Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!!

For those of you celebrating this year, we’d love to hear what you’re going as! I hope those that are have plenty of fun festivities planned! Also, remember when Steph made this awesome jack-o-lantern? Any of you carve an awesome one this year??

For those of you that haven’t already noticed, recent comments display is once again on the blog located on the right sidebar. Ask and thou shall receive! Blog archive links have been added just below that. I’ve also beefed up a lot of back-end security for the blog after a few days of increased spam activity for it and the site in general, so that’s been fun..

Hope everyone has an awesome Halloween/Thursday! Updates are coming! Thanks for always being so awesome and for the constant support!

NOW LETS HEAR ABOUT SOME OF THESE COSTUMES! ;)

Technical Difficulties

Due to a technology-related fail on my part, some of you may have noticed that we essentially disappeared for a few days.. No fear, we’re back and kicking butt again. We apologize for the random Houdini act!

(If you didn’t notice anything, replace what you just read with something awesome in your head. Like dragons.)

Thoughts?

New Website!

So, lots going on, not all of which I can talk about yet.. New game news is coming as soon as a few more things are finalized, but until then…

The new website has been live for a little bit over a month now, and I thought it’d be a good time to get any feedback you guys might have. Like something? LOVE something? Hate something? Find something annoying? Wish something was different? Suggestions for future features we can push live? I’m looking for all of the above. We’ve obviously got a ton of possible ideas for the future, including user accounts, achievements, beta testing area, etc etc… But now’s your time to get your word in and possibly have some influence on the direction of the Hero Interactive website as we move forward!

Aaaaaaand GO!

Friday For-Fun Poll

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Friday again.. Time flies when you’re having fun!

Anyway, I’ve got a quick poll for you guys. I found myself playing Pirate Defense today and then before I knew it I was in an awesome-loop of playing all of our old games back-to-back. It was good times.

The blog poll-plugin doesn’t seem to work anymore, so we’ll have to have this be an open-poll like last time. Just leave a comment! So, for-fun poll question:

 
Which Hero Interactive game would you most like to see a sequel to that doesn’t already have one?

Quick Post

Hey guys!

Really quick / random post… I was just in the middle of a few things and realized that I never announced on here that Bubble Tanks 3 got quests on Armor Games. It’s been about a month or so, so this possibly is old news for some of you, but I was in the middle of implementing AG quests there for another game, so I thought I’d mention it quick ;)

Play it up!

New Blog Look

Monday Monday Monday…

In case you haven’t already noticed, the blog looks a bit different now. I decided it’d be better for the blog to actually look like it’s apart of the rest of the website rather than just a stand-alone page with its own theme / look.. Done and done. I also updated the fan art page, so check that out if you want, as well!

Let me know what you think!

Video Fan Art

Hey guys!

Someone just sent me this video fan art link from 2010 and I wanted to share its awesomeness. I’m not entirely sure who exactly made it, but it’s pretty cool actually watching someone draw the fan art in front of your eyes! Check it out!

    I’ll get a link to it thrown up on the fan art page so that you can still find it easily after this post gets buried. If I forget, someone yell at me until I do.

    Open Ended For-Fun Poll

    Hero Interactive

    This past weekend someone asked me “If you could make just one of your games into a movie, what would it be?

    I responded with StormWinds, as I could see that being pretty awesome and I’ve always sorta pictured a lot of the characters from the series as being somewhat comparable to those in the movie Warriors of the Wind. This conversation then moved on to contemplating how ridiculous some of Hero’s other games would be as movies..

    In any case, I was curious to see what others’ answers would be. So, if you could have any Hero Interactive game become a movie, what would it be?

    Hero Fan Art Page

    Hey guys!

    We’ve got a busy week ahead of us over here, so to ease into the workload I thought I’d start it off with something light… Boom! There’s now a designated page on the site for fan art.

    So, if you’re over the age of 13 (COPPA) and have a Hero Interactive related work of art you’d like to be featured on this page, email us your masterpiece at contact@herointeractive.com and we’ll add it! We’ve gotten some really cool stuff in the past and we’d love to see what else you guys have got for us to see!

    (Additionally, we’ve lost a lot of the fan art we’ve posted on the blog in years past due to technical issues.. If you are aware of any past fan art whereabouts, please let us know!)

    Audio Player

    Happy Friday!

    Well, I accidentally already added a few features to the audio player I uploaded to the website on Wednesday, including loading optimizations, audio visualizer, and pop-out window option. Nothing big, but I figured I’d mention it here.

    Hero Audio Player

    Audio Player

    Hey guys!

    Welp, so far this week has been filled with an abundance of planning, research, and headaches while we try to finalize the specifications surrounding our next game/project now that Bashing Grounds has been released. I can’t say too much about it yet, but I will say that we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. (Yay work!)
     

    BUT…

    I made you guys something to play around with while we get our crap together.

    We’ve gotten lots of requests from people over the years regarding our game music, so on Saturday I threw together an audio player for the site.

    As of right now, it’s extremely simple, but I’ll likely add more functionality to it as time goes by and let you guys know about it here as I do (Pop-out player ability? Audio visualizations? Playlist control?). Once we get user accounts up and running on the site there will be a lot more I can do with it, honestly.

    For now, at the very least you no longer have to open a game and play/navigate to the part where the music you like is located. (And at the VERY very least, I had fun making it. So that’s something I guess..)

    If you’re looking for a specific track and can’t seem to find it, leave a comment and I’ll check to see if I forgot it or something.

    Alright, I’m done jabberin’. Enjoy.
