Congrats, @Rustem_Khafizov . Surely no other sequel has improved on its predecessor so much in wordcount! Hope it does well for you.

Ain’t that the truth! I’m currently the author behind both the shortest and the longest superhero Hosted Games games… :sweat_smile:

Congratulations! I’ve never played the original, so I got to ask: is it fine to play this a standalone?

Congratulations @Rustem_Khafizov – I am happy to see this being pushed live.

I am also glad you gave the community a hella lot of romance options; now if someone expresses a wish to have a ton more romance, I can point them here.

Perhaps the success of this title will make the decision to bring both Balance of Superpower titles to Steam easier for HG. We can only hope.
