*** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ***
29th October 2012 - London, England: Zero Separation Ltd has just opened the first sections of the website and released the first full Trailer for their upcoming Trading Card MMO: HeroDex.
The Trailer is available on the Zero Separation YouTube stream at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkpvHtiMHIM
The website is available at: http://www.herodex.net
Press information including screenshots and other artwork for Zero Separation and HeroDex can be found at: http://www.herodex.net/press/sheet.php?p=herodex
The release date for the game has yet to be determined, however an invitation-only Beta will be announced soon. The game will initially be available on Windows, Macintosh and Linux platforms.
HeroDex features online solo play versus computer opponents along with competitive and co-operative play against or alongside other players. This brand new Virtual Trading Card Game offers quick-paced matches that can be completed in only a few minutes. The gameplay, with a unique feats-based advancement system and a flexible deck building system, will keep people coming back for more.
Matches have been described as a cross between Poker and Rock-Paper-Scissors (Roshambo) with bluffing and anticipating your opponent’s next move forming a large part of the strategy. All moves are made at the same time with each round finishing once everyone has made their move or the time limit is reached - so even large matches proceed quickly. The suspense of waiting to see what cards your opponent will reveal can become intense and outsmarting them very satisfying.
Players start with a free “Fighter” hero and starting deck. Further cards can be acquired in game or purchased from the store; as can a range of different Heroes, each with their own deck. A tutorial introduces new players to the game and allows the first new cards to be added to your deck as you progress.
Play is free, with no subscription or credit card details required and no hidden fees. Buy packs of cards from the store or earn cards in game and once you have them you will never be charged to use them.
Zero Separation is an independent games developer based near London, England.

Congrats. This trailer was definitely a lot better than the other one. The only annoying thing was the text in the middle, I was move focused on that and its shiny colours, and it took too long for the text to appear from the blur so I missed a lot of footage waiting for what it said. Otherwise good job, not my kind of game but I’m sure a lot of people will like it.
Thanks, I certainly hope so
We’ve added a signup form as well for anyone interested in trying the Closed Beta when it becomes available.
(Should have been there on Monday but we forgot it…oops!)
For anyone interested in such things the Background section of the website has just been opened up at http://www.herodex.net/background.php . Seven short stories and articles to start explaining the world of Arena.
