Development History / Background:

Valiance Online is being developed and published for Steam by SilverHelm Studios, a studio dedicated to creating MMOs for PC. Valiance Online began because its developers enjoyed City of Heroes, a now-defunct superhero MMORPG, and wished to create a spiritual continuation. Its Kickstarter was launched on October 29, 2014 with a total goal of $150,000. The game's marketing manager stepped down days after the Kickstarter's launch, eventually leading to its developers to cancel the crowdfunding on November 24, 2014 with only $34,680 of its total $150,000 goal raised. The game was released onto Steam Greenlight shortly thereafter, using alternative funding to continue development. Pre-alpha released on December 13, 2014 and it is continually updated. The game currently has no estimated release date.
