The Origin of Sim Hero
Story by Matt Plourde, Sim Hero creator
Very simply, this project is a result of my hunt for a game similar to Final Fantasy’s: My Life as King. This WiiWare title captured my love for RPG’s & Sports Management Sims and mashed them together into one beautiful (tho flawed) game.
The idea of carefully managing parties of adventurers and sending them into dungeons isn’t a new one. This has been done many, many times before. However, My Life as King differed on one key point: - You neither watched nor controlled battle.
After sending your adventurers out into the wild, you went about your tasks in town. Upon their return (if they made it back), you could comb the combat reports to see how your parties fared. Did they delve deep and find glorious treasure? Were their skills put to the test? Did they defeat a boss? Level up? Tragically lose a comrade?
This gameplay rung true with me and I was immediately enchanted. After many hours, I soon learned that the game was limited in strange, inexplicable ways – and I dropped it when I realized it was less about hero/loot/skill/class/party management, and more about where I placed my buildings/structures in the 3d village.
Years passed but I kept on the hunt for games like My Life as King. Some have been similar, but no game I’ve come across has “got it right.” My appetite was awakened to this type of game and I scoured the internet trying to find similar titles. For years, I have abandoned and re-started this quest of mine – all to come up empty each time.
In 2012, I came to a realization – if the game didn’t exist, I would make it. Heh. Yeah. I’m kind of a lunatic that way.
Sim Hero was born.
