9 posts in and still NOBODY knows or posted any information about the game.

It's a multi-player, asynch tactics game. You can learn more about the game, including seeing a gameplay video, here:http://www.robotentertainment.com/games/heroacademy

It's free. With the free game, you can play the full game as the Council (human) team. You can buy the Dark Elves team for 99 cents currently and that turns off ads. Anything else to buy in the game is purely cosmetic.

Impressions? Well, I'm one of the devs behind the game so I'll leave that to you guys

So is this freemium model like kard combat? That you buy more of expansion packs rather than traditional IAP models.

Essentially, yes. Your main thing that you'll be buying, if you choose to, will be new teams. But we're going through a lot of work to balance each team's unique abilities and special items to ensure that you don't HAVE to buy teams to be competitive.

We do have more teams planned, but havent announced who they are just yet. We'll have a sneak perk at the third team relatively soon.
