The Hero We Need

The Hero We Need is an erotic rpg game full of transformations and 'bad endings'. It revolves around the transformed heroine Bernida cursed with womanhood, who must travel the fantasy land of Magisteria on her adventure in order to stop evil Users, save others and ultimately defeat the evil Demon Queen, Dark Lord Heliot. Currently with well over a hundred bad endings, the game includes Corruption, Hypnosis, Transformations and Heavy Transformation elements, mental changes, twinning/cloning, assimilation, latex and rubber. Additional non-game over endings and transformations are unlockable via the "Purification System" that allows you to earn purity points by purifying corrupted subjects, which can be spent on costumes, special potions and additional erotic scenes once properly unlocked. Features extensive spritework and added artwork throughout the game.  

The game is currently a work in progress and constantly updating, players can get beta testing and newer updates not quite public yet from Patreon support.

The game seems to be updated quite frequently, so I decided to give it a try. After a rather lengthy, and extremely dialogue heavy, introduction where you are shown off to the game's frequent non-choice "choices" the game gets you into some very generic area maps filled with NPCs who, in many cases, don't even have default dialogue set. And this is just the beginning. I ran into 2 "game over transformation scenes" one after having to complete a rather stupid mini-game of sorts and the other after getting blasted with another dose of the game's frequent use of the hypnosis spell effects -- and from what I could tell in that second one it wasn't even the MC or his companion who were the ones TF but some other random person. I will also have to admit, like  I was with MOnline, I don't really like TF "game overs" but... MOnline does them better if that's your thing.

The game seems to try to make fun of itself in some places, but the times where it does just kind of fall flat and aren't very funny. The writing, in general, is okay at best and from the limited time I spent with the game before losing interest, I found many of the characters... just kind of dull and unlikable. Could they change and become fantastic in the future? Sure, they could. But, I didn't really feel compelled enough by the game to be hooked and want to keep on playing to find out.

5.8.7 isn't working- after the scene where the two are fighting each other and it cuts to a whole group of demons, it crashes after saying failed to extract some facial set or something

5.85 doesn't work. I just receive blackscreen on startup.

This is probably my most favourite game on this site. The MC themes are delivered in a variety of ways that feels intriguing and stimulating and the way they were written and executed there was nary a scene which didn't sell its TF. the game's use of RPGMaker's effects and sprites to execute these MC/TF scenes were surprisingly effective in their simplicity and I found them very engaging. i particularly enjoyed the player character, main antagonist and luma; i found them to be well defined characters and their interactions i found to be very interesting.

the gameplay is a tad repetitive, with some areas being a little frustrating. the forgetful meadows was just too much for me to get thru on account of how rapidly enemies would spawn and i encountered a few bugs that halted my progress (e.g. the gravemaker boss not spawning). additionally some puzzles were a little hard to get my head fully around but for the most part didn't ruin my enjoyment. i also wouldn't mind seeing some rpg elements simplified a tad such as items or skills to possibly streamline the gameplay elements. 

if you enjoy MC content, good writing and the fragile and ever-changing state of the human psyche under great duress i highly recommend this game.


tldr very hot fun game, lots of great things, many good scenes, play it

Game version 0.4.

I am stuck in the labyrinth with Luma this happens after our Heroine has a split personality and it you unlock the ending #68 - 'Putting the past Behind us'.

I try every possible way to get out but I am stuck and can't find a solution.

I even tried to prevent this event to happen but I end there this means I am stuck and impossible for me to beat the game and that sucks.


The hints next to entrance is not helping. I don't understand it.
