Today we’d like to update all of you on player housing and base-building, a new feature in Ship of Heroes. We think that every superhero needs a cool, secret lair, or a place to meet up with allies, or just a chill place to hang out and drink a cold one.
Ship of Heroes is looking to a launch at the end of 2022, and between now and then, we’re going to have our seventh public Beta, focusing on superhero bases. But first, we’re pleased to announce that Massively Overpowered has selected us as the 2021 Indie MMO of the Year. Thank you, Massively Overpowered!
Happy Halloween to everyone reading this newsletter. We’ve published a new Halloween video showing our version of Trick or Treat, this time in the Science Park area of Apotheosis City. But remember, the tricks bring out some tough monsters, especially when this six-man team goes door-to-door. Magic is more powerful in space than on planets, so magical side-effects are magnified as well.
Far more people signed up than expected – this was our largest Beta ever, by far! The vast majority of participants report that they had fun playing the missions in SoH. That’s the main measure of success. Player comments have been very positive, beyond the usual little hiccups and suggestions for improvements.
We’re showing off a massive boss fight in Showdown, the final mission of the Iris arc. The Iris mission arc is available to everyone who registers for the event. Donors are in the game now, playtesting the content to look for bugs, and non-donors will be allowed in on August 14th.
