    You like the good old browser games? We also! That's why we've developed Heroes and Merchants. It is a fantasy-crafting MMOG in the style of the old browser games with new interactive content.

    Heroes and Merchants is a hobby project of me and my wife. Now we wish that it continues to fill with life and many players enjoying it!

    "Heroes and Merchants" is completely free-to-play!
    Playstore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oliverbohnes.hm
    AppStore: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/heroes-and-merchants/id1442866548


    What is the game content?
    The game plays in a fantasy world, which was ravaged by rulers of dangerous monsters. The player can recruit heroes and do missions. For this he receives raw materials from which he can produce weapons and armor.


    What additional game elements does HaM contain?
    Players can team up in guilds, complete guild tasks, summon raid bosses and compete against other players in real-time duels. They can benefit from the guild shop and buffs.
    There is the possibility to improve the craftsmen (influence the quality of the goods, selling price, production time).
    Heroes have special abilities that can be selected, increased and actively played in duels.
    There are also chat areas per language and guild.



    What makes Heroes and Merchants special?

    The special feature of HaM is in any case the optical design. Because unlike most of today's games here is not set to digital glossy graphics. All the graphics in the game are handdrawn, the music has also been composed especially for the game. Also, the gameplay is not based on one effect chasing the other - the game gives a touch of nostalgia after the old days of browser games.


    We need you!
    Since the game is free-to-play, and even just a hobby project, we do not have the financial resources, like big game companies, to use expensive advertising. The game is known only by you! If you like it, please download the game from the store, write a review and recommend it to your friends. Or just give us feedback here.

    Visit our Homepage for more information: http://www.heroes-and-merchants.com/

    Thank you!

    An new version V1.3.0 of Heroes and Merchants has been released last weekend.

    - Reset tickets to re-roll the properties
    - Item rating value for the competition
    - Improved tutorial with indicators


    In addition a new coming-soon button is shown already on the main screen called "Competition".
    This will be our next big feature: a weekly crafting competition where every player can participate in.

    Heroes and Merchants received some updates during the last four weeks. We implemented lots of features which have been requested by our community.

    In addition we recently announced a -minigame- which will be playable while waiting for missions and artisan tasks. We plan to add a small oldschool dungeon crawler which can be played with one of the heroes.

    • Guilds can define a description
    • Artisan menu can now be opened at any time via the artisan icon
    • New guilds receive 25k guild coins and 3 Buff points. At the levelup you get 10k guild coins and 1 buff point (up to level 10)
    • Sorting of guilds changed: 1. by level, 2. by members
    • Missions sorting improved: completed missions are the first
    • Leaving guild clean the guild buffs and reconnect the chat
    • Joining a guild reconnects the chat so the guild chat is instantly available
    • Guild bank has been extended by + 5k buttons
    • Stable master experience corrected
    • region selection per artisan
    • fixed region selection for silver chest
    • improved scrolling in lists
    • display of competition remaining time corrected
    • corrected display of the dueling points in the results

    Have fun with the Version 1.6.5!
    Your Heroes and Merchants team
