Take a bit of MOBA, add in some flavor in the vein of SmashTV, sprinkle in a dusting of “auto attacks are for babies” and you have an idea of what Lightbulb Crew is trying to do with their upcoming free to play title, Games of Glory.
While you can sign up on the game’s website to jump into alpha, if you want to wait a few days you can get the game when it launches on Steam on May 27th. At launch, Games of Glory will feature two game modes:
The Superstar Game Mode in Svandia’s Foundry – In this ultra-dynamic game mode, players confront one another in 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3 to try and eliminate their opponent’s “Superstar” player, all the while protecting their own. Combat sequences are cadenced by a system of rounds, with each round lasting no longer than 80 seconds. The first team to win a total of 5 rounds will win the match.
The Conquest Game Mode in Arkashan Arena – Capture a maximum number of points and hold them for as long as possible to overwhelm the opposing team and destroy their Energy Core. The Conquest mode can be played in 3v3, 4v4, or 5v5. No laning phases means combat in the very first seconds: players are thrown directly into the fray!
We’ll be meeting with Lightbulb Crew later this week to check out the game prior to launch so stay tuned for our initial impressions.
