City Improvements

April 1st, 2019|

Video 27 -- Internal Footage City Improvements Game developers often share videos among themselves as a way to convey progress.  These videos are generally not very polished – they're simply intended to show the current progress in a part of the game.  We're currently upgrading our video creation process, so in the meantime we'll be publishing some internal footage to keep you updated on what's going on with Ship of Heroes.
