COFA Games has been undergoing an alpha testing phase for their forthcoming multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) videogame, Awakening of Heroes, for some months. Public applications are now open, and players can register for a chance to take part in the action now.
As a free-to-play MOBA, Awakening of Heroes allows two teams to compete against each other in real time. Awakening of Heroes is a multi-platform indie videogame that is playable on mobile devices, but also on Facebook and desktops. Awakening of Heroes has also received integrated Oculus Rift support, which means that players can experience a virtual reality (VR) of the videogame through the Observer Mode.
One of the main motivations behind Awakening of Heroes was an increasing need for more complex and more engaging Facebook videogames. “According to the recent trends, casual Facebook games show serious weaknesses in maintaining a long-term players’ interest. Thus, a lot of gamers are looking for something more, for a content that takes the game-playing thrill to the next level”, said Mr. Nikola Mitic, CEO of COFA Games team. “At the same time, we have extremely popular MOBA games which, however, require total commitment, advanced gaming experience and a lot of free time. In order to treat a mid-core gamers with a pleasure of playing MOBA games, while providing more relaxed atmosphere and shorter sessions, we developed Awakening of Heroes, a game that will be a special delight for those with a keen sense of humor [sic].”
The first group of gamers tested the videogame on 8th May 2014, after which the number of participants in alpha testing has been gradually increased. However, due to a huge interest, gamers can now apply to join the action on the official Awakening of Heroes website, http://www.awakeningofheroes.com/.
