Gods and Heroes: Looking GOOD!

I finally stumbled across a post at MMOG Nation that is an interview with the folks at Perpetual Entertainment.

I'm most intrigued, the more I learn about this game, by the minion system they're trying to make happen. Here's a snippet from the interview:
The Minion and Squad Combat System has always been one of the core differentiators for Gods & Heroes, and also something that I’m personally extremely excited about. The minute that you play G&H with one or two minions—who each bring their own specialties and feats into play—you realize you are simply playing a different game than you are in other single-character MMOs. This is still a multiplayer game, and we’re in no way trying to replace real players with NPCs, but players get this unprecedented layer of character customization through the Minion and Squad Combat System. Our primary goal is to let players shape their minions and squads in a way that fits their own unique play style, as opposed to the minions shaping how a person would play. G&H is a squad-based MMO adventure game, and we think that it is a very strong innovative gameplay design compared to the styles that are out there.
It sounds to me like a sort of blend between a traditional PvE MMO game, and Pokemon. Gotta catch em all. :)

I can't wait to see how it pans out. They can send me my beta invite any day now.
