Heroes & Empires is being developed by CryptoViet Labs and IMBA Studio. The game is also co-incubated by Megala Ventures.

“Although there is some very detailed information about the heroes and their characteristics and special powers, I would like to get a better understanding of the overall story of the game. It is always good to grasp the story as a whole, rather than trying to analyze it through the descriptions of the individual heroes.
I found the web page pretty informative in terms of the game itself. There are guides for team building, as well as on how to play the game for both beginners and advanced players.
The fact that there is no detailed whitepaper does come across as a little unprofessional, but their main focus is on the game details, which is also reflected in the way they have built the game. However, the overall layout, in my opinion, seems a little muddled.
Regarding the team, the information is limited in terms of the company names behind this ecosystem. When I performed a search, I found that some of the partners' web pages were ‘not secure,’ which makes me think they didn`t pay for proper domain names. Furthermore, some partners did not even have web pages, or they weren’t working.
Overall, the documentation is not very user friendly or well coordinated, and this can be seen on their Road Map, too. It is difficult to tell if their goals have been achieved or were just planned. Further investigation is necessary to be able to figure out exactly what they’ve managed to do.
When investigating their social media, I noticed that their Twitter has 103,400 followers, but their tweets only get 5-10 likes each. Similarly, their Telegram chat is full of announcements, but there is no active chat between followers. Their Facebook has 19,000 followers but again, posts get single-figure likes. Ultimately, this makes me think that the followers are not real.
Discord is the most active of their channels, which is to be expected within the gaming community. However, their YouTube channel does seem to be getting more likes and more activity.
Although there is an initial investment required, there is a Free-To-Play option in which players are given 5 non-mintable heroes so they can experience the gameplay. This is a good initial option for players to decide if they like the game and want to invest.”
Developed on Unity Engine, Heroes & Empires combines Idle Role Playing Gaming with a strategy game approach.
Players select five heroes and create a team for battle, focusing on choosing characters that complement each other to create a stronger unit. After doing this, players can then take part in PvP and PvE battles, earn rewards, upgrade, and increase their heroes powers. Players can also join daily, weekly and progress quests to earn rewards and $HE tokens.
As well as different races, each hero has a different story and abilities. Players must build their teams strategically to win battles, paying attention to their heroes’ abilities. Heroes also have special gear, such as weapons, helms, armor, and boots. Each individual item of gear has usage limits for different races and types.
Players will be awarded with signature items during the game as they win the battles and unlock new levels. These items will increase power stats as well as unlocking the heroes’ special skills.
The races of heroes are:
