The games publisher Ares Games and the board game design studio Gremlin Project are joining forces to bring to the market the Galaxy Defenders game, a cooperative tactical game in which up to 5 players fight together against an incoming alien menace. Created by Simone Romano and Nunzio Surace and inspired to the Sci-Fi cult movies of the 80s and 90s, the game will feature high-detailed 40 mm scale miniatures and an innovative A.I. system to control the alien invaders.
In Galaxy Defenders, each player takes control of one agent with unique powers trying to defend the planet from an alien invasion. The battle for Earth against the aliens will develop in a series of scenarios organized in a story-driven campaign. Scenarios remain balanced independently of the number of players.
“When Gremlin Project approached us with the Sci-Fi game they developed, we appreciated both their enthusiasm and their highly professional attitude. Their approach of game design and development is very close to ours, and we think that Galaxy Defenders will be a great addition to our product line”, said Christoph Cianci, CEO of Ares Games.
“We are proud of this partnership, as we consider Ares Games a leading company in the international gaming market due to the uncontested quality of products like War of the Ring and Wings of Glory. We have in common the passion for games, and Ares products are created by gamers for gamers, just like we do. We aim to become a key partner of Ares Games in the future”, declared Simone Romano, co-founder of Gremlin Project together with Nunzio Surace.
Galaxy Defenders will be launched on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform on April 16, 2013. To know more about the game, visit the dedicated website www.galaxy-defenders.com.
