[Slime-Ball-Istic Mr. Missile] - Missile Defense and ... Geography?

I'm happy to present the teaser trailer for our upcoming game, "Slime-Ball-Istic Mr. Missile" (or "Mr. Missile" for short).




Many of you may recognize the retro gameplay featured at the tail-end of the trailer.
We're currently aiming for a Q3 release this year (2016).

We still have a few cities and landmarks to create for the game, so we'd love to hear from you as to what cities / landmarks you'd like to see in the game. Any continent is fair game, though we'd like each city to have at least 3 (somewhat) famous and recognizable buildings / landmarks. Feel free to give us your suggestions in the comments.

Thanks for checking us out!

Alright, I'm throwing my vote in for my hometown of Sacramento. I know it's not the most well-known town, but it's actually an awesome city that's under most peoples' radar and we ARE the Capital of California, after all

Anyway, probably 3 of the most recognizable landmarks in Sacramento are:

The Ziggurat Building




The Tower Bridge



and of course, The State Capitol Building

My hometown Honolulu, Hawaii would be awesome to see in this game!

How about farms and giant wind turbines in the Midwest or some spinoff of Area 51 in the desert?

Thanks for the replies and checking us out, everyone!

kripa1415` We hope so. Graphics, sound, and everything should be as good as possible, but in the end it should be a fun game!

Boardumb (Jared) Thanks for actually finding and including images! This aspect of research actually takes time, so you've helped a lot. You've certainly made a strong case for Sacramento which currently isn't in the game... but now could be? =]

tunawrap Honolulu could work. It's definitely a recognized city. As a local, what 3 (man-made) landmarks would you suggest? Tall skyscrapers work well, but variety is also nice.

Shimm5 I know you saw our reply in the article, but I'll repost it here.
"Visually that actually sounds really cool, Sean. As of now we've been including landmarks (Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, etc.), but we'll keep this in mind. I wonder what Area 51 looks like...
Thanks for the suggestions!"
I've actually just made some turbines for another location. And I'm still thinking of "Area 52" in the back of my mind.

Here are some images we've been posting for marketing.
The final game will include parodies of landmarks to avoid legal issues. =]



Westminster Palace


The Colosseum


Arc de Triomphe


Fernsehturm de Berlin


Hungarian Parliament Building

Hello all.

Work continues on the game as our first set of cities is done. Of course the plan is to make more, but first we need to finish the rest of the game. o_O

We're still interested in hearing which cities and landmarks (at least 3 per city) you'd like to see.

For now, here are some more sprites we've made.

Washington D.C. Made on the 4th of July, of course.


Gyeongbok-gung 경복궁


Tokyo Tower


Taipei 101


Gateway of India


Burj Al Arab
