Tower defence game 'Savage Moon' is expected to let the munitions fly today as it goes live on the PlayStation Network.
Human bases must defend against waves of "armoured bugs" looking to boot them from the mineral rich rock, something free market capitalism cannot tolerate. Death to commie lovin' bugs!
"All the tower defence games we’d played on the net were pretty abstract, but we wanted to give the player a sense of purpose and threat," posts Producer Ana Kronschnabl on the PlayStation.Blog.
The story goes that "humans have landed on an asteroid to mine valuable minerals from it, however as they burrow into the ground, the sentient rock produces its own auto-immune response, much in the same way that the human body produces white-blood cells in response to an infection."
"Except here, the response is in the form of massive chitinous armoured bugs! (Or Insectocytes as we call them)."
Savage Moon is now available on PSN for $9.99. See the clip below for some moon style savagery:
