About the game
Born in a medieval time of warring gods and dark powers, your heroes embark on a grim journey set in the immense post-apocalyptic world of Steel.

Heroes of Steel is a turn-based tactical combat RPG in which you choose and lead a group of four unique characters, each with their own talents, special powers, and abilities. As you traverse the sprawling world of Steel, your party will face myriad challenges, battles, extensive mazes and fearsome enemies of all varieties.

Difficulty is adjustable and an easy playthrough is available, but we made this game for the old-school RPG lovers who relish coming up with smart tactics and well-chosen ability combinations to take on challenges. You decide how to develop each character’s capabilities & combat strategy, building a powerful team capable of triumphing over impossible odds.

It is the dawn of the Seventy First Year after the world has fallen. Four of the Thirteen Gods rose up against their creator, the All-Father, and destroyed him in a cataclysmic event. In the following years of darkness and ruin, the kingdoms of man fell in war and flame.

In the final days before all was lost, under the guidance of an ancient order of druids, the survivors retreated to a massive underground labyrinth; the mysterious Underdeep. Now the last remnants of humanity are scratching out a living in the Underdeep, still trying to rebuild their society. But they’re discovering that evil has caught up to them beneath the surface.

Now, it’s up to you to unravel the mysteries of what’s happening and overcome the darkness.

Equip each of your characters with weapons, armor, mundane or magical accessories -- thousands of gear combinations. Decide how to increase everyone’s attributes & skills to create a party that suits your playstyle. Choose between hundreds of talent progressions, coming up with clever combinations & tactics to use in turn-based combat against ferocious, devious, and magical enemies who threaten humanity's last settlements.


The Trese Brothers have been playing and making tabletop roleplaying games since we were kids. Now as indie game developers, we’ve created award-winning cRPGs known for their deep systems and high replayability. Heroes of Steel was our 5th game but became a “hidden gem” as our first release on Steam. It’s a classic old-school fantasy RPG, inspired by games like Shining Force and the Gold Box D&D games.

Since release, we’ve continued to add free content to the game, with over 5 years and 100+ updates adding new chapters, new characters, tons of improvements thanks to player feedback, and more.

If you enjoy challenging, old-school RPGs, strategy games or turn-based combat, you’ll enjoy this indie RPG.

Contact / Intro

To contact me or to leave feedback or suggestions for the site , please reach me at:

My name is Kolten. I have an M.S. in computer science from the Colorado School of Mines and I work as a software engineer. I love web development and I am always trying my best to improve.

I made this website from scratch and I maintain it in my free-time. I was inspired to make a powerful game search engine after becoming overwhelmed by my own Steam library, thanks to incredible bundle sites like Humble Bundle.

This site scrapes data from Steam and makes many calls to Steam's web API every single day. I do my very best to keep all of the data as up-to-date as possible with my limited resources.


This site is the result of my desire to build a powerful Steam game picker that is more than just a simple random Steam game picker / generator.

I pay for this site out of pocket and get limited support from your donations, from affiliate links (Humble Bundle), and from some light advertising (feel free to adblock me if you find it overwhelming or you find that it significantly detracts from your experience).

If you are interested in an API or viewing some of the incredibly insightful data I have collected, check out the donation page to see more details on getting access to these things. I will also make a public API once I have enough donations to support its operation, but regardless I host the DataTrends page for patrons who donate enough!
