Blitz Games Studios Signs 'Project Aftermath'

by Rainier on Jan. 15, 2009 @ 3:27 a.m. PST

Project Aftermath is an arcade RTS game where you command up to four squads of soldiers in exciting battles in a retro-futuristic world. Equip your squads to suit your playing style, researching new items using the spoils of war; choosing from over 100 different weapons, armor, power-up augmentations and spell-like special attacks.

In the aftermath of a great war, when your enemy has wiped out everything you hold dear, the time has come to regroup and strike back. Enlist in the Morphid army and use all the weapons and genetic powers at your disposal to eradicate the New Order menace!

Equip your squads to suit your playing style, researching new items using the spoils of war; choosing from over 100 different weapons, armour, power-up augmentations and spell-like special attacks.

Engage in hectic massed battles against hordes of enemies. Capture strategic locations, rescue hostages and slaughter indiscriminately! Explore the landscape to locate hidden treasures and uncover the secrets of both your enemy and the mysterious planet you find yourselves on. Replay missions using fewer soldiers and items to earn greater rewards.

The game rests on a points system – you pick up GOOP (fuel you need to run your ships/power your weapons/generally do everything) for finishing off your enemies and achieving objectives and spend them to use special powers. Equip your squads to suit your style and choose from over 100 weapons.

With only three people to make the entire game, Games Faction took on a mighty task and shed blood, sweat and tears to create Project Aftermath from scratch, without compromising their vision. It may have taken two years but it was worth it for Lee Hickey and Malcolm Reed, both ex-Deep Red Games.

“We actually built our own engine so we could build it exactly how we wanted. Our main objective was to keep the tech pretty simple to make sure it works on a large number of machines.” says Lee Hickey, Game Faction’s Managing Director. “We’re really happy with the final result and the critics’ reactions. While the game is currently available to download from a few portals, we’re really happy to be teaming up with Blitz 1>UP to gain additional exposure and help to maximise worldwide distribution.”

Adds Chris Swan, Blitz Arcade business development director: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Games Faction and their excellent title. The team have made a tremendous job in creating such a high-quality and accessible RTS title, and it’s an honour to be helping them to maximise its success.”

Action, mystery, hideous manmachine hybrids; Project Aftermath has it all.

Key Features :

  • Campaign mode containing ten missions of fast-paced action in a mysterious alien world.
  • 20 Challenge missions to test your skills to the limit.
