Haven’t you always wished chess had more rocket launchers? Hero Academy, a turn-based strategy game from Robot Entertainment is probably about as close as you’re going to get. It originated on iOS mobile devices, and the PC version includes cross-platform play against the mobile crowd who have had it for a while now.
Hero Academy, Robot Entertainment's tactical, turn-based team battle game is coming to Steam on August 8th, and it's bringing some PC gaming all-stars with it. The entire Team Fortress 2 crew we know and love (and sometimes hate...I'm looking at you, Spy) will be playable. Hop inside to see how they fit into Hero Academy, and check out the TF2 hats you can get by playing it.
Have I told you how brilliant Orcs Must Die! is recently? I probably have, I say it a lot. Did you know the developers, Robot Entertainment also made an IOS turn based battle game called Hero Academy? Well if you didn't, now you do, and you should also know that Eurogamer are reporting that it's coming to Steam.
That's not all either. The Steam version of the game will apparently cross platform play with the IOS version, letting you show those trendy Apple folk just who knows more about turn based combat. Oh, and if you own the game on both formats, they'll sync up too. Also, getting the PC version gives you a new squad of heroes based on adorable big headed versions of Team Fortress 2 characters. There's nothing about this announcement that isn't brilliant.
