Indie Wonderland: Hero Generations

And closing out our impromptu three-week Kickstarter Spree is Heart Shaped Games‘s Hero Generations. A game so determined to be on the cutting edge, it only came out while I was writing the previous review.

Hero Generations is the best kind of Kickstarter game, in my opinion: a game I liked from the pitch, backed, and then immediately forgot about. Having it show up now, unannounced, years after actually paying for it, is like receiving presents from Past Jarenth. And I like that! Thanks, Past Jarenth. For all the guff I give you re: occasional incredibly poor life choices, you’re a good dude from time to time.

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, medium. Mechanical, high.)

After the break: Hero Generations. Will this be a game about spontaneously creating heroes? Or a game about long-lasting hero legacies? THE ANSWER WILL PROBABLY NOT SURPRISE YOU.
