Any future updates will be largely focused on your guys' feedback and content, as such - this may be the last beta build before release! So sign-up now and let me know what tweaks must be done to the game before launch!

Happy Holidays!

I want to wish everyone a happy holiday and hope that the new year brings good tidings to all!

 

There are a lot of exciting things happening for the studio in the new year:

Although next year will be incredible exciting, 2015 was pretty unforgettable:

Heroes Guard Beta is Live!

For those of you who signed up for the Heroes Guard: The Journal beta, it is now live!

Within the first hour, the game has already received a warm welcome from interactive fiction fans! My favorite quotes so far:

  • "I am really enjoying the game so far, and will definitely buy it when it comes out!"
  • "Got to try out the game; it was really good"
  • "General feedback: Awesome..."
  • "I am having fun with the beta testing and will easily want the complete version. "
  • "It is a lot of fun... and I can also see it being a neat way to get younger people to read more!"
  • "it was a really fun game!"

It's almost time for Beta!

Heroes Guard: The Journal is nearly ready for its very first beta! 

I'm excited and ever-so nervous to get it in front of real fans of the genre. Every alpha build has gone wonderful, and I could never be more thankful for my friends, family, and followers for the great feedback they have provided so far!

What does beta mean for Heroes Guard? Well, the game is only half-polished - initially focusing on ensuring the story aspects are working as attended for launch. The card combat portion will be the focus for Beta #2. Not to mention, a lot more content is expected for full release!

I'll specifically be reaching out to well-known communities in the interactive fiction world  in hopes of collecting their love or hate of the game.

This whole process has been nerve-racking and wonderful at the same time.  Thank you all for coming along with me on this journey!

You can sign-up for beta here!
