About Sanguine Heir

Sanguine Heir is a loot-based ARPG Hack-n-Slash Dungeon Crawler inspired by PC games of the early 2000s. Sanguine Heir uses a keyboard and mouse based control scheme as opposed to a traditional mouse-based control scheme to be more familiar and easy to pick up for a contemporary audience. Combat in Sanguine Heir revolves around your 6 skill slots into which you can socket any of your attack skills. The power of these attacks is augmented by your passive skills and currently equipped items.

Main Features

Sanguine Heir features

  • 3 different classes that each have unique abilities, allowing for multiple different playthroughs. Each class has 15 different skills that can be upgraded up to 20 times, allowing for true freedom in playstyle.
  • “Terror Realm” dungeon that randomly combines level layouts, allowing for over 100 million unique combinations
  • Loot that is no longer wanted can be turned into tokens which can be used to purchase weapons of a higher rarity, eliminating the need to grind for hours to get legendary weapons
