Hero's Journey is a projected fantasy MMORPG by Simutronics; there is no projected release date (as of mid-2009). Projected to be the most distinctive feature of Hero's Journey is its quest system (called the "Journey System").[2] The Journey System is a system that adapts quests and gameplay based on the player's decisions, potentially leading to such things as the evolution of a specific creature as a player's nemesis, as well as reappearing characters and themes. Other notable features will include character customization and mandatory multi-classing (having two character classes) from the beginning. Like many of Simutronics's other fantasy games, Hero's Journey is to be set in the world of Elanthia.

Hero's Journey is to utilize the HeroEngine, an MMO engine which is also developed by Simutronics.



Hero's Journey has been in development since the late 1990s (The Mud-Dev-L list's MUD timeline lists the date when development was publicly announced as 1999). Its release date has been pushed back several times since then.[3]

The official web site was last updated in April 2008. This was the first update to the site in six months.
