Heroes of Kalevala - A brand new game from 10tons!

Just wanted to inform everyone about our upcoming game: Heroes of Kalevala. The main game is a state-of-the-art match-3 game with several new twists and a bunch of awesome powerups. We tried to create the experience as smooth and playable as possible. The match-3 game is closely tied to a village building game, which in turn affects the match-3 part. The goal was to create a modern and extensive match-3-village-building experience. We'll also have a storyline and characters inspired by the world famous myths of Kalevala.

The game will be out for iPhone and iPod touch during September 2010. The game will also have some graphics optimized for iPhone 4. Other platforms will also follow.

You can see some gameplay video here:

More videos, screenshots and other material will be released later!

I thought I'd also let you know that we also have a brand new official beta program. Even though we've beta tested HoK once already, I'm hoping we'll have time to do another test run still.

However, we're going to release several games for iPhone and iPad this fall so there's a great chance that one receives an invite to beta test an unreleased game. We'll randomly select a group of people with suitable devices to test games before the release. We're mainly looking for honest opinions and bug reports.

Kalevala is a Finnish book and an epic poem. A bit like the greek mythology, but different Kalevala is compiled from Finnish and Karelian folklore and it was first published around 1835.

More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalevala

You can read it online too: http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/kveng/

Yes, there will be an iPad version. The game will eventually come out on PC and Mac as well.

It seems we're running a bit late with the game. However, we should be ready by the end of September.

Here are two screenshots with the iPhone 4 retina display graphics:
