Who Created Heroes of Dire?

Spellbook is a very small indie game studio located in the Midwestern United States. The development team for Heroes of Dire is made up of just a few programmers, artists, and dungeon masters who share a passion for creating fun and challenging online games.

The Heroes of Dire project began December 2015, was successfully funded on Kickstarter in May 2016, had a public beta test October 2016, and opened the first live server November 2016.

What technology is used?

Heroes of Dire is powered by the Unity3D game engine and Microsoft Azure platform.

Our custom MMO game engine (The Pit), network code, databases, websites, leaderboards, dungeon master tools, and content systems were created in-house by our talented and physically attractive programmers.
