Excerpt: Class of Heroes II is for a select group of gamers. The hardcore RPG fan who takes things very slowly, and work through games meticulously. There are fans of this game play style in the video game industry. How do I know? Class of Heroes II is fan funded and supported. They put their money where their mouths were.
Excerpt: Class of Heroes is a 2D old school dungeon crawler that was released for the PSP in 2009 and it received mediocre reviews in the USA. In Japan the series is doing well enough to produce several sequels for it. Porting it over to the US has been an uphill battle since their Kickstarter fell short of its 500K goal. I'm glad they took the harder road and continued on with translating the game regardless.
Pros: Humorous dialog and fun quests; challenging labyrinths
Cons: There's a little bit of a learning curve and the story takes a little while to pick up steam

Their latest dungeon crawler, Class of Heroes , attempts to make a notoriously punishing genre a bit more accessible while introducing some new ideas to revitalize the formula.
