15 viestiä aiheessa

Tervehdys Suomalaiset lentoveljet!

 

Olemme kehittelemässä uutta strategiapeliä, josta löydät lisäinfoa linkeistä, joita tuohon lisäsin. Aiheena on Toinen maailmansota, joista työn alla ovat Normandian maihinnousu ja Tali-Ihantalan taistelu. Alphavaihe on kohta käsillä

ja käsittää Normandiasta tuon Omahan kaistan, muut rantakaistat on työn alla, samoin kuin tuo Tali-Ihantala, joka on tosin aikalailla vielä lähtökuopissaan. Alpha-vaihe on siis tulossa ja muuten aikataulutus on sellainen, että tuotteen

pitäisi olla valmis tulevan syksyn aikana.

 

Miksi laitan Teille viestiä? Virtuaalilentäjiä yleensä yhdistää kiinnostus historiaan, varsinkin sotahistoriaan. Historiallinen tarkkuus esimerkiksi joukko-osastojen määrä, varustus, huolto tms haastavat kaikki koti-Rommelit/Pattonit

yrittämään, jos historian voisi kirjoittaa uusiksi.

 

Muiden pelien yhdistämistä tämän pelin yhteyteen/rinnalle tutkitaan!

 

Olen aktivoitumassa takaisin tuonne virtuaalitaivaalle, joten jos kaipaat lisätietoa, nykäise hihasta joko pagerin kautta(lobby) tai TS:ssä, tai sitten voit laittaa lisätiedon tarpeessa kysymyksiä tai ehdotuksia s-postiosoitteeseen:

WW2OL -tyyppinen peli yhdistettynä tähän olisi loistava kokonaisuus. Selaimella hoidetaan (vaikka töistä käsin :o ) grand strategy samalla kun FPS-pelaajat toteuttavat strategiaa taktisella tasolla virtuaalisella taistelukentällä. WW2OL on hyvä esimerkki siitä miten pelimekaanisia ratkaisuja EI tule toteuttaa, joten sitä kannattaa kyllä tutkia.

Hello!

 

Here are some news concerning about Hours of War´s development status at this point. We have had few alpha tests, where we have tested basic moves and some basic elements of combat (attack, defend, indirect fire). We received good and constructive info from the testers which parts of the game at this point should be developed and upgraded!

 

As I said earlier, we opened our site couple of weeks ago, and you are more than welcome to join in. We would appreciate a lot, if you have something to say, ask or maybe start a new thread to our site!

 

We added some new screenshots to our site. Screenshots are not the only thing we added to our site, there is also the first official teaser of the game and it is also uploaded to the Youtube. Here are links both to our site and to the Youtube:

Attention Officers!

 

Here is a short briefing about the Hours of War:

 

* We have a new video preview demonstrating where the client design is heading! ( link:

)

 

* Scheduled Alpha tests have provided valuable feedback and influenced the development. Throughout our tests, the servers and client have been stable. We have had some issues with authentication and chat but working with our team of   testers, we have solved most of the bugs. Currently our development efforts are focused on the client design and visual feedback. We are also working on improving the in-game chat functionality and the necessary strategy and planning  tools for higher ranked players managing the battles. We are working extremely hard  to complete the Open Beta version and launch it.

 

* We have just opened a new forum, where you are able to discuss the game in your own language: (link: http://www.hoursofwar.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=15 ). In the beginning we will support the following languages: Danish, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Norwegian, Spanish, Russian and Swedish.

 

Salute
