What makes my game unique?
Hero G Prologue: The Newbie Hero Chicken is the first game developed by Narwhal.GT, a team based in southern Taiwan. The side scrolling game, commencing its sales on Google Play Taiwan on 26 Mar 2016, combines chicken nurturing, item collection, and adventure reaction, the world in which presented with cute, healing art features, as well as humorous plots. The player, as the god in the game's world, cannot leave the game to play itself with semiautomatic controls and must assist the dim witted chickens in overcoming numerous challenges and adventures, transforming the chickens into heroes!
Chickens, by their nature, just rush forward and hit whatever monster they come across without avoiding pitfalls. Call them naive if you will, but the player, as the chicken's god, must consume their own magic powers to help chickens avoid dangers, dodge boss attacks, collect ability boosts and unleash critical attacks! Time to guide those chickens in their quests!
『The Nurturing System』
The destiny that the god meets the dimwitted chicken is the destiny the god must accept, where enhancing the inner and external abilities, as well as placing the right partners in a team, are the keys to strengthening the chicken! All the partners of the Hero are hatched at the Incubation Center, where all the classes and abilities of the chickens are determined at birth. Even if different chickens are born to the same class, they may be bestowed with different abilities! As the abilities of professional warriorclass chickens are enhanced, equipment and gears also become more comprehensive. Some warrior classes can provide much assistance in battle in certain special stages. Time to challenge levels with different team layouts!
『The Gear/Equipment System』
With the ease to obtain items in levels, players can experience what it feels like to change gears at high frequency! Even if different gears look the same, they may have different attributes, and randomly added magic affixes are also a huge factor for making the gear desirable!
Apart from appearances, attributes and affixes, different weapons also carry different abilities. Whether or not such abilities match the chicken also affects the inlevel performance of the chicken character.
Simply put, you, the god, decide the relationship between the Hero, and the gears!

『Possibilities for Future Cooperation with Hero G』
What sets Hero G apart from other game cobranding is that we focus more on how our partners' IP and characters are brought into the Hero G world. Therefore, for our partners we mindfully developed a plot in which characters can be brought into the world, where external characters won't stand out oddly from original counterparts. With the flexible world setup in Hero G, we allow more possibilities for cooperation and new story lines.
Take SickGame, our first cobranding partner, for example, we combined their bunny protagonist and the Alice in Wonderland story line and created the Hero Chicken in Wonderland plot. Transforming the bunny to a Hero Glike character (Fig 8), the bunny's personality traits and the Alice in Wonderland story line are integrated for the creation of a new plot. Cooperative game development is no longer a marketing tool, but also allows games to further refine the already refined game contents.
