Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is an up-to-four-player, action role-playing game that blends roguelike gameplay with procedural dungeons and an expansive fantasy overworld.

Rogue Heroes features classic top down sword slashing combat with a large set of tools, spells, and weapons at your disposal. Fight through 5+ dungeons each with their own style, room layouts and unique dangers.

In addition to battling enemies across the major dungeons, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos also features skill tree customization for characters, while village building gameplay mechanics provide townspeople with more services and houses to improve their lives.

Dungeons are procedurally generated to connect hand made rooms and mix up the layout so no two runs are the same. Keys, puzzles, and traps are mixed up, even within the rooms things won't always play out the same way. Combining randomization with hand placements gives replayability without the fallbacks of uninteresting design that can come from full random generation.

Play in solo or in coop with up to 4 players through the entire campaign beginning to end. Build up your village into a bustling community, take down the dungeons that threaten the outer areas and collect tools to open up your world. Max out your Hero and take them into the infinite dungeon to see how they stack up against a never ending onslaught of enemies, traps, and puzzles.
