'Rock of Ages' (ALL) Officially Announced - Screens

Rock of Ages is a game of fast-paced strategy, high art... and gigantic boulders of doom. Two castles stand opposed, bridged by an uneven, narrow pathway. One is yours, the other is your enemy's, and their crappy crenelations are driving down your property values, justification enough to try crush it using an enormous rolling stone.

Unfortunately, they'll have a chance to plan and build up some security, doing everything they can to derail your razing rock.  Get through their defenses and you're one step closer to crushing their unsightly tower (see also: their hopes and dreams).  But don't take your turn for granite.  Once your turn is over, your opponent's begins...

A rock-solid combination of deep strategy, rock-rolling action, and captivating art and music from throughout history, Rock of Ages delivers incredibly satisfying castle-crashing gameplay with a look and feel that's much more than a stone's throw from the competition," stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus.  "Truly, the satisfaction felt when successfully crushing your opponent's intricate defenses with your gigantic siege stone, seeing their forces driven from before you and hearing the lamentation of their citizens, has no equal.  Multiplayer support means you can compete against a friend.  Will the end of the battle find you yelling 'I rock,' or will you be crying out 'no moss' instead?"

In addition to offering different terrains and challenges, your boulder will crash through different periods of classical art, introducing the player to a variety of authentic art styles and music from throughout much of human history.  The panoply of visual and aural motifs adds distinction and sophistication to the act of pulverizing your enemies with colossal boulders and laying waste to their ancestral homes.
