Outland Games by Uber Entertainment

Hi all,

We just announced our new game called Outland Games on Touch Arcade. Here's the story

http://toucharcade.com/2013/03/05/ub...outland-games/

Quote:
Here's a neat surprise: Uber Entertainment, the Kirkland-based studio behind Super Monday Night Combat and Planetary Annihilation, is primed to release its first iPhone and iPad game this coming Thursday. Set in the universe of Monday Night Combat, Outland Games is an auto-runner that tasks you with running, slashing, and leaping your way to freedom as millions watch around the globe. It's like Running Man, but... literal.

We've been playing around with a build for a couple of days, and while it is very much a simple runner, it has some neat spots of design. The combo system is pretty cool. As you leap across crevices and thrash the game's robotic enemies, you can chain together your actions and basically juggle yourself. There's also the Monday Night Combat-influenced trimmings -- the over-the-top announcing, the characters, and the focus on cash and character garb.

It will be out Thursday.

It's very interesting. I don't know if this runner game is better thna Punch QUest, but it's look funny. I'm waiting the game release to review it.

Hey guys. Just wanted to stop in and say hi. I'm the main programmer from the project and Ekanaut did all the art. We're super excited and anxious for everyone to get their hands on the game and can't wait to hear your feedback. If anyone has questions now or after launch both myself and Ekanaut will be hanging around to answer. Two days to go!
