NPC’s hate you… seriously. That’s the premise behind a new Kickstarter game called You Are Not The Hero from Donn Manalili and ToMorning Productions. It’s a RPG game unlike anything you’ve played as it takes a look at how the NPC’s you constantly interact with feel about life in a world full of Heroes, monsters, and are not the hero
You Are Not The Hero puts is an RPG that focuses on the people Heroes tend to screw over… the NPC’s. The developer wanted to take a look at how the innocent bystanders felt in RPG games as Heroes come through their towns stealing loot and causing chaos. YANTH puts you into the role of an innocent girl named Petula, who’s lost her prize pendant to some heroes out on an epic quest. There’s a storyline to follow, but there’s a whole lot more to the game than are not the hero
Whether you want to talk the militia into fighting nasty Kobolds or just chill out and run a bakery, You Are Not The Hero has you covered with sustainable mini games. It’s a game where the emphasis on actually “fighting” has been pushed into the background which means you’ll have to use your brain to figure out to how to deal with your foes. There are also puzzles and pulleys to deal with, and as a backer you’ll get to help shape the gameplay, mini-games, and quests that will populate the world of You Are Not The are not the hero
You Are Not The Hero is one of the cooler concepts we’ve seen with a RPG as NPC’s are the characters most of us don’t spend a lot of time thinking about. YANTH plans on changing that, and gamers definitely dig the idea as they’ve already amassed 650 backers and hit their $12,000 goal in a couple of days.  It’s safe to say people want to see this game happen, and if you are one of those folks you can head on over to Kickstarter and pledge your support for You Are Not The Hero.
