PAX West Panel Discussion
The discussion took place on Sunday, September 3rd in the Cat Theater, during the PAX West 2017 convention. The panel was moderated by Bicycle Walrus of DM21 Gaming, a gaming channel on YouTube.
Casey McGeever, CEO of Heroic Games, presented slides showing the key features that Ship of Heroes feels are critical to its success:
McGeever also revealed the current planned schedule for testing and community, including:
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 Three times a year, Steam holds Next Fest, a game festival where studios can let the public play a demo of their unpublished games.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.
Registration for our second player housing Beta is now open. The Beta will run from July 22nd to July 31st, 2022. Our player housing system has been radically upgraded since our first housing Beta in May!
The May 5th-8th Housing Beta Event has concluded, and it was a huge success! Housing isn’t for everyone, but hundreds of people signed up, jumped into Apotheosis City, and play-tested the housing system, not to mention those who shared their stories on the forums, by email, or by answering the post-Beta survey. So, thanks! You’re helping us to create the kind of game people will want to play.
