In early 2010 Heatwave Interactive acquired the intellectual property rights and all assets for Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising, the Roman mythology themed Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game. As part of the transaction with PlayGrid, Heatwave also obtained a source code license to the PlayGrid Platform, their online game publishing technology as well as acquiring two game development engines.
The newly acquired game engines, previously developed by Perpetual Entertainment for in-development titles Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising and Star Trek Online, will serve as the technology foundation for Heatwave’s planned roster of MMOs.
Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising is a full scale action adventure MMO that immerses the audience in Roman mythology. Players step into a hero’s sandals to battle monsters and command minions while seeking favor from the gods.
On Saturday, Dec. 18, from 2 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. CST, not only will fans get to see the latest additions to the game and share their input with the development team, but, if 3,000 players or more enter the stress test, Anthony Castoro, respected CEO at Heatwave, vowed to shave his head.
