FutureMark Studios released this trailer showcasing game play for their upcoming tower defense game for the PC, IPad and XBLA, Unstoppable Gorg, a homage to the early Sci-Fi films of the 40s and 50s. The Gorg, lead by the Lizard King, attack earth in the classic flying saucers. The tower defense battles take place in orbit around earth as opposed to land based battles. The Unstoppable Gorg game play looks unique. FutureMark Studios plans to release Unstoppable Gorg in early 2012. Price is TBD.
Here’s more information about the Unstoppable Gorg tower defense game from Future Mark Studios:
“Unstoppable Gorg is a lovingly crafted homage to vintage sci-fi films from the 1950s. Flying saucers, rubbery aliens, dodgy effects, it’s got it all. The game’s story scenes were shot on film using models, miniatures and live action actors and then edited together with genuine archive footage to create a classic sci-fi experience that is out of this world.
Jaakko Haapasalo, Head of Futuremark Games Studio, who also plays the role of Radiant Beem in the game, said,
“With Unstoppable Gorg, we embraced the film techniques used in the golden age of sci-fi to create an authentic visual style that has never been seen in a game before. It’s the difference between the Star Wars films that people love, with their special effects created with models, and the unpopular prequels with their heavy-handed CGI.”
