The old-school text adventure—Heroes Of Book & Paper Steam Early Access is available now! It’s inspired by the gamebooks of old, and it has multiple endings and stories to explore.
The game is still in Early Access, and is still continually being updated with features. The Heroes Of Book & Paper (HB&P) draws from 80s/90s style of video game design and concept.
As with any choose-your-own-adventure game, your decisions will determine the outcome of your adventures and story!
In HB&P, the game begins with you generating a character from a series of classes. There are 8 to choose from: Warrior, Wizard, Rogue, Bard, Necromancer, Priest, Hunter, and Assassin.
You’ll be dropped into a medieval fantasy world, made up of different stories to explore. These stories will change, due to procedural elements, your character, and even decisions up until that point! Which makes them replayable.
Even if you make the same choices, the stories may change if you choose to replay them. In Heroes of Book & Paper, you’ll never play the same two adventures again.
This game features two modes: Free play and Campaign. In the free mode, you can choose to play the stories in any order you want, and choose between the difficulty settings.
Whilst, in Campaign mode—the game is more of a guided experience. You’ll have to overcome 5 randomly selected, and generated stories with an increasing difficulty level.
So, where do the RPG elements kick in? During adventures, you’ll gain experience and level up, which also lets you build your character to your liking.
You could even end up turning your character into a wizard-warrior hybrid—granted you find the right spells and items!
The Heroes Of Book & Paper is still in Early Access, and being updated. The game has a road map, but they’re open to community suggestions and feedback for future update/content ideas!
