Hi Guys, finally finished my main game after 4 and a half years of work. Below are all the details, and it up on Hope you like it, let me know what you think... It is done entirely in AGKStudio Tier 1. It is only for Windows. The game mauual is attached below.
This is my first published game, but not the first I have programmed (I currently have 5 more smaller AppGameKit games that I will be publishing soon hopefully)... Can anyone with experience help me on how to make the game known, as I don't know where to premote it to get buyers?

Find it here:-

Lost-Hero is an Indie 2D top-down, solo-player, fully mouse-driven medieval mystery RPG. It has an MMO-style persistent and immersive world map, from where you can discover and "zone" into various dungeons to do battle. You will need to do quests, fight many monsters, and collect items and equipment to help you level your character up high enough to work out the mystery of why you are here and how to get back home.

Synopsis - The basic premise is that you have been pulled from your normal everyday life, and somehow transported instantaneously, and against your will, to an unknown and possibly hostile land. At the start of the game, you find yourself alone on a dark woodland path leading to the South. It would seem your Quest is to find out why this has happened to you, and hopefully how to return safely home.

Mystery - The land you find yourself in is unlike anything you have seen before, and seems to be Medieval in its appearance. Along your Journey, you will need to learn and increase all your skills, even learning magic to help you survive in this ultimate challenge.

congrats on completing this obvious labor of love, RenRutGames!

i'd seen the newest Made With AGK game on and wondered if it would surface elsewhere (while i had inquired on the discord server around the same time as your post, here)

Please accept this shiny new badge for publishing the game on

if you are interested in another, feel free to add Lost-Hero to the AGK Showcase, as well.

btw, have a look at the edit i made to your first post re: how to embed the vimeo vid (or this post for more)

again, congrats on this massive success which i hope continues for you as there is more under the hood than i dare imagine!

Hi, Virtual Nomad. Thanks for the Badge. I have just added the game to the Showcase website, hopefully I did it right. Also thanks for the help with embedding video, I know how to do it properly now.

178 monster types...holy moly.
Having read the features, this could be the most complex game made in AppGameKit I've heard of.
The mysterious cat sold me

Very well done.

Coders don't die, they just gosub without return
