Hero Academy Released!

Hero Academy by Robot Entertainment

I'm very happy to announce Robot Entertainment's 3rd game release of the year: Hero Academy! The best part is that the past 2 years I've probably only worked two weeks of crunch. Robot is such a great place to work, and I think it really comes though in our games.

I did a little animation on this one, but mostly tech work; including, writing the animation exporter and a Photoshop exporter. Hero Academy is free, but not free in a FarmVille sense. The social aspects involve making your opponent feel helpless and spamming taunts. :)

About the game:
Hero Academy is a free multiplayer tactics game for iOS from the strategy veterans behind Age of Empires and Orcs Must Die! The Council is a free team for all players. The Dark Elves can be purchased, and have different mechanics, but are balanced so that all players have an enjoyable experience. Purchasing the Dark Elves (or any future team) will remove ads from the game. Additional teams will be released for Hero Academy over time. All purchases beyond the teams are cosmetic in nature and do not affect gameplay.  Players may customize their heroic teams with team colors, avatars and taunt animations.

SpaceNapped! Crew

I'm excited to start work on the first chapter of SpaceNapped! The first chapter will be a 24 page series, with a new page released each week. This image is a rough design of Captain West, Model S2, Dora Amano, and Prince Neeto. These are the four main characters aboard the UF4. Dora Amano is the ace pilot. The Model S2 takes care of the engineering duties. Prince Neeto is the brains of the operation. And Captain West… I'm sure he does something.
