Orcs Must Die! Unchained Beta Trailer

Closed Beta update.

New Hero: Ancestor added: He’s a primarily Arcane damage Hero. Here’s the lowdown:

Passive: Ghost Link. The Ancestor’s Mana pool increases when people die around him. (It’s like a vindictive pleasure thing)

Primary: A Vampiric main attack that costs Mana to do Arcane damage, but also grants Ancestor a portion of that damage done as health.

Secondary: Area of Effect centered on Ancestor that heals allies and damages enemies proportional to the size of his Mana pool.

A convert-health-to-mana burst that allows Ancestor to keep going without the need for an afternoon nap.

And an Area of Effect terrain ability called ‘Hallowed Ground’. Enemies that die on Hallowed Ground are worth double the Ghost Link Mana increase. Also, the ghostly hands of his Bridge buddies reach up and will randomly Root enemies in the area of effect.

Sunset for EA’s MOBA Dawngate

Dawngate closes its doors in 90 days.

DawnGate Logo

EA was attempting to break into the very busy MOBA market with Dawngate. Going up against the big guns of DOTA 2 and LOL. With 6 months of open beta under their belt, it was announced today that development on the game would cease in the next 90 days.

Dawngate Screenshot

In a letter to Dawngate players, Matt Bromberg revealed the details of the shutdown.

“We built a game in Dawngate that wasn’t simply a clone of existing MOBAs, but one that truly pushed the genre forward in many ways. Dawngate has been in beta for almost 18 months, including a full open beta for the past six months. Through that time, we have taken a lot of feedback from players and delivered lots of new features and innovations. And although the game has grown, we’re not seeing the progress we’d hoped for.” said Bromberg.

For those who spent any money in the beta refunds will be available according to the post. “For most players, we’ll process those refunds within the next 10 days,” says EA.

EA’s foray into the MOBA genre came at a time where many companies are looking to jump on the MOBA bandwagon. DOTA 2 and League of Legends dominate the space, while companies like Blizzard with Heroes of the Storm, Crytek with Arena of Fate, and others Strife, Defense of the Ancients look to grab some of the market.

It’s not clear if this is the end of EA’s MOBA dreams or if they have something else in the pipeline.

“On behalf of the entire team at Waystone Games and EA, I want once again to thank all our players for being part of this journey,” Bromberg said. “Your straight-up feedback and the friendly reception we received all over the world at events was extremely encouraging and important to us. We appreciate it.”

You can still try Dawngate here if you have only just heard of the game.

Oomph… The Play store for Indonesia

OOmph Appstore

Oomph is a content distributor like Google Play. The main difference is that it is tailor-made just for the Indonesian Android market, mainly due to payment methods that it accepts. It lets customers pay for downloads via prepaid mobile credit which is referred to as “pulsa” in Indonesia. To date Google Play does not support carrier billing in Indonesia.

Oomph currently has more than 4.5 million registered users. Forecast to reach 10 million users by the end of next year. Oomph monetizes on a pay-per-download basis.

More 3rd party Android app stores can be found here.
