As Mech WarsEdit
VG Heroes originally started as a Strategy-RPG game named Mech Wars.It was made in RPG Maker VX Ace Lite and was very different.The main character was still named Zexel,but instead had blue hair.The game's theme was about battles with mechs and took place in the future.
Although Mech Wars never took off,it was later inspired for a game called Digital Wars.
As Video Game Heroes Unite!Edit
The game soon took a very different direction.The game was renamed Video Game Heroes Unite! and the theme was instead about a person that goes through various worlds based off various video game series.The gameplay was still a Strategy-RPG.This theme was inspired by Kingdom Hearts and another RPG Maker VX Ace game Virtual Quest(Previously named Parallel Darkness).Zexel instead had red hair,blue eyes,and also had a sister named Cell.
Zexel also had a different shirt,which was black and had Super Famicom colors on it.He had dark grey shorts with light grey shoes.Cell also had a different look,with a black dress,long blue hair,and blue eyes.
There were still 9 worlds,including the subworlds.However the worlds were based off different games in the series the world is based on,instead of in the final game where the world is based off one game from that video game series.
The game did not get very far in production,but did have one world sort of completed.It was the Super Mario World.The gameplay was a strategy-RPG,but also had tactical-RPG elements with bosses in the game.Although the strategy-RPG element was eventually removed from the game due to Lite's limitations,the boss battle gameplay elements were later still put into the final game.
