Hey there fans of Might and Magic, long time, no see!
I just wanted to try and summarise some of the pretty awesome news that has been coming out of Lava Potion, developers of the much anticipated game Songs of Conquest lately. Oh, don't forget to look out for the competition in this post!

Firstly, we have a release date for Version 1.0 and that is May 20th. This is obviously huge news and as soon as I receive any updates on the release version I will try to do another article on it (unlike this article, which has been on my to-do list for weeks now... I'm sorry). This means that Heroes of Might and Magic fans out there will finally get to fully dive into this spiritual successor while we wait for Ubisoft announcing just about anything about this beloved franchise. From my own experience, Songs of Conquest not only managed to convince me that I am able to be fine with "pixel art", but it was one of few games released in the past 15 years that gave me that "just one more turn" feeling. Kudos to that!

On the 25th of April, the devs shared a Steam post about wanting the help of the community as they had managed to squish some significant AI bugs. If you want to contribute to the development of the game, you can do so by simply playing a map, keeping the following in mind:

I see myself as a:  <Difficulty> Player
I played with difficulty: <Difficulty>
On map: <Map Name>
Thoughts: (How did it feel, how many times did you reload, quick battles etc)

Your answer should be posted to this Steam Post

Speaking of maps, just about a month ago, the Lava Potion team also released 8 brand new maps which were a collaborative effort of the in-house devs and the community. Highlights include "Blades Edge", a balanced PvP arena for 2 players and "Ashen Allies", a co-op map without AI opponents which still offers a challenge by requiring players to team up against the treacherous environment. You can read the full post here. 

Songs of Conquest - Pixel Dragons wooh!
