Another batch of 2000 Beta-keys has been sent

hg_teambeta

We’ve just sent another 2000 Beta-keys.

We send keys on a first come, first serve basis, but we also send some keys to random players in order to be fair to newcomers.

So open your inbox and check if you’ve received a Beta-key! It can take up to a few hours for a mail to find it’s way, so remember to check again later today and also check your junk/spam folder.

As usual – new keys will go out next week!

Intelligence Bulletin Vol 2 * No 33

intelligencebulletingvol02no33 We’ve kicked off a new initiative this week in collaboration with community member Dondergod, where we’ll try out a community driven “H&G Newspaper” with stories related to the game and the wars being played out. We’re very excited about this and we hope that you’ll all back the initiative up and send great war stories, fan art, etc. to Dondergod. Read more about it here.

The Eisenhower build is slowly crawling its way towards the live server, but it’s not yet ready to take the giant leap. We still have a few nasty bugs that needs to be sorted out, and the match making system still needs a bit of usability tuning. But it’s about to leave the test-server and onwards to the stable server.

H&G Newspaper Special 1: We need you!

From the desk of Reto.Robotron3000:

As part of our development we hear a lot of great stories from the game, we are starting to see fan-art and fan-fiction and we thought: “Hey! We should have a way for more players to read the stories, see the fan-art etc.” So when Dondergod approached us with an idea for a “game news service”/”War Reporter” setup we decided to give it a go. All feedback is welcome and if we find things we need to implement in the game to facilitate the story-telling we’ll look into that as well.

So without further ado, over to you Dondergod in the newsroom.

Hello Heroes and Generals!

I am very proud to announce H&G’s first newspaper special!

In this special edition, I want to do a shout-out to everyone in the community to send me stories about the war progress, about a battle they fought in, about an action their clan did. But also about your own life, about stories of weapons you own, bullets you own. You can send me fan-fiction about this game. Hell, you can send me a story about your cat!

The First Sound for the Strategy Game

To give you an idea of the process of creating the first sound for the strategy game I have created this short video.

The sound in question is an indication for when one of your assault teams engages the enemy.

  1. I think of this sound as one that needs to grab you attention and inform you that something important is happening. To achieve this I have used a deep impact sound with some metal sound on top.

Intelligence Bulletin Vol 2 * No 32

intelligencebulletingvol02no32 Well, this week’s Bulletin is a bit delayed as we held a Friday Bar at Reto-Moto, and weren’t physically or mentally capable of writing anything comprehensible during the weekend.

So apologies for this short and delayed Bulletin – the team is now (almost) assembled again after a hard battle in the trenches, fighting mainly Polish beverages.

The Eisenhower build is still on our internal test server, but we hope soon to be able to deploy it to the stable server.

And as a last note – Beta-keys will probably be sent Wednesday or Thursday instead of Tuesday this week.

Cheers!
