Zeno Clash dev announces Rock of Ages

Zeno Clash developer ACE Team is working on more than just the follow-up to their first-person puncher. The indie studio has announced Rock of Ages, a download-only castle crasher of a game.

It’s a strategy title with a simple setup which, since their press materials are always entertaining, we’ll let publishers Atlus explain: “Two castles stand opposed, bridged by an uneven, narrow pathway. One is yours, and you’re quite fond of it. See how the parapets catch the sunlight ever so stylishly? The other is your enemy’s; they’re a jerk, and their crappy crenellations are driving down your property values. Also, their castle sucks, justification enough to try crush it using an enormous rolling stone. Unfortunately, they’ll have a chance to plan and build up some security, doing everything they can to derail your razing rock. Get through their defenses and you’re one step closer to crushing their unsightly tower (see also: their hopes and dreams). But don’t take your turn for granite. Once your turn is over, your opponent’s begins…”

See the trailer above to see the game in action.

Rock of Ages is scheduled for a ‘spring 2011’ release. Platforms will be announced “soon”.
