Might Fight Right? SMITE Is... Announced.

Sorry, I’m really tired. But not as tired as DOTA-type gamers are going to be if they bother to play all the DOTA-inspired games that are coming out. Yes, another one has been announced. This time from Hi-Rez Studios. It’s called SMITE. Todd Harris explains: “”With SMITE, we draw inspiration from DoTA-style RTS titles, but leverage the Unreal 3 Engine to introduce original action oriented combat mechanics, great graphics, and a mythology-themed setting. These session-based games depend upon balanced class design, sophisticated stat-tracking, and matchmaking functionality.”

Not a whole lot more information that than right now. But wow, people really are trying to cash in on the DOTA audience. I am not sure what it is about it. Is it purely down to companies recognising that there’s a decent size number of players interested in this stuff? Or do all game dev CEOs secretly love DOTA? I suppose it’s the same as all the Counter-Strike clones a few years ago. But still, there’s a lot of stuff you could be inspired by to make new games. Truck Simulator, for instance.
