Heroic Dregs

This is a demo for Heroic Dregs, a top-down horde slaying game inspired by Vampire Survivors. The horde is ever-marching and powered by Unity ECS, so get ready to fight hundreds of enemies at once! Your goal is to survive for 10 minutes.

We currently have 1 map, 1 character with two main abilities, and a large selection of runes, passive abilities, and ability modifiers to upgrade your hero with to survive the horde!


  • A huge horde of enemies; by the end of it, your body count will be in the thousands.
  • An upgrade system that allows you to make a variety of builds on each playthrough!
  • Satisfying (we hope) gameplay.
  • An exploding Gnome!
  • Survive for 10 minutes and review your kill count and level at the end.


WASD - movement

Left click/right click - main ability/secondary ability

Tab - view upgrades

Due to the current temperamental nature of Unity ECS we are aware that the fireball can cause crashing on occasion. We have tried our best to reduce the issue but despite this, crashing may still occur when using the fireball.
