HeroLand- an adventure built within Storyline (and only storyline)

Hi all, 

It's been an amazing year and with the latest developments from Articulate it's going to be another great one, however I wanted to show you all what can actually be done with Storyline 2 just by itself.  This is more of an experiment, but to be honest would (still might) be my entry if there is a Guru challenge this year.  But as things might be changing soon, I thought I'd give one last shoutout to one of the best design tools out there.

So here's the link - enjoy!

Sincerely, Rick

Heroland  is a thing of beauty - I am overcome with admiration and respect for Richard Hill.  Heroland is a Storyline Master class! What a phenomenal illustration of Storyline possibilities and e-learning development and a totally entertaining and engaging story too.

Richard, even though you shared how you did it, I am totally blown away by it all, from your concept to your execution. I love the fact that you can collect the scene codes and return to the training to access all of your narrated/illustrated tips on exactly how you created the animation for scenes, characters and events.Thank you for sharing it with us. I hope someday to grow to use at least some of what you were able demonstrate in Heroland.

For those who haven't yet clicked Richard Hill's link and taken the adventure to Heroland, stop, take a break and do so. You won't be disappointed.

Hey Nancy,  you may not have noticed but at the completion of each section a code is given for that level.  That way, if you don't finish your journey or you want to return to that level, just type in the code on the main page and be transported.  Type Key in the code field on the main page to see what I mean.  He did it all.  So many things to explore.

Wow Rick, just wow!  I know it's been said here many times, but this is easily one of the most impressive items I have seen created with SL.  I went through the piece several times, to enjoy and savor the many intricate things you designed into this work.  I can only imagine how much time this took you to build.  Well done good sir.

Wow, unbelievable! I ran into a major glitch near the tiki statue where I was able to go off the map into the white abyss and then up into the sky where I could not come back down (and the character display got a bit wonky, see image below) so I didn't finish the story, but really an amazing demo nonetheless.

Hey Chris! UR IN GOD MODE!!!!  ha.  Actually, it's something I've noticed when the connection stalls( or my site is busy), or if there are too many tabs open. You might have to  kill your browser cache and reload it. From my experience, "GOD MODE" is pretty boring.  my apologies.  : (

Pssst. But there is A LOT more to see!  You're not even at 25%
