    Acheron is a single player RPG under development by APproject. Game will be hopefully replayable 3 times as difficulty modes may bring slightly different experience.

    Gameplay will be peculiar in its own way. Acheron offers the role of a melee warrior familiar to both, brute force and magic. Hero will grow by killing creeps in a traditional way, yet player will be presented with the choice of picking certain attribute. Attributes determines the course of abilities that will be acquired during the exploration of the world. There will be 3 difficulty levels, item drop will be affected by the difficulty as well as puzzles, boss fights and basic luck, drop of loot. Major items will have 4 of its versions, from common to legendary. The higher the difficulty, the higher chance to drop a better item. Game will contain custom vendor, talent tree menus and book system for even better experience and variable gameplay. Some areas or aspects of the game may be unavailable for lower difficulty.

    Storyline is under development. It will be a custom plot with a slight fragment of greek mythology interpretation. Action may take place in the abode of the dead, underworld (Greek).

    Update 2017-12-10
    Expected release date: Unknown
    Completed: 60 % (3 hours of gameplay or more)

    The terrain would need to be a lot more darker and foggier (personal taste). Nice start so far APproject. Underworld setting? That can be exciting. Have fun developing it.

    And the man strikes back after his latest flame!
    I'll support this project no matter what.
    But please, normal attack. Hate the kind of Iceborn "only spells, no normal attack" kind.

    Thanks for the support, guys. :) This is just a terrain picture, in game it looks darker. No worries, it will have an auto attack, yet still the use of spells will be vital, no afk victories.

    You really a die-hard fan of greek mythology stuff, didn't you? xD

    Will you imply voice over and whole alpha-tile terrain technique on this project as well? Like in your previous Iceborn.

    Now I have the chance to follow a project of yours from the beginning.
    So far it sounds interesting and the terrain is not bad, not bad at all.
    I am looking forward for updates

    I hope that Orc with an arm-blade in your picture is the main protagonist.

    Thank you for your support, didn't expect so many comments in the morning, hehe.

    @sethmachine
    I don't know, just took those and I guess it looks good. :)

    @abdreariona
    Well, greek mythology is really cool and it just appeared to be even cooler after reading up about it, almost from every fragment of greek mythology you can make a decent story interpretation. :) What do you mean by voice? It will be familiar to Iceborn in all aspects indeed, but I hope to push slightly harder this time. Not to expand and take two years making of course.

    @nhs325
    Since game will be divided into three parts, this white orc will be the main bad guy of Alpha version, rest versions will have their own bad guys. Main hero that player will control will be a cool vrykul model.

    ***
    I am looking for a female voice actor for a massive amount of voice recordings. I should avoid making female characters due to difficulty to find someone to act for, but it would be a great addition this time. If anyone is or knows a female that would be willing to lend a hand or if someone is able to make female voice, I would truly appreciate it.

    Ooh, very HQ. Looks a lot like Diablo.
    Although I'm not very fond of HD with RPG combined, this looks pretty cool.
    Good luck.

    You have great concept of the project here. I'm really excited to see another screenshots because you are godly terrainer.

    I love underground maps and stuff and your project looks great.
    I wish you best luck.
