Mushroom Wars 2

 

Mushroom Wars 2, the sequel to one of the last generation’s hit RTS games, is gearing up to roll into closed beta later this month. The game preserves the core gameplay mechanics that made the original so fun, while also adding a visual overhaul. The game also adds re-imagined campaigns for each tribe of the Mushroom Folk, along with new hero characters to control. The game also lets you play online and with friends via competitive multiplayer, as well as a cooperative mode. The game also recently earned the Best Strategy Game award at the White Nights conference in Saint-Petersburg.

The game’s closed beta on PC will run from Thursday, July 28 at 7 a.m. PT to Sunday, July 31 at 7 p.m. PT. If you are interested in taking part, here’s how. Owners of the original Mushroom Wars game on Steam get automatic access to the closed beta. To enter, just log into the original game before the Mushroom Wars 2 closed beta ends on July 31 and you will get a key. For those who don’t own the original Mushroom Wars, you can head to the Mushroom Wars 2 website and sign up for the closed beta. This must be done before it ends on July 31, but in the meantime here’s the Mushroom Wars 2 trailer:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
