The economic climate is a challenge for everyone. Hero Games have had to make a tough choice in order to keep going. Staff who have been with the publisher for more than a decade and who are responsible for more than 108 books are stepping away.
Steve Long, who wrote the rule book, will be around to answer questions but will not be a full time employee. Darren Watts – the President of Hero Games – is also stepping back. Last man standing is Jason Walters who takes care of book shipping and day-to-day matters.
The good news is that the company are trying to adapt. The Book of the Empress is ready to go and so Hero may turn to Kickstarter to fund it.
