In topic The Big Catch Up Post!
Most likely we'll do private alpha for investors, then an open alpha and once all the tech is in place, launch Steam early access. We'll announce more details as we get closer.

In topic Things to Come (an update)
Game development is not a science, especially for a small indie team. The unexpected happens, like Unity suddenly deciding to make major changes to the engine with no warning, or members of the team being unavailable due to their "day job" or family/medical issues and when you have a small team, just one member being "AFK" affects progress a lot. This is why we have decided to not post dates for when things will be done because "stuff" happens and we don't have the resources like a larger studio might have to deal with it as quickly. That's just how it is.

Anyway, regarding the livestream, this is what I posted on the forums...

A number of factors have delayed doing a gameplay livestream, first and foremost the unexpected changes to Unity that required a lot of recoding, then people were traveling for various reasons including Mother's Day (of course) as well as our Producer having to travel for a top-secret meeting (no it wasn't Russians). :ohmy:

We also decided to spend a lot of time this past week on completely reconstructing the character generation process as recommended by our QA team who found some of it frustrating and not flowing well. Hopefully you will be able to judge if we got it right soon!

I'll talk to the team and see what we can do about a livestream this week. Stay tuned (literally).

The fact that ZeeHero is never around when I am fighting an alien invasion or monster attack and we've never been photographed together is a total coincidence! I swear! :steamhappy:

If you can't take a joke, the point is he does not work for SHS or is an alt account or whatever.

The forums and social media are where we post the most but like mentioned elsewhere we are preparing to move from Greenlight to official Steam forums.

Some additional notes...

If having install errors, then clean out everything (including the launcher shortcut and unzipped install files) and try again. Most important, delete the folder at c:\WindowsPlayer (unless you put it elsewhere).

We're aware of and working on three major bugs: blackout/darkness zones; no health regen; chatting but movement keys still function. Stay tuned!

We are doing our best to reply to social media posts and support emails but it's a holiday weekend so please be patient. The game was ready for testing and we figured people didn't want to wait until Monday. Thanks for your support and Happy Holidays!

In topic Updates!
Sorry it's been so quiet but here are a couple new posts from our blog. One has some news and pics and the other is about the "competition" between us and other people making superhero MMOs...

We're hoping to have our new website (with funding options) and/or server with updated build of the game up shortly. Stay tuned. :D

In topic Old CoX players plans?
We have over 80 power sets in various stages of development and will post a list soon. I'm not sure why you would say Storm powers would be unlikely. There is a character by that name and with those kind of powers in the comics and movies. I hear she is kind of popular or something. ;)

In topic IS this f2p?
Obviously we can't prove it, but that is our intention. We (the developers) all played City of Heroes and other MMOs that shut down and know the heartbreak of your online home and community being taken away so it is our intention to give people the ability to run their own servers should the game shutdown someday... of course we are currently in pre-alpha and we need to launch it first!

That being said, running a MMO server is not simple. It is not like running Minecraft. Down the line we will discuss it, this is of course way ahead of the game. There is some good discussion about running your own server over on the Asheron's Call forums where they are developing player servers they plan to release.
