Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar a first look and hands-on

Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar is an #RPG set to be #released on August 21st for Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows PC.  The game starts with you searching for a magical artifact that can prevent an upcoming catastrophe. After finding it and returning home, you’re accosted by the castle guards and thrown in prison. Thus begins your adventure of finding out just what is wrong with Queen Sijsen and the rest of the kingdom.

After an hour of playing, a few unique quirks of the combat system. Characters will only automatically attack the enemy right in front of them, but their abilities can still be used on a random target. However, each of their abilities have a cooldown that only counts down if they’re currently fighting an enemy. Each character also earns experience separately and only if they land the killing blow. It is possible to have your strongest fighter do most of the damage and then swap him or her for another character to give that character the experience.

Earning items is also unusual as they occasionally appear in the boxes on the left side of the screen. If you do not use a potion or equip one of your characters with the weapon or shield, it eventually disappears entirely. Some of the items give bonuses to a random stat, and the more luck you have, the higher chance you have of getting better quality items. At the end of the mission you can recycle the items that remain into ingredients which can be used in crafting better weapons and armor.

The characters banter with each other between missions, but there has yet to be any decision making so far. A better help system or some tooltips in the final version to give some guidance in deciding what stat to increase when characters level up. Still, the unusual combat and loot systems makes this a game to watch for when it’s released on August 21st.

Developed by Cuve Games and published by Phoenix Online Publishing, Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar will be available for OS X, Windows, and Linux. Learn more at Phoenix Online Publishing.
