I just finished up the early 2015 planning session for Open Form Games. Our 2015 strategy is a pretty aggressive release schedule of episodic games. The general goal is about a release per month, give or take. Let me introduce you to the first round of games!
The third installment of the Xamalga series, we are making it 3d and an MMO. Everyone collaborates to take down Xamalga as it makes its way to destroy Earth. Players progress through “sector space,” transmitting their consciousness to remote battle groups through a system called the Xamalga Defense Array.
Data Burst is a cyberpunk inspired episode of the Vegas Prime Retrograde series. In Data Burst, the player discovers the background for VPR’s main heroes, while competing with an opponent hacker to collect data bundles deposited around Vegas Prime.
The Gatherer is the first episode in the Transmission Alpha series. You play a deep space resource miner, called a Gatherer, as you gather resources from the surface of a once living planet. While you gather resources to sell at Vegas Prime, you explore the remnants of a dead civilization, experiencing the final thoughts as they prepared for the end of their culture.
You play rock and roll badass E.V. as she battles swarms of evil robots, collecting mojo to summon her giant robotic counterpart Jett to do battle with various grotesque kaiju bosses. E.V. and her band battle through gritty city streets, evil volcano lairs, moon bases, and crazy martian landscapes, as the thwart the evil Dr. Badstuff.
The player navigates a nightmarish dream state, as they look for clues as to the nature and reason for the tragic disappearance of Clara Moore. The tone of the game is driven by a sense of mystery, exploration, and malaise.
