The closed alpha is now available!

Greetings future tester,

After more than a year and a half of intense production by our team of mighty geeky knights in Development and Art, we are pleased to announce that the Energy Heroes closed alpha is now available!

Thank you very much for your support during the production, but now is the time to play! Players who receive an alpha key may have access to the following features:

We ask the alpha testers to keep in mind that the game is in alpha 1.0 stage and will evolve a lot over the next months. Alpha testers should report any bug or problem they may encounter using our support page.

We will pay close attention to your reports, your impressions and your comments in order to make the game evolve the way you would like it to be. Don’t hesitate to share your opinion and communicate with us via the forum or on our social pages #EHGame_alpha. Thank you in advance!

New alpha keys will be distributed over the next weeks so new players may join the Energy Heroes community. Keep an eye on social networks and on the official website, keys may be hidden there ;). Meantime, have fun and above all “Change the way you fight!”.

Some energium for evolution

Hi there! We meet again to talk this time about one of the Energy Heroes gameplay features which will, without any doubt, spice up the game a little bit.

When a game starts, both bases begin with level one entities which do not make coffee and simply do what is written on their instructions: towers shoot enemies, the Energy Gate powers up minions who then go for a little walk in the fields. The ship itself is at its maximal level from the start: pew pew, shopping.

Energium is what makes the world go around for the Qen’Ory and the E’Nyhm, and mercenaries will be sent on Syrh in order to take part in the conflict resulting from it. Jorvak engineers installed a module inside Stage 375 that simulates the conditions and situations mercenaries will face on Syrh. This module which is on the first floor is in fact a room containing a resource stockroom (and a nice space view too).

EntityEvolution_01

This resource stockroom produces energium during a game. Players may gather it and bring it back to their bases in order to stock it and unlock upgrades for their buildings. Beware, if the player is hit while carrying energium, he will drop a bit of it.

During a game, your team may be able to buy some or all of the available upgrades, and keep in mind: the last one is really powerful.

Here is the upgrade tree available for the alpha:

EntityEvolution_01

Of course, we worked hard to make all of these upgrades visually and easily identifiable in-game.

EntityEvolution_02

This already unlocked pack at the start of a game is comprised of 2 towers, one Energy Gate and a colonization module which can create minions.

EntityEvolution_03-2The tower’s core is upgraded, making the tower’s shots more powerful.

EntityEvolution_03-1Minions’ core are upgraded, their attack is more powerful when powered up at the Energy Gate.

EntityEvolution_04-2

The tower core is powerful enough to generate a shield around itself. This shield must be destroyed, beware though, given enough time it will replenish even if it has been destroyed.

EntityEvolution_04-1Minions’ cores are upgraded, making them more resistant.

EntityEvolution_05-1The tower core is so powerful that its attack now have an area of effect!

That’s all about entities’ upgrades available during the Energy Heroes alpha which will start in two days! If you have an alpha key, you may take part in it.

And by the way, someone dropped this on my desk, you might find a use for it! 😉 ALPHW1-G1CF-3HQ5-ESSV

See you soon!

Local Alpha Test #1

Greetings! After a long rush period, we are back on the devblog to speak about the test session which took place last week at our studio!

Last weekend, we accepted about fifty people to realize a first wave of tests on Energy Heroes. It was an occasion for us to see how the principles of the game are welcomed by the players. An occasion to go out from the production routine and to see the defiant bugs we will have to track until gotten rid of.

Alpha_01We received a lot of feedback that we will take into account! Let’s do a quick review of it. The game concept has been really well greeted by the players, and this is awesome! There remains some feedback gaps on the HUD, but we’re already working on it, including some bugs that made our developer die twice during the test session (we had to rez him, twice). However nothing too serious. We are ready for the next step, called «Debug, debug, debug, pursuit of the operations»!

For the most curious of you, the alpha tester could test:

  • The quasi entire 3v3 map, called «Stage 375» and its features,
  • Two «finished» characters: Kurt and Cornalyx,
  • Two characters not fully implemented: Azura and Spade.

Alpha_02The DSC Studio22 team wants to thank every person that made the move and fulfilled their duty of alpha tester! We want especially to thank the ECV students and their teacher Adrien of the Black Flag studio, the association Mandora and Flat226 for their help and their support!

Stronger than ever, we are more than motivated to engage in the upcoming events, such as the online alpha test (yes, yes), to test our servers and our out of the game system.

We will catch up soon to speak about the upcoming festivities… Stay tuned! 😉
