Lee Skittrell, Marketing Manager at Rising Star Games, had the following to say about 88 Heroes: RSG Champions: 

“We work with a fantastically talented and hugely disparate collective of developer partners, on wildly different types of projects. Bringing this selection of our own and our fans’ favorites all together alongside the 88 Heroes cast is a sort of celebration of our developers’ talents and our diverse portfolio, and is the kind of rare opportunity that only an open-minded and left field-thinking business vision, such as ours at Rising Star Games, can bring about”.
