    We've covered Heroes of a Broken Land previously, but on the off chance you forgot, it's a dungeon crawling RPG with multiple parties and procedurally generated dungeons combined with some Heroes of Might and Magic-like elements (such as hero recruitment and town management).

    Today, the game has been released on Steam for the price of $14,99/£10.99:



    Heroes of a Broken Land is a turn-based, dungeon crawling, town management RPG.

    Explore procedurally generated worlds and dungeons with multiple parties of heroes. Ally with other towns to recruit new and more powerful heroes. Explore and loot countless dungeons on your quest to save the world.
    • First person, turn-based dungeon crawling action
    • Manage multiple 6 parties of up to 6 heroes each to explore the word
    • Manage towns, constructing buildings to upgrade your heroes and kingdom
    • Recruit heroes from the realm and turn novices into powerful adventurers
    • Each game is a unique world unto itself, with countless worlds and dungeons
    • Choose the size of your world: explore a small Fragment for quick adventure, or an enormous one for an epic quest
    A Broken Land, shattered by the Wizards of old, the Fragments of the Old World are adrift in the Void. You must visit and restore each Fragment of the Void, only then can the World be rebuilt. However you are trapped in a crystal body, unable to act alone.

    You must gather and recruit the many Heroes of each Fragment to act for you. You must explore each Fragment of the World. Delve into every dungeon to gather the resources and power needed to purify each Fragment. Expand your outpost to train and equip your heroes. Make allies with the other towns and settlements, convince them to join in your quest.​

    Heroes of a Broken Land is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Aside from Steam, you can also buy it on Desura, GamersGate or directly from the developer's website.

    Is it possible to get a Steam key if I bought it through the website a while back?

    That pixel art is so bad that I will not even give this game a try for the sake of my aesthetic sensibilities. UI looks atrocious in general.

    Maybe would've been better to stick to barebones GFX and have most of the game be a text dump.

    Sadly the generic randomly generated dungeons start getting on your nerves about 2-3 hours in, even on the smallest map settings it's insanely repetitive and limited.
