How many of you remember the third person shooter H-Hour? It was an indie game that was Kickstarted a few years back that managed to generate some buzz. Why? Because it was supposed to the spiritual successor to the beloved SOCOM franchise. The icing on the cake was the studio behind the game was being led by the original executive producer of SOCOM 1 & 2 (the good ones).
Then he randomly left the team, SOF Studios lost its way and the drama kicked off. Between the forum bans for criticizing the game and the game’s development drastically slowed down, I learned that being a Kickstarter backer wasn’t an investment, but a straight-up risk! Since the drama died down a few years back I thought the game died, but then this trailer randomly appeared in my sub box!
It would seem I was wrong. Development continues and they have multiple maps. Maybe I’ll redownload the game and see if it’s improved? Did anyone play H-Hour recently? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
