    Exclusive Interview: Ship of Heroes: Mission Control

    By Nephthys on 0

    What's an MMO, especially a superhero MMO, without missions? Going in, beating up the bad guys, saving the day - that's what being a hero is all about. Today, the Ship of Heroes team has gone into more depth about how their mission instancing will work, and I was lucky enough to catch up with Casey McGeever for a few more details about several things including the creation of the game and their difficulty sliders. But whatever happens, it needs to be FUN. This video showcases the current stage Read More »

    By Nephthys on 0

    What better time than the heat of midsummer to show off some upgraded muscle action? The Ship of Heroes team agrees, and has pushed out some male model improvements that really pop. And this isn't just a simple reskinning! Extensive work went into the model upgrades beyond simple texturing, the model geometry, rigging and normal maps were all reworked to make these improvements affect every step of character creation and display. The most intriguing part of this character upgrade was a single line hidden Read More »

    By Nephthys on 0

    After several months of buildup, Ship of Heroes finally opened the doors to its kickstarter. Fans donated over 35k to the project before Casey McGeever, CEO of Heroic Games decided to take another approach to launching the game and canceled the fundraiser. Kickstarting MMOs is very common these days, especially for indie developers. It is much more difficult to pull off a successful kickstarter than it was, however, and it seems like every day that difficulty level rises. This decision in no way impacted the Read More »

    I've told you a bit about the gameplay of upcoming superhero game Ship of Heroes, and about the lore. Now it's finally time to look at some actual gameplay. And it's even a fire blaster! By far my favorite combat powerset in the much beloved City of Heroes, this demo even displays a version of one of my favorite of favorites: Rain of Fire.

    [Exclusive] Ship of Heroes: Dev Q&A - The Settings and Lore Edition

    By Nephthys on 0

    I discussed AI, powers, day jobs and character generation in my previous article, but that was only half of the conversation I had with Casey McGeever, CEO of Heroic Games and Matthew Wilson, lead developer of the upcoming Ship of Heroes. What I learned of the setting and lore reminded me at times of sci fi classics like Ender's Game, Heinlein's Orphans of the Sky and Aldiss' Non-Stop; although rather than the erosion of society and knowledge that they portray, Ship of Heroes depicts a bright Read More »

I'd already been looking forward to Ship of Heroes, but I left our conversation downright excited. This is the game Read More »

    By Nephthys on 0

    City of Heroes ... just the name has a powerful effect upon those who played it. Its loss is still lamented and mourned years after NCSoft shut the servers down, and it has spawned several projects that aim to be its spiritual successor. Ship of Heroes is one such game. Even without knowing that goal, just looking over its page brings echoes of CoH to mind, and not simply because of the shared superheroes theme. They have been slowly rolling out information about the game, and yesterday a new signature NPC Read More »
