Introducing Invade the Ruins, my Warcraft 3 project

Hey everyone, this is a post to explain what I’ve been doing with my days for the last few weeks and on and off for many years now.  I work on an add-on adventure for the Warcraft 3 game called Invade the Ruins.  Normally Warcraft 3 is a strategy game, but my project is a cooperative action game.  It’s meant to be played online with 3 other people through Battle.net, which is built-in to WC3.

I’m working on an update to Invade the Ruins, and I want to make the best version of my map I’ve ever released.  To do that I need feedback from you about your experiences with it.  The focus of “Update 1” is on the Hero characters and their abilities.  Are they fun? Interesting? Useful?

Download and try out the new beta release, read about the hero changes, and leave me some feedback on the forums!

    Hey man, I absolutely love this map. It’s so polished and well done, and reminds me of all the good things about early 5 man instances in the original WoW, but on the war3 engine and with a distinct war3 flavor!

    I really hope you nab starcraft 2 and work with the editor they’re releasing. If you haven’t seen it look it up, the possibilities on that editor are insane and hurdles above the war3 editor, and I’d love to see what you could do with the technology.

    By the way, battle.net will be introducing a developer map shop where high quality maps can be put up by their developers for a fee, which is a great way to generate income for an ambitious project, and blizzard may even contact developers that stand out.

    Thanks a lot! If you’ve got any feedback on the beta, be sure to post in the forums.
