History

The game history comes back to 2002. First version of Lost Hero started as a classic dungeon crawler game. Oldschool gameplay and retro look haven't raised much of attention, so later on the original idea was changed completely. Lost Hero turned into a medieval multiplayer arena fighting game. First prototypes of the second concept revealed a high risk of failture in case the community won't be engaged enough to keep the arenas running all the time. In 2015 the concept has finally changed to hardcore action soulslike RPG with 4 players coop.
