Hero's Journey was a fantasy MMORPG in development by Simutronics that made use of the company’s signature Hero Engine. The game promised to be a dynamic experience, with a player's actions having real impact upon the gameplay experience s/he would have. Characters would have to choose both a primary and secondary class and combat skill would be based upon both of these. Little more was known except that the long in-development game would take place in Elanthia, the site of Simutronics' previous games. In March 2009, all developers on Hero's Journey were laid off or re-assigned to other projects, even though no official announcements were made of the game's cancellation.
