Thanksgiving is that time of year when we stop what we’re normally doing and think about food… er… how grateful we are for all the good things in our life. Okay, so we mostly think about the food part. I’m making pumpkin bread, cornbread stuffing, sweet potato casserole, garlic mashed potatoes, turkey, and gravy for the feast tomorrow. It’s a lot of work, but it has a yummy reward.

Ditto with game design.

There’s a lot of work, passion, and time that goes into creating the Hero-U game. I’d like to thank our great artists – Eric Varnes, Paul Bowers, Terry Robinson, Chris Willis, and John Paul Selwood for the beauty and cleverness they put into their art. You might not associate cleverness with art, but in computer games, an artist has to do a lot of thinking and planning to get things to work. It takes a special breed of artist. We’re very fortunate to have them on our team.

I’d also like to thank our programmers – Jonathan Cheatham, Rob Eisenberg, and Jerry Shaw. Yeah, it takes Smarts to program a game. It also takes creativity. Everything they do for this game is new and innovative. That’s why it takes exceptional talent to program this game. We’re grateful these people are working on the project.

But the people we are most grateful for our you – our fans. We can literally say that this game could not be made without you. You support Hero-U, finance it, and keep the faith that it will be great. You keep us all focused on the goal to make certain this game lives up to your expectations. Your encouragement renews our energy. We’re so thankful to have you as part of this project.

All in all, we have a lot to be thankful for.
