Default Heroes of Steel - turn based strategy (Trese Brothers)

Quote:
Heroes of Steel is a turn-based strategy game in which you will control a squad of up to four characters. Each character is controlled individually and can move around the area map on their own, or together for safety -- thatís up to your tactics. Heroes draws from a mix of inspirations, such as complex pen and paper role playing games, some of our favorite and classic board games, and tabletop wargames.

The KickStarter wrapped up in early March, and we were lucky enough to hit our big stretch goal at $20,000. That stretch goal was Epic Platform Pack, which means we will deliver HoS to iOS, Android, OUYA, and desktop platforms. This set our timeline back by a few months, and we are currently looking at Alpha Access being available by August. There will be a pretty extensive Alpha period, giving our 41 Alpha team members real up-front preview of the game, story, and a chance to help us drive enhancements and polish the game.

The KickStarter rewards are still available through PayPal if you'd like to join that very exclusive club of Alpha Access Team.

"our 41 Alpha team members"

That sounds like a group that has their own custom jackets. So like September for us non elite, non alpha people?

@actionrpg8000 - yes, in fact 23 of the Alpha Access team will get exclusive Heroes of Steel t-shirts. The game was funded by KickStarter, and the Alpha Access team was the $100 reward, $150 got you the T-Shirt.

You can read a ton more about the game at the KickStarter page and by looking through the 30+ updates if you are interested.

Alpha will be a pretty exciting and unique experience. I am not sure how long it will run!

Over the life of the project, I have shared a number of pieces of short fiction on the KickStarter:

Wooops! Sorry, the fantasy world is actually called Steel. Even if its fantasy RPG, still of interest? Post-apocalyptic RPG?

Looks very interesting. Star Traders is an excellent game, so I'll definitely watch this one!
