Numen: Contest of Heroes delivers a rich and expansive world with multiple paths to choose from. Actually, you can select who you are, what you are, what God you pray to, where you go and whether you help other heroes you meet or not. Calling upon the divine power of your patron, you imbue yourself with special strength and skill in a combat.
The nature and realm your god belongs to affects your style and behavior. You need to be very careful– during the quests you come up against bandits, a wide array of monsters varying from minor foes to formidable adversaries like snow giants, skeletons, and other magic creatures.
We’ve prepped a nice kit of these fresh assets– please grab them in the game gallery: http://en.akella.com/Game.aspx?id=2&mode=screenshots

With the strongest of these heroes will come the strongest immortal who will then be crowned the most powerful above all.
