Wakeskater Studio has just released the first substantial update for their action tower defense title called SBX: Invasion. For those who just did a double take looking at that genre subcategory, Invasion backs its claim by offering fast-paced action and the unique ability to construct units almost anywhere on the map without designated build locations. Other features include a custom map creator complete with share functionality, multiple enemy types with adaptive intelligence allowing them to modify their behavior based on your defenses, and a 10-level campaign that includes 3 major boss encounters.
For those who picked up Invasion when it released November, update 1.1 brings new sound effects, some bug fixes, graphical tweaks, and improved functionality overall. According to game designer and Wakeskater Studio founder Jason Carter, the update also eases the entry barrier for newcomers, facilitating the Easy and Medium difficulty settings for a less stressful experience. SBX: Invasion is available now on PC and can be purchased through Desura, Indie Game Stand, Fireflower Games, or through the Wakeskater website.
Chris Hayes, one of our IGM PAX Prime 2013 team members, writes on his hands-on impressions of On The Level Game Studios’ action adventure title Boo Bunny Plague.
Boo Bunny Plague is the story of a robot toy bunny gone mad. With his trusty guitar, he must smash his way to happiness. Where the game really hits home is its nods to the past, with nods to both Say Anything and Robocop 3, it leaves you looking for that sense of nostalgia. I was left wanting more, as I don’t think I got the full sense of the game with the small amount of game play I received.
As of present it is a game about a mad robot bunny trying to smash things with its guitar, but I got the sense that there will be more to come and I am looking forward to seeing what is next for Bunny. Here’s our interview with On The Level’s Bunny Rogers and Jamie Daruwala, as well as a look at some gameplay footage:
Boo Bunny Plague is due out Easter 2014 on PC, check out and/or vote for the game on its Steam Greenlight page.
Our PAX coverage continues today with Chromancer, The Started Hare’s free-to-play browser-based strategic collectible card game that — literally just moments ago — hit and passed its $60,000 funding goal on Kickstarter. There’s still a little over a day left for the game’s crowdfunding campaign, so feel free to pour a little gravy on top for them (especially if any of the reward tiers catch your eye).
We caught up with Started Hare’s George Maasry for an explanation on the different mechanics and systems that make up Chromancer, and got a look at the game’s artwork as well.
Congratulations again to the devs for hitting their goal. With funding secured, Chromancer is now officially due out this winter.
