** Astro Balls - Preview **

Hi guys,

I think that now is the time to open our first development thread. The game mechanic are around 50% completed and at the moment we are working on the power-up but you can find more information in the bottom!
We are going to add video, images and descriptions.
Here are all the first informations:

this is ASTRO BALLS, a survival with a sci-fi theme that should be available in early september.

As I said before, this is a survival sci-fi game where the player has to survive in arenas of growing difficulty. The game will have its own story and it will be along of 9 blocks composed by 3 levels each one for a total of 27 levels + 3 hidden levels. In the game you can choose between 5 different alien races that will have the spaceship controlled by the player. Every spaceship will have a particular feature.

You will use 13 different power-ups, offensive and defensive. The backgrounds and the spaceships are 3D pre-rendered. The aliens' concept are realized by Francesco (Dead Nation, Rusty Dogs, The professionist) Montarino, a very good Italian designer that has recently joined our team.

Astro Balls is in our projects since few months and the work is going on in a good way: we hope to release a beta at the end of August and then to send the game to Apple and with the release in early September on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and then for Android.

Please leave you feedback in the comments!!
