There is a report on (thanks Marzhin) about the new mobile studio that was launched by Jon Van Caneghem, called VC Mobile Entertainment. He hopes to apply his experience in the gaming industry in a market where RPGs and strategy games have been very popular:

"Never before has there been a way to get to so many consumers so easily and so many people who are actually playing games on mobile devices."

JVC compares the mobile development field to the early days of PC gaming:

"it's a smaller team, less of a giant budget and there's a lot more chance to iterate, there's a lot more chance to be creative. And that's why I view this as such an exciting time for game design and development. It's not a 200-person, four-year endeavour to build a product."

There aren't any details about the games this new studio is working on. But feel free to make some predictions!

The saga continues!

Well, not really. But on my Youtube channel, you can now find this, the second gameplay video. Short this time, focusing on graphics. What I'm doing is play around with the graphics settings so you can see how the framerate behaves and how the graphics of the game changes with the alternate settings.

In my opinion, the effects seem good and don't change a whole lot when you turn the settings down a notch or two, but there are a couple of buttons you can push if the game is too resource demanding - while not taking away the good graphical experience.

Dear Heroes,

After weeks of advises, Dev Team give some news about next Tales for Heroes VII. It seems players want more information about Naga and the Lotus Empire, The Griffin family, and Sandro, the famous Necromancer.

We now have to wait more income from the Spy Master :)

Dear Heroes,

Some days ago, dev's team shows to the community bios and portrait of stronghold's hall of Heroes.
Some of them are present in the campaign, and all will be available in skirmish or multiplayer maps.
You can discover or rediscover them: Yog, Ishi, Drakon and Anga.
