Other Ocean will be providing a first look at the title to select press during the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, June 7-9, 2011. Press interested in scheduling an appointment should contact Jerry Whitehead at Reverb Communications (jerry@reverbinc.com).


In development under license from Paramount Digital Entertainment, The War of the Worlds is a dark and breathtaking new vision of the classic H.G. Wells novel, retold as a single player, 2D action-adventure. The gameplay narrative parallels the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation, but introduces a new story arc, characters, locations, and sub-plots.


With gameplay paying homage to classic cinematic platformers such as Flashback, Out of This World and Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, players follows the exploits of an unknown everyman struggling to escape the Martian invasion of London and rescue his family. Forced to think through insurmountable odds, players will outsmart an army of alien tripods and other menacing war machines as they make their way through a landscape of total devastation.
