    Winged Pixel's Heroes of a Broken Land was one of the more unusual minor titles of the early Kickstarter era. A strategy RPG that combined city building in a procedurally generated overworld with first person dungeon crawling using multiple parties of heroes. Naturally it was an extremely niche release, and having received its its last update over two and a half years ago, we weren't expecting to hear any more from it. Big mistake! It turns out Winged Pixel have been working on a sequel this entire time. Heroes of a Broken Land 2 looks to be very much the same sort of thing as its predecessor, but with a 3D map and somewhat improved graphics. Here's the announcement:



    Heroes of a Broken Land 2 is a procedural epic RPG, combining exploration and dungeon crawling with town building and multiple party management.

    It will be available in a “early access” state later in 2019 with a full release planned for sometime in 2020.

    Heroes of a Broken Land 2 will feature a procedural world that’s highly customizable. The final version will contain:
    • Over 30 classes, hundreds of skills and 3 playable races
    • Build and customize you own town, dozens of buildings and additions
    • Dozens and dozens of unique quests and adventures that are seamlessly woven into a procedural world
    • Much much more!

    According to its Steam page, Heroes of a Broken Land 2 is coming to Early Access in August, and the plan is to stay in Early Access for at least a year. Quite a lot of detail for a game that's still seven months away - you'd think it'd be released sooner.

    I know it's just my peculiar tastes, but I'll still give my two cents: I really liked the old 2D map, so I think thats a downgrade. On the other hand the dungeon view is much, much better, and you spend more time there, so...

    It already flattens to 2D when you zoom out even in 3D mode. The world map can be set to be 2D at all zoom levels.
