite the bad mapfile with this.

Let me know if this works for you!

Umm... You're going to have to be more specific. I am not sure what issue you are running into. If nothing else, send me an email or upload and post a link with your savefile and I can take a look.

The game itself was well done and interesting, and had hours of gameplay. But for me, the blinding similarities to NES and Genisis titles (from which you no doubt draw inspiriation from) left a bad taste in my mouth.

You have talent in making mechanically sound and well polished games, but the sheer lack of anything truly original or exciting really killed it for me on this one. You have creativity somewhere in you, rather than bottling it up, you should let it shine!

If I really had wanted to replay Shining Force, Fire Emblem, Zelda, and Phantasy Star, I could have sat back with the original titles I feel. But at least with your game I kinda get to play them all at once.

I've never actually played Shining Force, Fire Emblem, or Phantasy Star. I recognize the names, but I have never played nor seen them played. I played a bit of Zelda II and LttP, but the only Zelda I've played for more than 15 mins has been OoT (and it left me a little underwhelmed). I've never owned a Genesis.

Like I mention elsewhere for this game (like it's main page at rpgmaker.net - I should update this one here at GJ), "I always wanted to make that game based on everything I enjoyed as a kid. This is the end result." I didn't set out to make something "original" (lol what is originality, anyway?) but something reminiscent of my childhood favorites.

Thanks for playing and taking the time to comment! And thanks for the compliment!
