FortressCraft, Steam Heroes and SkyKids are Coming to OnLive

Many OnLive gamers have been hoping to see a game such as Minecraft released for the service. While there is no word on if or when gamers could see Minecraft appear on OnLive, we may see a similar title rather soon. ProjectorGames, is bringing three of their more popular titles to the OnLive cloud gaming service in the near future, and one of them is a game called FortressCraft.

FortressCraft and Steam Heroes are popular titles for Xbox Live. However, FortressCraft is surely going to be a game that more OnLive users get excited about. To date, it is the best-selling indie game available on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and it has already grossed well over $1 million.

While, many gamers love FortressCraft, the creator of Minecraft (Markus Persson) seems to think that the game is basically a clone of his.

Steam Heroes is a puzzle game also available in the Xbox Live Marketplace. In this game, players are to help three brave adventurers on their quest to stop the diabolical Baron Von Smog’s plot to conquer Steam Land. However, there is an army of evil minions that stand in your way. Challenge yourself in this puzzle strategy game; includes 12 action-packed stages, a full soundtrack, competitive online play, all in stunning 720p HD Graphics. It’s up to you to save Steam Land!

In SkyKids you collect points, while being careful not to crash your plane!

Adam Sawkins (DjArcas) from ProjectorGames had this to say:
My current plans are to learn the OnLive system by porting my games Steam Heroes and SkyKids to the service; once that’s done, I should have a firm grounding to port FortressCraft across to it. No dates, but the @fortress_craft twitter will contain updates and progress on all the projects.

As a gamesplayer, I feel it’s much, much better to use the PlayPass system, but I’ll be taking advice from OnLive on exactly how it should be done. (subscription based, cloud based gaming? Honestly, it’s like heaven)
