Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising Features

  • gods&heroes_combatscreenshot07
    I’ll 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.

    Curious about a game that never made it to the retail shelves, or shut down before it had its chance to shine?

    Few games get a second chance once they fall into the abyss, but Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising is one of the lucky few.

    on the matter with this new editorial, Foes of Rome!

    There are several new games, asides from Gods and Heroes, which
    are going to be filling (or are filling now) the online role playing
    game “niche” over the next year or so.

  • I wouldn't say lazy... more like work-averse.

    Ever wonder just what was in all those Gods and Heroes beta journals Perpetual released, but were too lazy to look for yourself? Well there's no need to fear! Here at Ten Ton Hammer, we've made it easy by rounding up the best the journals have to offer, and bringing it to you!

    In this journal, the tester let us know how much they hated

    and seemed to love it, all thanks to the minions. As they put it "...The
