Numen: Contest of Heroes is a 2010 video game developed by the Czech company Cinemax.[2]


Numen a Greek mythology-themed action role-playing game. The player's character levels up by killing monsters and completing quests, upon which their abilities improve. Some skills improve automatically based on the abilities performed, but the player may also allocate points. Combat is real-time, but the mechanics are likened more to those of MMORPGs rather than the hack and slash genre.[3]


Numen was developed using the CPAL3D engine.[4]
