Heroes Community Games

As part of the HC Homepage Upgrade I've integrated five games into HC in partnership with two game studios. The games can be accessed via HC homepage or using the links below.

The games are free to play flash based MMO games developed by professional studios. This is a trial of a new partnership model where part of the revenue generated by the games is shared with HC towards upkeep and development. So if you decide to buy something inside one of the HC games (which is optional), part of the funds will go to game developers and part will go to HC.

When working on the integration I wanted to give HC members the ability to pass some fun time while still being connected with HC. When you play an HC game you will notice that the ad banner changes to an information box that keeps you up to date with what's happening on HC. The box will update itself every 5 minutes while you are playing showing you if you have new HCMs, what the latest 6 posts on the forums are, and when the game discussion thread was last updated (for the game you are playing). This way you can glance up ocassionally and click any new threads that interest you - they will open in a new browser tab/window.

Use this thread to comment about the game integration, or HC games in general.

If you want to discuss what you think about a particular game, use the dedicated game threads:
Game: Empire Thread: Empire Discussion
Game: Shadow Kings Thread: Shadow Kings Discussion
Game: SuperMechs Thread: SuperMechs Discussion
Game: Battle Dawn Thread: Battle Dawn Discussion
Game: Big Farm Thread: Big Farm Discussion
You can wait for others to do it, but if they don't know how, you'll wait forever.
Be an example of what you want to see on HC and in the world.

Valeriy, it is worth noting that your idea took off at the beginning, but nobody plays these games now. I wonder if we would be able to make some sort of competition between HC players. What I mean is, it might be a good idea to get things kicking. What about choosing a period of time, and after the deadline, we organize a leaderboards thread. And the winners would get a badge, some overlayed text in their profile that says they are one of the top players or something.

This way the games would have some players and at the same time you don't have to do pretty much anything... Apart from telling me what you think about my idea
