The new demo has a few more dungeons for you to explore, I have also added items, bushes and other things to decorate dungeons with.
You can also enjoy a new user interface, some of you will recognize it from Caribbean Pirate Quest, but I think the theme works great for Hero.
I have added a options menu so you can set your favorite resolution, or play in windowed mode if you like, I also added a option to change the brightness for all of you with dark monitors...
On the technical side I have rewritten the ray-tracer so you will experience more accurate and faster lighting and shadows. I have removed some of the flickering graphics.
Game play has been changed so now you pick items with LEFT mouse button, and you can zoom in and out with the mouse wheel. Equiping armor and drinking potions now takes time units, so you can be stabbed when enjoying your 75% potion.
I have started to work on the skill-system, so when you raise "melee weapon skill" you also unlock new weapons, similar system will be done for the other skills in the future.
I have corrected a few bugs including the ALT-TAB bug from iteration 4.
I really hope you enjoy playing Hero and write a line or two in the forum what you like or dislike!
After two weeks of hard work, I´m proud to present iteration 4 of Hero!
Download an play for free today!
The focus of iteration 4 was to make dungeons a bit more interesting, previous iterations have had generated dungeons, but now I got a in game editor and can create great custom dungeons. I also introduce stairs, water and floors on different levels. Hero iteration 4 contains 3 different dungeons so check them out!
Stealth now works better in dark areas, so put out that torch and back stab your enemies to oblivion!
Hero I4 also got some great music from mad!
Iteration 4 is the result of 30 hours of hard work, and it is only two short weeks to iteration 5 so help me prioritize by giving feedback in the Hero forum!

An update to hUb has just been released introducing game categories. As the number of games on hUb continues to grow we felt it was necessary to start some form filtering to enhance the user experience and you can now select the what categories of games you want to display. This update also fixes an issue with the DirectX installation procedures and you should be correctly prompted on Vista when you install DirectX.
This update is automatically applied when launching hUb.
Enjoy and feel free to post any comments in the hUb forum
Shoot em up game T.W.T.P.B. iteration 30 has just been released on hUb. This release is exclusively available for download on hUb and the support for installer and zip version will probably be discontinued.
In this update the acronym for T.W.T.P.B. is finally officially revealed as "They Want Their Planet Back". The secret has been out for a while in our forum and it was about time we made it official.
The update also increases the life support to 5 lives in demo mode and support for custom resolution and reworked resolution menu options, support for swapped mouse buttons as well as some other minor fixes.
