Futuremark Games Studio has announced today that it’s developing a new space defense game called Unstoppable Gorg for the XBLA and PC. Your mission in Unstoppable Gorg is to defend the solar system from the relentless march of a fearsome alien race by sending satellites into orbit around planets, moons and space stations.
It’s possible to move your satellites even after you have placed them, which is something you don’t see very often in other tower defense based games. In the press release Futuremark says that this is "a convention defying mechanic that brings new vitality and interaction to the tower defense genre."
Jaakko Haapasalo, Director of Defense at Futuremark Games Studio tells reporters, "With Unstoppable Gorg we have been inspired by classic sci-fi films to create a game of flying saucers, rubbery aliens, dodgy effects and earnest heroes. Unstoppable Gorg builds on the core tower defense mechanics that fans love while shattering the genre's conventions to provide exciting new experiences."
Michael Zolna, Minister of Information at Headup Games further adds, "We are very pleased to continue our successful cooperation with Futuremark Games Studio. Unstoppable Gorg is a highly original tower defense style game with a novel sci-fi setting that will teleport the genre into unimagined territory."
Unstoppable Gorg, developed by Futuremark Games Studio and published by Headup Games, will be available for PC and Xbox LIVE Arcade. No release date has been revealed yet.
