Valiance Online livestreams its development alpha test

In an epic-length livestream this past weekend, the Valiance Online team showed off its development alpha test and discussed some of the systems and features that are going into this superhero MMO.

One of these topics was superhero origins, which the team said was a daunting task to incorporate as there are tons of backstories behind all of the caped crusaders out there. So the team created three main origin categories — magic, science, and natural — for now that should cover the broader spectrum.

Even better is a lot of footage of actual gameplay, which takes place in a colorful city and shows off combat, movement, and even a day/night cycle.

Settle in for the nearly four-hour livestream with goofy and easily distracted developers after the break. The actual stream begins at the 22-minute mark; it discusses superhero origins at 1:34:00, powersets at 1:42:00, and gameplay at 2:46:00.

skipped ahead to the game play part… great comments about what a game actually means to players, and why when a game closes, it isn’t “just a game” that is lost. You can tell how dedicated the developers are and what some of the struggles might be when looking for investors. Wish them the best of luck.

Posting here because the article picture is very pink…

“They could be baiting your pigtails to play this at some point, Uta.”
