Games of Glory

Are you in the market for a new MOBA? Developer Lightbulb Crew is making one called Games of Glory and it’s coming to Steam “early this summer,” according to a new press release. Curiously, the firm has chosen to release a cinematic trailer focusing on “the narrative that will be the driving force” behind the new title.

“We really don’t think there is a term currently out there that truly encapsulates what Games of Glory is,” says Lightbulb co-founder Anders Larsson. “The best thing I can think of is ‘SHMOBA,’ because it has qualities of the popular MOBA genre while creating an innovative gameplay experience with its shooter mechanics.”

Games of Glory boasts MOBA-style arenas and “action, equipment, perks, and skill-based gameplay” from popular shooters. The press release also describes the title as a “living persistent universe” without any “auto-attack or lane phases.”

I was thinking precisely the same thing after watching that trailer.

I read through their site: http://lightbulbcrew.fr/gamesofglory/ and watched some gameplay .   This sounds like they’re taking a similar approach to what Blizzard’s doing with HotS, streamlining the gameplay and shaking things up with map goals.   No creeps… no auto-attacks… every shot is a skill-shot.  It looks like the alpha is open too.  I don’t see anything about what makes it a living persistent universe, though

“living persistent universe”

I have no idea what that’s supposed to mean in a MOBA game.

And really, “SHMOBA”? 

Games like Monday Night Combat, Awesomenauts, Gigantic, and Overwatch already exist. 

No need for more useless terminology.

Sorta controls like that Dead Island MOBA.. I may be able to get behind something like that..

I wonder what would happen if a developer brought back SMASH TV and gave it the MOBA treatment.. I’d like to see that..
