has announced Frost Wars: The Rise of Fatty Sparkles
, a PC collectively-designed turn-based strategy game which will be playable to the public for the first time at PAX from August 31 to September 2. Lantern is currently building the game with the Unity engine, and has been soliciting ideas from players in order to guide and influence the game’s development. Players testing the pre-alpha version have already seen hundreds of their suggestions deployed into the game's weekly releases.
Players can jump into the turn-based Arctic madness with two primary modes of play. Speed Play is a synchronous game mode that allows up to four friends, or random opponents, to join together and battle it out in one sitting. Extended Play is an asynchronous game mode that offers gamers a more relaxed style of play spread over multiple days, allowing multiple battles to be fought at the same time.
A closed alpha for Frost Wars will begin in September and the game is set to be demoed at this year's PAX Prime in Seattle, WA. Six screenshots
and a video have been inserted in our download area.
