G.O.M.P. --> [Get Off My Planet] <-- Sci-fi FPS



Vote for your favorite game icon concept above!




Teaser Screenshots!



From the team that brought you Wings Galaxy & Doodle Bomb comes a new blend of sci-fi and humor sure to earn a place on your Springboard.

G.O.M.P. ["Get off my Planet"] is a casual sci-fi FPS coming soon for the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad [universal binary]. No 30 minute training sessions, no convoluted controls, no complex objectives… just pure 3D gun ripen' & ass kickin' fun.

Man your turret and put down the alien army with a variety of heavy artillery designed for maximum pain. Multiple enemy types include grunt soldiers, jet-pack troopers, alien mother ships, giant chaingun wielding bosses & more!

I'll answer any questions you may have on this thread .

Screenshots are coming soon! Planned submit date: Late May 2010.

Cheers,
Matt

Sounds good. When can we expect some screenshots(I know soon, but how long is this soon? ) or better, a gameplay video?

Sounds fun, you made me want this, even though I don't really like FPS games. I hope this will be out soon.

I'm pretty sure the robot on the left was stolen directly from the Holotoy app that's on the appstore. Unless the game was made by the same people, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't. It's a great design, but I think that would be considered stealing.

We live in a development ecosystem where 3rd parties develop art that can be licensed for use in multiple apps by different developers. The style of this art fits our concept so we licensed it from the artist who originally created it for use in our project. We are also creating many more art assets that match this style. Our goal in this game is to create a great physics driven "shoot-em-up" focusing on the tech and the branding... the select licensed art made sense for us in this scenario.

Please be careful to get the details before you accuse someone of stealing.
