HOTAR is a singleplayer RPG about fighting bosses and arming your soldiers making them stronger and more dangerous. You will have to figure out the correct tactics and also get the right gear (e.g. some which provides you a certain resistance to a magic school) to be able to defeat a boss. If you enter a dungeon, the configuration of your party may also be crucial for your success. Different character classes offer different abilities and spells which you might need to control and defeat your enemies but also to heal and strengthen your own group members.



In the world of Hotar usually you will control a small group of 3 members which will gain experience and loot from each defeated enemy. However to face stronger opponents you will have to enter dungeons. These are special areas designed for bigger parties (6, 10, 15 or 20 people). In the game you will meet NPCs which will allow you to recruit further party members for some gold. These members initially will have a very poor gear but they will start at a higher level so you don't have to train them all the way up from the beginning. Any time you will have access to the pool of your group members and can decide which of them should fight the next battle to adapt your group to the current situation.



This game feels very much like an MMORPG with the difference that you can control all the involved characters by yourself. During battles the game can be paused so you can give orders to your people e.g. to use a spell or to move so you have enough time to control even the largest groups.





Some of the features the game currently has to offer:

+ many hours of gameplay
+ 8 character classes
+ Level 50 as the highest possible level which can be reached
+ Dozens of different talents, magical spells and abilities
+ Loot system: random items dropped by all monsters and specific, generally better items dropped by bosses
+ Different qualities of the items: bad, normal, magical, rare and epic
+ Big levels which are filled with new enemies every time you re-enter. This way you can look for (specific) gear until you have what you need to proceed or try to reach even higher levels to become even stronger. You can also defeat a boss multiple times in a row if you have to.
+ Dungeons which can be entered by parties of 6, 10, 15 or 20 people only
+ Pause the game any time during battle to give orders to your characters
+ English and German localization

Planned features:
+ A crafting system (will be introduced with the next update!)
+ Further kinds of items, e.g. arrows, usables (potions will be introduced with the next udate!)
+ Much more areas
+ Much more bosses and other monsters
+ More talents, spells and abilities to come
+ More items
+ etc.

Potions and stackable items will be introduced soon. In fact this new feature is already implemented, just needs to be polished a little followed by some in depth testing. There is a new bar on the bottom of the screen now where you can put up to two usable items for each character to use them in battle.

HOTAR 0.2.02 is out and ready for download!
This time I bring a couple of new features to the game.
The crafting system is now introduced! You will be able to craft your own items and also disassemble found items to make new ones from their parts. To do so you will need some plans which will drop from slain enemies and also resources which can be found in the world. This only the beginning of the crafting system, it will be extended later and I will also add further professions (currently there is only blacksmithing). Please tell me if you like it.





The other feature concerns usable items (see previous post). Currently there are only potions (healing and mana potions) but there is more to come in the future. To use a potion you must drag it from the inventory to the bottom bar of a character where you will find two new slots.

Some boss fights in Hotar are very hard and can only be mastered with according gear and tactic.

I love the idea of managing many characters and the sound of very challenging fights! Will the player need to do things to recruit NPCs or will they always be willing to join the fight?

There are NPCs in game which allow you to recruit more characters (2 NPCs atm), you will have full access and control over them as soon as you have recruited them and there is almost no limit in how many characters you can recruit but you can only use a certain number of characters at the same time. However you cannot recruit NPCs, if you recruit somebody he becomes a part of your character pool. Recruiting costs some gold but that shouldn't be a big problem in general.

Feel free to download the game at http://hotar.de/ if you like it, you can also use the forums http://hotar.de/forum/index.php for discussions  Smiley

One more spider boss in the same dungeon. A very funny fight which requires some AoE Smiley

This reminds me of some old-school games! But with a more modern gameplay approach.

Do you have any plan to add co-op multiplayer to this game? This looks brilliant.

Multiplayer is not planned, this is a pure singleplayer game.

"Lich" is the last boss inside of the dungeon "Crypt" and can drop some epics like these (and more).

Warlocks will be able to summon different minions with different abilities soon. All the most important work is already done. Warlocks will also get additional talents to make their minions and also themselves stronger.

One more powerful minion for warlocks coming soon! He has lots of armor and a shield and some resistances, too, so you can use him as tank, available at level 50. I will give him some nice abilities, too.

Be ready for epic boss fights! Dragons are some of the most dangerous bosses.
