Based on the new proprietary engine Perfection, Bunch of Heroes started as a spare time project at NGD but quickly grew into full production once the team realized its potential. "This is what’s great about independent studios, there's always a chance to come up with something new. We hit the motherload with the Bunch”, said Leonardo Benaducci, Lead Engine programmer and father of the Perfection Engine.
"Like with Regnum Online, we are proud to be able to work in games our team loves. It's the only way to make internationally outstanding products in Latin America,”, said Andrés Chilkowski, General Manager of NGD Studios.
Bunch of heroes is slated for a Q2 2011 release for PC on major digital content delivery platforms.
