Tiki Games Inc, the team responsible for the real time strategy game Galaxy's End on PSP, are developing a new title for PS3 to be released via PSN. Novastrike is an arcade style shooter set for release in the second quarter of 2008.
NOVASTRIKE is a top-down arcade shooter in which the player takes control of a prototype advanced Scythe fighter and combats invading aliens over various planetary surfaces. The player fights both air and ground opponents ranging from enemy fighters to capital ships and ultimately an end-Boss. As the player progresses the Scythe unlocks its full potential through upgrading its weapon systems and overall capabilities.
Seven expansive challenging stages driven by objective-based goals
Free-roaming flight: there aren't any rails here allowing flight in any direction
Progressive weapon acquisition and upgrade system: as the player successfully collects weapon drops from enemy ships the weapons themselves become available to the Scythe - there are nine base weapon systems, each with three subsequent upgrade levels
Air and ground targets: two separate weapon systems allow the player to combat both air and ground opponents
Multi-sectioned enemies where individual components can be destroyed; for example, Carriers have hangars that launch fighters - these hangars can be destroyed independently of destroying the Carrier preventing the Carrier from launching additional fighters
Multitude of enemies: the player will combat enemy fighters, bombers, kamikazes, aces, carriers, and destroyers, all leading to an end-Boss fight
You're not alone: friendly fighters, bombers, and destroyers will aid you in your efforts to vanquish the Draelus invasion
DualShock 3 support
Uses Tiki Games own graphics engine technology
Continuing support: Tiki Games will be developing additional content for NOVASTRIKE
NOVASTRIKE is targeting a second-quarter 2008 release on the PLAYSTATION®3 via the PLAYSTATION®Network.
