Hero's Journey E3 Preview

Hero's Journey E3 Preview -

Dana Massey stopped into the booth for Simutronics at the E3 show and was very impressed with what he saw.  For the first time ever we got to witness Hero's Journey in action and it looked great!  A snippet from his mini-preview:

As an MMO reporter at E3, I expected to see a lot of fantasy titles. After the first day of the show, one among them has risen up and made me take notice. Hero’s Journey from Simutronics has been on the radar for a while, but not until yesterday did we have a chance to see more than visuals.

They designed Hero’s Journey with fun as the prime motivator. To achieve this, they did away with a great deal of the typical conventions you have come to expect. The most striking thing is their character customization. To date, games have made you chose your armor based on its skills rather than its look. Hero’s Journey lets you wear whatever you want and still effectively have it protect you. For example, you may dress as a pirate, a knight in shining armor or any other of the amazing combinations they offer. The frilly pirate shirt will act just as well as the armor for protection. Obviously, this sacrifices realism, but it ensures that players get to look how they want and still effectively play the game.
