    I completed this with 2 chars already (Mole guy and the turtle guy)
    It's quite fun game tbh, but it lacks content. Yeah, there is multiple heroes, but only 3 actual missions and they are all basically the same thing. (Beat the crap put of everyone)
    The effects were amazing and the fact that you can destroy the terrain is pretty awesome too. Imo the game is a bit easy, but still pretty damn fun and unique :)

    I met 2 bug while playing this with those 2 chars

    1. My mole guy got paused after I used the V shaped drill thing (Happened only once and had to restart mission)
    2. I just defeated the last boss and was in the tab where you select skills and I pressed cancel button to go away from the skill tab and this caused me to get a war3 error
    (Also sometimes when using the dash thingy/pool jump the turtle guy just stands there and the shell just goes on/other turtle jumps instead)

    ALSO when the guy is telling how bullshit the world is, you can move around in the screen o_O

    You should consider making more missions with some twists or quests tbh

    Everyone should try this game at least once, since it's pretty unique and fun :D

    P.S. The font was annoying D:

    Yeah there's fatal error I don't know where tehy comes from...I'd need help to fiw those :(

    And yes there will be more content, a true storyline and more mission, minigames and characters.

    I release this version to somehow gain a public :)
    And If i need to request something people would more likely trust my work.

    Heroes of Genesia is a single player campaign that takes place in the world of Genesia. You get to pick your own hero from a vast number, each with their own model and abilities.

    The gameplay was really awesome, regular hack'n'slash but with lots of custom abilities which worked and looked very good. Of course, the custom, good looking special effects made it all even better. The ability system was rather original and refreshing, like you needed to do a certain amount of regular attacks before you could throw one of the magical abilities at your enemies.

    The terrain was rather good and there was tile variation, height variation and such that made the terrain look really nice. I suppose some more flowers/other environmental doodads wouldn't hurt at some places, but the terrain was overall really nice. Also, there were lots of destructible terrain such as trees and pillars which made it feel a bit more realistic and was overall a cool feature. There was even a mini-game where the goal was to destroy as many trees as possible within a certain time, whilst that may not sound so fun, it actually was.

    The grammar and spelling was really bad, there were typos or grammatical errors nearly everywhere, even in the map description on the Hive. Even though it was understandable what the characters said, bad English is never a good thing, if you're not that good at English yourself, it's usually easy to find a person who can help you correct your sentences.

    I noticed you imported a custom font, unfortunately, I think it looks really bad, and sometimes the new font causes certain sentences to be hard to read/unreadable. I suggest using the ordinary wc3 font or importing a new one that looks/fits better.

    Also, before I forgot, the camera of the Dark Lieutenant's portrait was not pointing at his face, this is nothing major, just pointing it out.

    Speaking of cameras, the in-game camera was somewhat annoying, I don't know what you've done, if it's a bug or intended to be like that. It's hard to explain what it was like, but anyone who tries this out will understand me.

    The vast amount of good looking custom resources was a big plus, by the way. The music, models, icons, it all seemed to fit very well together.

    To summarize, let's begin with the game play, it was like regular hack'n'slash with new abilities that looked and worked really well. The abilities were usable once you had stacked up a certain number of combo points gained from regular attacks. The terrain looked good and much of the terrain was destructible which was really cool. The grammar and spelling was a problem, and a few sentences were nearly unreadable. The custom font didn't look good and made the sentences even harder to read. The in-game camera was somewhat annoying and just locking it to the hero might be a better solution. The campaign used several custom resources such as new models for the heroes that looked really good and fit well together.

    3/5 (Useful) and voted for approval.

    There's is no rules about pre beta.
    And i've seen lot of poorer map approved.
    The camera is a cemra bound that follow your character it's a mix of locked to unit but your still able to scroll a little.It's not annoying you get used to it after a while.

    And anyway it's a campaign so maybe the campaign is in pre-beta stage like you say but it contains 6 maps that aren't pre-beta.

    I don't post much but i download alot of maps and test them out, I like the idea for this map but it lacks alot of variety, i am not saying the heroes aren't different and the terrain is awesome. What i mean is there just not much to do. 6 missions 2 are non playable, in 4 missions you can't even really get level 20. BTW if you need help translating from french to english since as you said in thread World of Genesia your french. I am Great with translations from French to English, Spanish To English or Even Japanese for English You can send me Text and I would be happy to translate it for you

    Oh tanks so that was the cause of all these fatal errors...
    I'll remove the font in the next version.
    And yeah some hero are able to climb cliff but don't do it it's useless :p

    You can replay the map with same character.
    If you play with another character it doesn't reset the progress of your other characters so you can reach level 20 by replaying mission.
    Also the minigame lumberjack make you earns exp.
    Also thanks for proposing help I may send the texts.

    Did it crashed before your character data was saved?
    What character was it?
    It's probably the font it crash the game during victory message but your character progress is usualy already saved.
