Advent Heroes RPG game connects worlds in the name of common destiny on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the efforts of indie developer Zero Break Design. Due to make its way onto Steam in 2022.
The fate of all that is known may well depend on people from two distinct worlds. Or so the writings suggest in the debut game release from Zero Break Design. On top of that, the email reply, regarding Linux support, also offers good news.
….the game uses an HTML5 setup rendered using pixi.js so the only requirement is a Chromium base or equivalent, meaning that I can ship with NW.JS on any supported platform (including Linux) without any extra work.
Created by Jeffrey Davis as the official brand for his work in video game media and product development. Zero Break Design aims to deliver classic gameplay and writing with a modern touch. Advent Heroes RPG offers a classic, retro style Japanese roleplay design while including modern concepts and influences. The main design element, the advent essence, gifts the four individuals to defend both our Earth and distant Runeria. Doing so with a special ability. One that can certainly turn the tide of difficult encounters. Which can easily serve as the difference between success and defeat.
Advent Heroes RPG Gameplay Reel
“The pixel based art style of Advent Heroes is that of the games I grew up on. All during the course of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Updated and adapted for today’s audience,” Jeffrey explains. “At first I considered a more modern visual style, but for the simplicity of design and presentation I settled on a retro, 16-bit aesthetic for the game.”
Advent Heroes follows the exploits of four gifted heroes, two from each of the worlds. They will have the task of defending Runeria from a threat by a dark foe. Doing so before it can spill over into our world, and even into the very fabric of life itself. As the story continues across both worlds upon the breach of what amounts to the isekai effect. This is byproduct of the connective essence of all known worlds. While surprising revelations and unexpected provisions relative to those who are called. This destiny begins to reveal itself to the player. Through the adventure to come, the chosen warriors also begin to face the chance of being marked for advance elimination. Doing so by the forces of the unnamed threat itself. Feared as prophesized “heretics” on the outcomes of a false understanding of their destiny.

A Higher Authority:
In fact, Advent Heroes RPG draws many of its vision and concepts from the divine record. From times where those meant to serve have to answer to a higher level of authority and rank. Doing so by means of comparison and equal to matters of mercy and different thinking in the name of a greater good. Influences from classic literature also factor heavily into the story. One occasion refers to such characters and concepts as the monkey king Wukon. The cases of Sherlock and Watson, and the knights of Arthurian legend.
In addition to the main quest, an expedition mode will allow players from around the world to venture in co-op missions. Doing so in a far deeper online experience. Three types of quests are due to be part of the game at launch. Also, team missions where players work together to reach the goal. As well as strategy missions that will test player’s skills. While offering time limit events with varying themes and goals.
Advent Heroes is scheduled to release on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. The release time is due in the fourth quarter of 2022. More information is available on the official website. In the meantime, be sure to Wishlist the game on Steam.
