Assault Squadron info, teaser, trailer & screens!

Hey guys,

I've seen a thread or two around the place here and thought I would tidy it up by compiling it all into one thread that we will be monitoring / adding to, so if you have any questions, please feel free to post them - we'd love to hear your feedback.

For those that don't know, Assault Squadron is a [Chillingo published] top-down AND side-scrolling shoot em' up for iPhone that mixes frantic action packed gameplay with CG cutscenes to bring a unique shmup experience to the AppStore. Below you can see the teaser, which focuses primarily on the CG components of the game, and also the trailer which shows in-game footage and lists several key features. We'll be a Spring release and are working hard make that sooner rather than later!

Enjoy!

That is the tidiest gameplay trailer I have EVER seen, what'd you guys do, just throw money at this app?

Either way, total win! Can't wait to grab it.

The cinematics look great. May I ask what software you used to make them?

You bet - we use 3DS Max to model & animate, Mental Ray for rendering and the final composite is completed in Shake.
