Heroes of Dire is a turn-based tactical fantasy role playing game. Players create squads of fighters from several available archetypes and battle against NPCs and other players in strategic combat. Heroes of Dire's combat system is inspired by classic games such as Chess, X-Com, and Dungeons & Dragons.

Cross-platform play is available PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. Release on Steam is coming soon. Desktop users can download the game now at http://www.dire.com/. Heroes of Dire has been developed in Unity3D.
