Project Haven is a game about friendships from Minion Masters developer BetaDwarf

Project Haven




BetaDwarf, makers of the acclaimed tower defense game Minion Masters, has just announced getting a $6.6m investment to create a game aimed at making friendships. This is more than a bit vague, but the game is codenamed Project Haven and will be multiplatform. It's too early to tell if Project Haven is going to follow the business model of Minion Masters, that being free-to-play.

The BetaDwarf team reveals that it is currently focused on the problem of loneliness, being passionate about great co-op experiences, being couch co-op or online co-op.

The studio's goal is to develop the first game in a brand-new genre. Project Haven will be BetaDwarf's largest project to date and will mix social mechanics seen in MMOs and MOBAs, with the aim of building “intimate friendships between players via data driven bonding.” To achieve this, they need more people to join the team, so if you're interested, the official site has a few job offers available.

There is no time frame for this ambitious game, but the investors did mention that they are eagerly waiting to see what the next 12 months bring. Hopefully, we should have some sort of alpha or beta by the end of 2020. The only thing that you can see for now from Project Haven is the piece of concept art below.
