Default Eredia: The Diary of Heroes - Review

November 24th, 2019, 10:23
Jtrev23 checked out the demo of Eredia: The Diary of Heroes:

A step above the rest - Jtrev23 Reviews

In Eredia, the player follows the tale of Kenrad, a perverted self-proclaimed hero as he strives to gain fame, fortune, and most of all, women. Unknown to Kenrad and his allies, trouble is brewing in many different forms and the player must be careful about how they go about solving a problem, for one wrong decision can affect the whole game. For the record, I played the demo version of this game to completion in 8 hours and 34 minutes according to the internal game clock.

-INITIAL THOUGHTS-

I will start off by saying that I enjoyed playing this game. It has a nice plot, crude but funny humor, and the game forces players to make decisions that actually impact the story in some way. Though not expressed as much in the demo, forcing the player to make tough decisions actually helps the player get into the world of the game more. In one side quest, the player has to decide what to do with the body of a deceased boy and I chose to loot the body for his belongings. Even though I know it is only a game, choosing to loot the body actually made me feel guilty, which in turn helped me to see the characters in the game as real people instead of just characters. While I hope that this feature is explored more in the full release, the thing I enjoyed the most about Eredia was its versatility. In the main story and side-quests, the player has to adapt for the mission at hand. Some missions force the player to defeat all enemies while others have the player avoid them instead. Some missions even involve detective work as the player has to solve a murder mystery case on top of collecting the bounty for a wanted criminal. The versatile and rich background for the story and its characters is definitely the thing I like most about the game and the main reason why I would recommend it to others to play.

[…]

-OVERALL-

Definitely check this game out when you get the chance. I say if you like RPG games and don't mind playing and 8 hour demo then download and lay this game now. I personally recommend you try out this game if you like RPG Maker games, RPG's in general, or games that are well written, with rich backstories. If you like those types of games then I believe you would love playing Eredia: The Diary of Heroes.

Somehow I missed the release of this game last year - I have lots of fun with it.

I'm 30 hours into the game and it was entertaining with a good story, interesting and funny characters and challenging puzzles and fights so far.

There's nothing pathetic about this game. If you try it for a few hours, you'll recognize how well it is designed.

RPG-Maker-Games always have the advantage that you have more time to design quests, stories and characters than fiddeling with graphic engines.
