We’re showing off a massive boss fight in Showdown, the final mission of the Iris arc. The Iris mission arc is available to everyone who registers for the event. Donors are in the game now, playtesting the content to look for bugs, and non-donors will be allowed in on August 14th.

We’ve been working hard to set up another Ship of Heroes Beta event, and now the time is approaching.  We have wanted to show off a full mission arc for some time, as well as some other missions.  It did take longer to bugfix than we had hoped, but you can expect to try out these missions in late June or July.  We are showing off the first Iris mission arc, which has several branching choices that can interact in complex ways – more on that in a future newsletter.
