Local testers wanted for Star Hammer VP iPad Beta, plus Manta Update details!

StarHammerVP-MantaUpdate2

There’s still time to sign up to defend the planet Novus, in the iPad beta for Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy. Diligently working away, the star gazers at Black Lab Games have not only released a massive update recently on Steam, they’ve also created a handy sign up form for their iPad beta.

First up, the Manta update for Star Hammer on Steam sees new four new skirmish maps, a skirmish highscore feature, tons of visual updates and balancing, and of course a brand new ship…

Sometimes you just need to zero the hostiles completely; demolition, destruction, absolute tactical oblivion. That’s where the brand new Manta-class light cruiser comes in.
Four dedicated missile launch bays means the Manta can ruin your opponent’s day like nothing else in the fleet. Either let the guided payloads find four different targets, or focus fire on a single mark for scorched earth tactics.

As for the iPad beta, they have simplified the process of getting out into space with a simple online sign up form. The studio are particularly interested in sourcing local (Perth) testers; this is a great opportunity for students looking to get some testing expeience, not to mention a fun way to get your hands on the game before it hits the Perth Games Festival.

So if you reckon the Coalition can count on you to fight the onslaught of enemy space squids, now is the time to put your hand up and join Valeron’s crew in saving Novus!

Website update

You may have noticed the visual overhaul of the Let’s Make Games website. Hopefully it comes across as a lot brighter and a bit more professional.

Aside from new visuals, we’ve been working to improve site content. We’ve created an Events page, updated content on the About page, and added a whole bunch of links (which should appear on the right-most column).

Please take a few minutes to check out the links section and let us know if there are any other sites that should be included. Chiefly, we want to ensure that our list of local game developers is as comprehensive as possible!

If you are a local developer, please contact us so that we can include a brief (company, group, or individual) bio in our upcoming report.
