Happy Holidays

‘Tis the season to be jolly,
Filled with faith and joy and folly,
As we gather for another happy holly-day
Here at Hero-U.

There is news and cause for cheer
As the new year’s eve draws near
and we begin our final year
Of work on Hero-U:

Unto Jonathan is born a son!
And that is reason number one
Why a programmer’s work is never done
Here at Hero-U.

So we did beg, plead, and implore
And sent out word that we need more
Coders to come join our corps
With us at Hero-U.

And lo! The coders did reply
We now have several folks who vie
To prove their worth or skill to try
To join our Hero-U.

We’ve got so very much to do
Before our game design is through
And art and code and testing too
Of good old Hero-U.

But ere this giving season goes
For you, our fans, a gift we chose
A music video that shows
The Art of Hero-U.

And so for all, we send our plea
for Peace and Hope and Joy to thee
And next year at this time you’ll see –
The Game of Hero-U.

Happy holidays, everyone! There’s a lot of great news for this closing of the year. In the newcomer category, we have babies and new hires. Our lead programmer, Jonathan Cheatham, now has a new son, Cian Muir Cheatham. Our friend, Richard Aronson, is now a grandfather. We’re about to welcome a daughter-in-law, Annette, to our family next month.

We have four very promising applicants for the programming team. We clearly need all the help we can get. It’s going to be a busy year for all of us in 2015. After all, we set the date for an October release for ‘Rogue to Redemption.’

To celebrate the season and to show off just how gorgeous Hero-U will be, I put together a musical slideshow. We’ve always been very proud of the art of Hero-U. This video shows the art process from start to finish. It shows how much work goes into creating the art assets for the game. There are even a few hints of what happens in ‘Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption.’

This is our way of thanking you for all your faith you’ve shown for us over the years.
