Almost a Hero - by Bee Square

Quote:
Almost A Hero is an RPG clicker game where the most useless idiots embark on a quest to be slightly less useless idiots.

Nine deeply unique and deeply flawed individuals have been chosen for greatness. Heroic, noble, enlightened... Just 3 of the many words they cant spell. They will set off on an epic journey that will turn them from zeroes to almost heroes. Or dead people. More likely the latter.

Join these zeroes on a quest to become heroes in an ancient land. Train them to learn battle skills, magical powers and which end of a sword is the business end.

In AaH youll find quests, secrets to unlock and there's lots of clicking to do. Yup, its a clicker game. Have nearly got what it takes to become almost a hero?
Hey guys. We are planning to release Almost a Hero on 2nd of March. (I will update in here if that changes.)
We've been working on this project for a while and the feedback from testers had been great so far. If you want to get your hands on it, please send me a message with your itunes (for testflight) or google play e-mail.

Here's our w.i.p. teaser & an older version of gameplay. Enjoy

I'd like to share more details about the characters we have in the game.

We put a lot of effort to bring the characters to life even if we didn't use all these context in the game. Makes us happier.

VEXX

Vexx is a forest girl from the Arboreal Cloak. Shes calm when shes alone with trees, but is useless around people, elves, arfs and any other living thing. This is when her anger management problems manifest. She takes almost everything as a personal insult until she thinks it through. Shes quite a scary person to be around, especially with her huge hammer Sid. Vexx would rather confront you than get to know you, so this makes life for Hilt very difficult especially as he falls head over heels in love with her.
Even when he eventually confesses his love for her she thinks its a trap and beats him up.





Vexx is very quick tempered. Shed rather fight you than get to know you it compensates her shyness. She has a big hammer too, called Sid.






Ultimate - By slamming the hammer to the ground several times in a row, deals huge damage to all enemies.





Active 1 - Gains increased attack speed for a small duration.






Active 2 - Concentrates next attack to jump and devastate enemies with Sid.

BELLYLARF

Practical jokes need to be funny and harmless two things Bellylarf cant grasp. Doing a wee in the village well or setting fire to the corn supplies isnt funny, but he still does that sort of thing.

Bellylarf once hid in a barrel for 3 years for a joke. The people of Foliax his home village - said it was the happiest time of their lives. Then Bellylarf got so big he broke the barrel and his awful pranking started again. So when the crusade to save the world from Gog came about Bellylarf was volunteered by the villagers to be a hero. Hopefully he wont make it back.



Bellylarf is THE most annoying person ever. He thinks hes funny, but isnt. Belting you over the head with a leg of beef is high comedy to him.





Ultimate - Gets angry for no reason, doubling his health, damage & speed for several seconds.






Active 1 - Gains a protective shield & taunts all the enemies to hit him instead of his allies for some time.






Active 2 - Nothing can stand between him and his lunch. Restores life and additional damage bonus for next attack.
