For the last month or so, we have been steering War On towards submission to the Pax Aus Indie Showcase.
War on has grown up over the last few months as we have been applying the spit an polish and gathering feedback from public playtest. For those of you who don’t know what War On is about, here is our submission spiel:
Run, jump, jetpack and blast your way to victory in our 2D local 4 player multiplayer deathmatch, “War On”. War On combines the fast pace frenetic action style of games such as Square Heroes and Soldat with the measured strategic approach of games like Worms Armageddon. With a strong focus on frenzied 4 player competitive action crossed with survival through the use of destructible terrain for cover, limited ammo and devastating weapons.
War On has a unique focus on hard rocking sound design. Taunt your enemies with your stomping metal theme song as Stumper, or channel your inner punk as you take the lead with a rocket to your opponent’s face as Rotter. Retrospectively channeling the glory days of couch multiplayer gaming, War On has been built from the ground up with a focus on putting a gamepad in the hands of 4 combatants with a thirst for blood and an appetite for destruction. Only the most veracious will succeed.
With many more game modes and customisations in the works, War On is a title like no other that is certain to have you mashing the Play Again button as your friends plead for mercy!
