The Harvest (by Luma Arcade) - coming soon in 2013

One of the best Windows Phone 7 games is coming soon to iOS, Android and Windows 8, it is The Harvest by Luma Arcade - the creator of Bladeslinger and co-creator of Bounty Arms. The Harvest was released on Windows Phone 7 in 2010 and will be released on the above mentioned platforms sometimes in 2013.

General information:

Published by Microsoft Game Studios, and developed by Luma Arcade using XNA Games Studio 4.0, The Harvest is a science fiction themed Action RPG that takes place on future Earth, some years after the fallout of a destructive alien invasion. These aliens, who have been come to be known as The Harvesters, use humans and animals to create cyborgs: crude amalgamations of flesh and machinery. Mankind, in the form of the Global Defense Force is fighting a war against The Harvesters using human controlled mechanized infantry units.

The GDF army has been deployed to various parts of the world in order to fight back against The Harvesters in hope of restoring Earth to its rightful owners. You are part of a group that has been sent to investigate reported Harvester activity in the region of the ruins of an ancient city that was once used as military base for an organization that was a precursor to the GDF, which is where the game begins.

The game world of The Harvest has been designed to provide not only visceral combat, but opportunities for exploration, character customization, and story progression. As players make their way through each game area, they must not only fight off wave after wave of The Harvester horde, but find hidden upgrades, perform story actions, and defeat large and imposing enemy boss units in order to move on to the next area.

The Harvest has been designed from the ground up to be the best looking 3D mobile phone game to date, with innovative touch screen gameplay that brings Action RPG games on mobile devices out of the dark ages. Players are immediately immersed in an Action RPG game experience tailored to mobile phones, taking all the best from the genre, while removing the tedium and repetitiveness that is usually associated with games of this nature. At the same time, they are immersed into a deep and intriguing story that will leave them wanting to find out more.

This is a game made for single-core, underpowered devices that belong to the previous century. Nothing great here guys. Move on.

PS: I'm eagerly awaiting their other games - Bounty Arms & Racer! - and hope they don't waste too much time on this pointless exercise.
