Oct. 30, 1938: A nation in panic.
With the penumbral darkness of a Second World War waxing over the world, a single broadcast was able to ignite the latent fears of a country.
This panic was brought on by the legendary radio broadcast of “The War of the Worlds” as interpreted by Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre. This performance was widely misinterpreted as an actual news report, and police stations all over the country were swamped with the calls of a terrified populace.
An impressive display of the power of all media. Impressive acting as well; Orson Welles, whose career spanned from “ground zero” of an alien invasion all the way up to his very last role 48years later, an all-consuming planet named Unicron in Transformers: The Movie (1986), although we confess, portraying a gluttonous, would-devouring planetoid mass was not much of a stretch for the late Orson Welles.

Snakehead Games is pleased to announce its latest wave in social media.
Star Pirates is set following the cataclysm that renders Earth uninhabitable, where asteroid miners turn to piracy and join warring fleets, exploring, trading and fighting for survival!
Spy Battle: 2165, set before the eponymous StarCrash, is a dystopian cyberpunk world where nanotech immortality and a resource crunch drive war into the shadows – and the hands of freelance spies. Spies like YOU!
On the Barren Moon of Callisto, a research station lurks beneath the icy surface. This seemingly abandoned research base was home to the most classified of Ai experiments. Mercenaries are needed to determine why this station went dark, are you up to it?
The Emperor Honorarius has cancelled the gladiatorial games. As he has said, the Coliseum is “bleeding red and that must stop.” And so Coliseum Conquest is cancelled.
What does this means to players of Coliseum Conquest?
• Coliseum (www.coliseumconquest.com & related URLs) will be taken offline in late December 2013. This means the game will no longer function in any way, shape or form. The URL will redirect to a list of other SHG games.
• As of now, you will no longer be able to support the game Coliseum through purchase of Favore. This to ensure players do not unknowingly buy and then be unable to use it.
What if I bought Favore?
Players who bought Favore in Coliseum in 2013 will be provided equal value of points (or the equivalent) in any of our other games. There are some steps to verify this – if you bought in 2013, raise a ticket in the SHG game you are interested in transfering that credit to, along with your name in Coliseum, and after verification tests, we will credit you!
There is no legal need to provide compensation, but we want to be fair back to those who have been supporters of Snakehead Games. Those who have bought Favore before 2013 will not receive any compensation. Those players have had ample time to enjoy the game.
Why is this action being taken?
Economic realities. Simply put not enough players enjoy and support the game Coliseum. It is a money losing game. Loyalty to supporters meant we kept it alive, and even added series of upgrades, but there comes a time where the invisible hand of Adam Smith gives us a smack across both cheeks – the wakeup call to face facts, and close the game. Hard facts: Coliseum rarely covered its server cost and never any of its development or support costs. This is unfair on the games that do have loyal players who support them – those games deserve and can afford extra new additions.
This should come as no surprise to anyone involved in Coliseum – active players know the economic issues as it has been a part of the shoutbox chatter for months.
Does SHG Enjoy Being a Grim Reaper?
NO! We are proud of Coliseum and have a strong loyalty to the community there. Closing a game is never fun, and this is the first game shuttered by Snakehead Games Inc. (although the game www.baneworld.com that we gave to another organization has since been shut). There are no plans, or issues that would require us to do this with other browser-based SHG titles.
Why Doesn’t SHG Leave it Live?
Clean breaks are best. Having games live means GameMastering the games; at the very least we need to actively look at multiaccounts, exploits etc. That takes time. We’d also have to rip out any kind of social interaction between players such as the shoutbox etc.
And that would turn it into something SHG isn’t proud of. We won’t have that.
Thank you to our loyal players who supported Coliseum and all our other games with their hard earned cash, so that we could build something, and we’re truly sorry it didn’t work out the way we all wanted.
We expect to use this freed time to build games that you do enjoy. Stay tuned for exciting news from SHG! We have a lot in the works and some great things to reveal in the near future!!
As we journey through the paths of life, we often encounter problems that seem insurmountable.
Turtle, one of our players in 2165, provided us with a puzzle that had wracked the brains of our best and brightest, it was deemed unsolvable, that is, until now.
On this glorious day of 2013/07/24 Jay (who programs in our mobile game division) solved this puzzle of Gordian proportions.
Pics or it didn’t happen:
Notice, this 3-D wood puzzle is a jigsaw world, carried on a turtle’s back. Which describes our world fairly well, according to some…
Star Pirates: in case you missed the Announcement…
Class X Drive Unit Change: an enhancement to the upgrade path for the Class X Drive Unit has been applied. The changes are:
Mk I….no change
Mk II…+1% CRIT CHANCE, +1 CRIT DAMAGE
Mk III..+1% CRIT CHANCE, +1 CRIT DAMAGE, -1% ENEMY CRIT
Mk IV..+2% CRIT CHANCE, +1 CRIT DAMAGE, -1% ENEMY CRIT
Mk V…+2% CRIT CHANCE, +1 CRIT DAMAGE, -1% ENEMY CRIT, -2% MALF (was: -1%)
Surprise: all you Notorious Star Pirates had a surprise just after noon ticked over on 2013-07-18. Energy, Research and Fuel refilled to maximum (hope you were busy just beforehand). You gained 2 more Notorious days free. And biggest surprise: you gained 200 exp. for every level you had (maximum: 20,000 exp). Green was the scene
Diverter Mod: has a new power. It now restores a flat 2 Energy per use. This is intended to help players just below a combat threshold and should assist new players as well as Ascenders looking for another attack or Commission. Item Market has been emptied since this change affects values.
AI Data Crystal is no longer findable: It has a new feature: when consumed, 4 Research Units are restored.
Finely Aged Alpha Centauri Rum is Findable: once again this is Rare.
Spybattle 2165′s Agent Madawc is the first player to ply the seas in a Stealth Submarine. Congrats!
Not only does Agent Madawc get access to the sub, with it’s extra research, but also is the first Agent to get hands on the Z-vial, and the ability to launch a zombie outbreak.
In addition, for being one of the first 5 players to get a Stealth Submarine, Agent Madawc will receive the Stealth Service Medal.
