Hatch Your Hero: Yolk Heroes Blends RPG with Nostalgic Tamagotchi Fun

Pocket heroes are taking over the realm! The anticipated idle title – Yolk Heroes: A Long Tamago – releases today from indie developer 14 Hours Productions. This tiny title is available now to download on Steam.

Your realm is in grave danger! As its Guardian Spirit, the Fairy Queen has tasked you with raising elf heroes to protect the land from the Frog Lord. As danger draws near and the Frog Lord’s minions begin infiltrating the countryside, your heroic elves might be the only ones who can save this land.

An Idle Adventure

Inspired by the classic Tamagotchis of the 90s, Yolk Heroes: A Long Tamago blends idle RPG mechanics with the digital pet sim genre. Raise and care for your hero from egg to adventurer, prepare them for quests, and gain the skills to defeat the dreaded Frog Lord. The local Adventurer’s Guild has all the resources you need to take care of your tiny tot. Train strength, dexterity, and intelligence in their assigned hero class, and tend to their hunger, hygiene, and fatigue when they come home to rest. As an idle game, Yolk Heroes ensures your hero is cared for while you’re away, allowing players to queue tasks for their yolk to complete during some downtime.

Grow Your Hero

Following the proper preparations, your hero will be ready to begin their quest! Completing these adventures will earn you experience points to continue your training, new equipment to increase your stats, and currency to purchase additional items to aid you along your journey. Fuel up on different foods, purchase potions to temporarily buff your stats, and customize your armour set to reflect your class and attributes. As you explore, uncover new areas around the map, including hidden dungeons with secret treasures. Different NPCs await your help around the region, and the Frog Lord awaits you as a final challenge!

Play While You’re Away

As an idle game, players can progress in Yolk Heroes even while they’re away. Queue actions–or enable auto-queue–to keep your hero busy. When you leave the game running in the background, your progress will continue until you return. If you fail to care for your elf or repeatedly fall in battle, your hero will return to the guild for further training and care. Whether you close out of the game or leave it to return later, the game will remember your progress. The realm wasn’t built in one day, after all.
