As a time strapped individual – I just can’t justify sitting down and playing RPG’s for hours and hours and hours. So seeing something like Pocket Heroes pop up makes me very happy.

The game is a turn based multiplayer RPG. You get together with friends, and then send moves to each other when you have time. This means that you don’t have to play continuously and can fit the game in around the rest of your day to day activities.

Visually it could do with some work. I don’t mind the retro look, but it doesn’t even have a simple 2 frame walk animation – so it would be nice to see a bit more love put into it. Of course, as it says in the video, it’s an early version and maybe these things will be improved in the final build.

Either way – this one is on my radar for checking out in the future.
