Heroes and Monsters

Hello world!

This is Dimos-Adonis, a new game developer here on itch.io. 've just posted my new game, "Heroes and Monsters", featuring 6 ancient Greek heroes and heroines fighting off the hordes of monstrous beasts to achieve victory and fame! 

-There are 12 monsters from the Greek Mythology. 

-There are 4 difficulty settings: Easy (Kill 20 monsters), Normal (Kill 50 monsters), Hard (Kill 100 monsters) and Titan (kill 200 monsters)

-The heroes have different abilities and skills. They are grouped according to class. Easier heroes/heroines to play: Hercules, Atalanta, moderate: Chiron, Cassandra, harder heroes to master: Odysseus and Hippolyta. 

-You can play against your friends (select titan difficulty) and then count (also counted in-game by the game) how many monsters each player killed. Just remember to pick different heroes so as you can boast about your epic choice afterwards!

Finally, thank you for reading my devlog!

Looks interesting! Was this made in RPG Maker MV? If so... there's no technical reason Mac users like myself can't play, besides the way the game was packaged... and I want to play, but I can't on a Mac.

Sorry about that, I will extract my games for MAC/OS today, too. 

The reason I didn't extract them before is because I never used MAC/OS, so I was not able to test and provide technical support for my games in that operational system (OS). I'll let you know once I've uploaded something new! :)


After extracting the files (because I am not familiar with the file format) I seem to be unable to locate the game icon/launcher (I change the default RPG maker icon with a custom one in my games), and I have no way of testing everything afterwards! Still, I'll be looking on it and I'll ask some friend if they might have a MAC/OS pc to help me test, so I can upload with confidence!

Ah OK. There's a number of issues with producing macOS builds on Windows - the biggest of which is that an application produced this way, even if well-formed, won't run because it won't appear executable. You can work around this by using a ZIP archive, though.

I've deployed it as MAC/OS X, then I used Winrar to zip it!

I dunno... Will it be working now? If you want, just give it a try, and let me know if it's working fine. If it doesn't work, I think itch.io will be willing to cancel the transaction or something... :) We'll find the best solution, anyways!

Thanks for buying the game. Give it a try, let me know how it goes. If all is fine, I'll be adding MAC/OS X support to my Heroes and Monsters II - Medieval and (soon) after v0.6 to my Hercules RPG. :) Fingers crossed!

It doesn't work, sadly. (As I expected, the primary executable isn't... executable, so macOS refuses to run it - this is why I said ZIP format, not RAR, as the OS solves that for you on extraction.) Then I got an unsigned app warning, which was completely expected. Telling it to continue on resulted in an immediate crash... and it still crashes after eliminating translocation as a possible cause. Oh well! I can play on my Windows 10 PC, so all isn't lost.

Damn! Sorry about that. Unfortunately I've never worked with MAC/OS X, so I'm totally in the dark here. Sadly 2 of my friends who know some technical stuff in linux knew nothing about MAC. Well, I'll have to delete the unusable "MAC" file. But I will keep on experimenting and I'll send you a copy in your e-mail, if I ever manage to make it playable in MAC/OS X. I'm glad you've also got a windows PC, so all was not in vain! :) Once more, sorry about the inconvenience and I hope you'll enjoy the game! 

I'll e-mail you to see if we can find a way to deploy the game for MAC/OS X, too. Take care!
