Tropical Stormfront: Multiplayer BETA-Test!

Filed under: Announcement,Development — noblemaster @ 03:07

Nick & me just spent a few hours alpha-testing the new multiplayer port for Tropical Stormfront. We have fixed all the bugs, so it’s running all smoothly over both LAN and internet. Nick beat me a few times, so it wasn’t going so well for me in that sense :-D

Next on the list is a beta-test 3 vs. 3 or even 4 vs. 4 (2 teams). Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux & Android. Open dates are next week Tuesday-Thursday, March 27.-29., from 09:00-17:00 (1h) next week. We will conduct a conference call via Skype (voice) while we play. I’ll host the Skype call. Someone in the group will host the game. Please enter your availability in the Doodle Poll and email me at contact [at] noblemaster.com to participate. I’ll send the download link & Skype call information.

It’s first-come first-server – Register early!!!

May Of Conquest – Ready To Go (May 2012)

Filed under: Announcement,Business — Tags: , , , — Travis @ 07:35

Age of Conquest is a Risk-like turn-based strategy game that players from all over the world compete in. Playable on various maps including Europe, Asia, North America, even The World! The game is available for all major operating systems including Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Android and iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad).

Age of Conquest started many years ago and has come a long way. To celebrate each year, May of Conquest has been created which is a series of tournaments allowing players to compete for various prizes. With our final sponsors added, the tournament is ready to commence. But we are a long way from finding out our many victors. We have a grand total of 33 tournaments and prizes ranging from extended account membership to your very own Noble Master Games apparel and more. The tournaments are free to join. The tournaments start April 29.

There are many people to thank, let’s start with those who set it up. KingHowardII (aka KH), fodder, and ImLagging all worked on defining and setting up the entire festival. Over the course of several months they discussed every aspect in how things should be run, and the final result is excellent.

We also like to Thank our Sponsors

Age of Conquest has become widely popular on Android devices. Droid Gamers and Droid Review Central have each sponsored a 6 month extended membership tournament. We are happy to have them on board!

But we also have some players who have sponsored tournaments. ImLagging introduced me to Age of Conquest long ago! Mercer is a well-known and long time player of Age of Conquest. KievRus, honorable and fierce player. KingHoward has been active and helpful in the community for many years.

KingSlayers Clan has many strong and capable players in it’s ranks. Also of course, our very own Noble Master Games!

Don’t forget, the tournaments are absolutely free to join, so it is a good opportunity to gain a membership upgrade. Don’t want to join every tournament? Unsure which tournaments give which prizes? Check out the full details here http://www.ageofconquest.com/festival.html
