Hi There Winners,
Our next game is in a robust state of pre-production and ready for its name to be revealed unto the world. People of Earth, meet Stratolith. Stratolith, people of Earth. Stratolith is a real-time electronic warfare simulator that’s centered around hacking and repurposing drones to defend your floating city from Stratopeian superpowers. It will be available for PC and tablet devices in Winter 2014. Alex and I will be showing live gameplay demos at BitSummit and GDC in March, so if you happen to be at either event, get in touch with us and we’ll slap some panel-based power in your hands.
Stratolith is a departure from the safe shallow waters of casual smartphone gameplay, and a James Cameron submarine dive straight into the crushing depths of hardcore gaming. It’s proving to be our most ambitious project yet, with more intricate gameplay and content than our previous titles. Brief yourself with the following trailer and report to the bridge immediately!
We’ve also started a newsletter, so be sure to sign-up to get the latest news on Stratolith development!
