Fleets of Heroes - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have been a software engineer both professionally and as a hobbyist for quite some time now. Our team has worked together on many smaller projects throughout the last decade or so before starting Fleets of Heroes.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Limited resources. We are an extremely small development team, I was the only programmer on the project. The most challenging aspect of the project as a whole, however, would be getting the name out there. Development is a bit more predictable than marketing.

Thibaut De Bock, Kevin Gardner, and Evan Morgan met at the University of Tennessee in 2006. At that time, their talents were dedicated to other endeavors, but throughout the course of their education and professional lives, they developed a set of skills which allowed them to create innovative, albeit simple (at first) video games. After forming Inner Hero LLC in 2017, the team began development on Fleets of Heroes, the premier title of the company. One soft launch and countless player-driven improvements later, we are now looking forward to launching Fleets of Heroes v2.0. Inner Hero LLC will not stop with Fleets of Heroes, and we already have more projects on the drawing board for the future.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Clash of Clans. It was a major inspiration for Fleets of Heroes. Instagram and Facebook to keep up with friends and family. Slack and Discord for work.

How long have you been working on this app?

3 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We wanted to touch on some aspects of base builders that we have not seen implemented in other games on the App Stores.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We bring in new levels of depth to a well known mobile gaming genre. We offer countless variations of upgradeable mods to our spaceships which can be collected, traded, and stacked onto the ships to make them bigger/faster/stronger. Our hero ships are also fully controllable throughout battle where you can move them where you want, attack any structure you want, as well as use special power moves. Our survival mode is a very unique and new mechanic we think is rather innovative for the genre. In this game mode you play on the defensive side, and try use your bases defense and hero ships offensively to hold back endless waves of enemies for as long as possible.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We would like to incorporate co-op style experiences where multiple people can play on the same bases and battles in real time. We also will implement skins for our hero ships and new tiers of equipment and resources.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

If you enjoy the game, please help us spread the word by sharing your experience.
