Come and play the Ship of Heroes demo on Steam as we participate in Steam Next Fest, Oct 9 through October 16. This will be our 10th public event, and it is completely free. Three times a year, Steam holds Next Fest, a game festival where studios can let the public play a demo of their unpublished games. Each game can only participate once. Players typically come in and try out a demo for anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or more, but there’s no actual time limit.
The Plasma Cannon Defense is an exciting challenge mission, one of the missions currently under development. We are using it here to illustrate the massive size of the spaceship FHS Justice. A cramped shuttle craft it is not! We are also adding to our social media presence: Ship of Heroes is now present on eight social media platforms, in addition to the forums on the SoH website.
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.
Sign up here to join the upcoming mission Beta event. This time we’re showing off three new kinds of mission content: story arcs, challenge missions, and holiday missions.
We’ve been working hard to set up another Ship of Heroes Beta event, and now the time is approaching. We have wanted to show off a full mission arc for some time, as well as some other missions. It did take longer to bugfix than we had hoped, but you can expect to try out these missions in late June or July. We are showing off the first Iris mission arc, which has several branching choices that can interact in complex ways – more on that in a future newsletter.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We’ve had a great year at Heroic Games, filled with additions, improvements, and community events. Here are the highlights of a busy year.
