Monsters and madmen are everywhere. Glory awaits the stalwart heroes who would stand against the forces of evil. You’re not one of those heroes. You’re the people behind the heroes - the shopkeepers and the smithies and the potion brewers who outfit adventurers with the gear necessary to undertake their quests.
Hero's Crossing is a board game where players manage individual towns that produce and sell resources heroes need on their journeys. Your task is to juggle supply and demand to best outfit the heroes with what they’ll need. Do your job wrong and a brave knight may end up fighting a dragon with nothing but twigs and shoelaces. Do your job right and you may help save the world.
Hero's Crossing is a love letter to classic video game RPGs - you'll find heroes and buildings that look like they belong in the games we grew up on. On top of that, Hero's Crossing employs a unique art evolution mechanic - as you play and your town grows, the art in the game shifts from 8-bit to 16-bit to 32-bit to match the evolution of early pixel art. This doesn't just apply to the heroes you'll encounter in the game. Throughout the game you'll be building up a town, and the tiles in that town will similarly upgrade in art style (and power!).
