Meringue Entertainment’s Stealth RPG, “Hegemone Pass”, just launched a major update to both their demo and Kickstarter page thanks to community feedback. Create a trail of miasma to hide from sight or teleport through walls and eliminate your foes in turn-based RPG battles in this Windows and Linux RPG (and possibly for Switch and Xbox One).
With your eye of miasma, you’ll be creating your very own shadows to both teleport yourself through walls and foes, striking in battle without them knowing of your presence. If the enemy does spot you, your foes will begin their hunt, empowering them in battle and calling in reinforcements. Touch a foe to enter battle!
In the game’s RPG battles, both allies and foes have a Leader, and victory goes to the side who eliminates their enemy’s leader. However, Leaders activate their “Leader Title”, a carried title which empowers their allies or oppresses their foes. Leaders can pass around their Leader status from ally to ally with the “Hegemone Pass”, activating a new ally’s “Title”. The Hunt empowers enemy leader titles, making battles while detected a life or death situation.
A new demo is now available for download, showcasing the new mechanics, graphical improvements, improved balancing, and much more. A major revamp of the Kickstarter page is now online, the funds will be used to work full-time on the game’s development and pay for future music to be composed by Paradoxigent. The finished game is planned for a June 2020 release.
- A Stealth RPG: Eliminate your foes in the shadows to survive your encounters. Getting caught will lead to very tough battles unless you hide.
- Trail of Shadows: With your eye of miasma, create trails of shadows, which can both hide you from enemies, and teleport you to out of reach areas! You’ll be intangible to your enemies!
- Take on Leaders: Eliminate the enemy leader to win! Use your Leader’s title to empower allies or oppress foes. Switch Leaders using the titular “Hegemone Pass” technique to activate their leader title and change the tide of battle.
- Contest the Fight: When ally and foe are supposed to act at the same time, they’ll act indefinitely unless one hits the other with a non-resisted attack. Exploit this by negating enemy turns or eliminate their strong by contesting with their weak!
- Equip Flowers & Powers: Equip multiple flowers with synchronizing colours and brightness levels to gain techniques and more stat increases and find Persephone’s missing powers like walking on lava or emitting shockwaves, opening up new possibilities on the field.
- Mythological Setting, Colourful Cast: Humans, gods and monsters all populate this unique take on the Underworld, featuring simple but adorable characters. The story is a complete deviation of the original myth with unique plot events.
