QuestRun Has a Worthy Successor in Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar


French indie studio Cuve Games has partied up with Phoenix Online Publishing to release a new fantasy JRPG strategy game titled Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar. While Cuve makes no mention of any such relation, Heroes & Legends clearly is an evolutionary step forward for the gameplay mechanics featured in QuestRun, which we recently featured in our Indie Quickie series.

The gameplay and UI similarities are unmistakable, as are the visuals, which have the same artistic aesthetic, only with richer detail and less cutesy, more realistic character designs. In addition to having a much longer title than QuestRun, Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar looks to bring more strategic depth to the Active Time Battle random encounter runner-style gameplay with more monsters, class types, special abilities and even an all-new crafting system for custom-making weapons and armor.

Heroes & Legends: Conquerors of Kolhar is scheduled to launch August 21st for PC, Mac and Linux on Steam and the Phoenix Online Store, as well as various other online distribution networks. If you love the grind of JRPG random encounters, you’re going to want to keep tabs on this game for sure.
