    Heroes of Delum - real-time strategy, single and multiplayer co-op game. Play as 1 to 5 friends and survive together!
    Being inspired by the Kodo Tag custom map/scenario from Warcraft 3, which is one of its popular "mod", we decided to work on releasing a dedicated game around the concept, with lots of changes and variations, both in theme and gameplay.

    You play a nameless hero who fights against near endless hordes of monsters that spawn from a magic portal created by the dark forces of Delum.

    Your only goal is to survive: collect resources, build defenses, upgrade your character.
    Win, using your brawn and brains, and the help of your friends!

    • 1 to 5 players online co-op
    • Requires skill and thinking
    • Randomly occurring events for a dynamic gameplay
    • Difficulty levels from cake to hellish nightmare!
    • More game modes to come
    • A variety of enemies with different strengths to overcome
    • Different world environments
    • ...and ninja cats!

    We are a very small independant team of 2 dedicated game developers who want to share our gaming passion around the world!
    We already have developed several games, this one being our latest and most complete.
    The work continues on Heroes of Delum but the actual version is more than playable and contains most of the game's features that we intended to create.

    In advance thanks for your comments and input and please do have fun!

    Hi guys :)

    We just released a new demo!

    The core changes of this version are:
    • Anyone can now host a game without forwarding a port
    • There are now shrines placed on the map that sometimes spawn enemies. Deactivate them!
    • Enemies drop meat that heal you.
    • A timer on the top-left corner of your screen will inform you of the next incoming type of enemies.

    ...along with lots of tweaks and bug fixes that you can read on our indiedb article.

    Hey!
    We received lots of feedback concerning our website that could be improved a lot, so we decided to make a new version. And today this new version is online!

    www.heroesofdelum.com

    The v2 has a brand new design and is more community oriented. We will regularly document the development of the game as a devblog.

    See you soon :)
