It's that special time of year where children dream of sugar plums and perfect strangers kiss under the mistletoe. As usual, most MMOs have holiday-themed events, and Ten Ton Hammer is here with part one of our seasonal wonderland showcase.
be the first to admit that when Heatwave Interactive
announced they had bought the rights and assets to the Roman
Mythological themed Gods & Heroes:
Rome Rising MMOG, I was
cautiously optimistic. I enjoyed the game years ago for the brief
amount of time I had spent in beta when it was being developed by
Perpetual Entertainment. However, with all of the events surrounding
its closure back then I had to wonder how Heatwave could bring the game
back to life and have it stand on its own two
feet—particularly given that the client was already a little
dated before Heatwave even got a chance to start working on it.
Shortly after the acquisition announcement the game entered into a
playable beta stage. At this point some of our Ten Ton Hammer Premium
members were on our Elite Testers list and began their job of providing
feedback and bug reports for the game. I have been a part of countless
beta tests for a myriad of games, but Heatwave presented Gods & Heroes
in its new and evolving state at GDC this year and I couldn’t
help but be thoroughly impressed.
