Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

GarageGames have revealed some details about the mystery jetpack game that we caught a glimpse of last month. It’s called Fallen Empire: Legions and will feature over on GarageGames new web-browser gaming portal, InstantAction.com. “Legions won’t be just any ordinary jewel matching web game; in terms of graphics and gameplay it will set a new benchmark of what the future of gaming will be on the web,” said project director Tim Aste. He’ll be right too, since not a huge number of browser games currently feature Tribes-style jetpack battle action. Watch out, Tetris clones.

GARAGEGAMES ANNOUNCES Fallen Empire: Legions FOR INSTANTACTION.COM

3D MULTIPLAYER FIRST PERSON SHOOTER COMING TO THE WEB IN EARLY 2008

EUGENE, OREGON – January 17, 2008 – After months of rumors and a recent video leak on the web, GarageGames today announced initial details for Fallen Empire: Legions, a first person shooter for the recently announced 3D online game platform, InstantAction.com.

“This is a first person shooter built by hardcore gamers who are wildly passionate about the genre,” said Tim Aste, project director for Fallen Empire: Legions. “The game design allows for us to create a unique experience that brings FPS gaming back to its roots. Legions won’t be just any ordinary jewel matching web game; in terms of graphics and gameplay it will set a new benchmark of what the future of gaming will be on the web.”

“We created InstantAction to give ourselves and the rest of the development community an outlet to make the games they want to play. Rather than churning out sequels or licensed games, we’re working with developers focused on creating cool gameplay,” said Josh Williams, CEO of GarageGames. “Fallen Empire: Legions will be InstantAction’s most advanced example of this so far. Marrying core games with the accessibility and social power of the web is a huge step forward in the industry, and I personally can’t wait for this game to be released so I can hop on and start playing everyone.”

Developed internally by GarageGames, Fallen Empire: Legions combines distinctive freedom of movement with fast paced first-person combat to create strategic, team-oriented gameplay. The InstantAction platform has allowed Fallen Empire: Legions to leverage the best of what the web has to offer, creating an evolving experience for players that can constantly be improved upon. This is first-person warfare at its fastest and finest!

    If it’s even a smidge as good as Tribes was, I wants it now, with none of this prevaricating delay nonsense.

    Seeing the legions footage from moons ago made me feel warm inside, seeing this makes me a dribbling drooling tribes fanboy mess.

    But that Standard Name : Yawn.
    (which doesn’t mean the game won’t be great, but I wish they used some more imagination for the title :p)

    I’m more interested in the InstantAction thing than this game in particular. If it actually delivers and achieves popularity, it could end up being pretty awesome. Here’s hoping.

    Fallen Empire: Leigons
    Star Siege : Tribes?

  5. I_still_love_Okami says:

    They could have named it “Science Fiction First Person Shooter”…

    Oh, wait. That name’s allready taken, I think it’s the next game from the developers of “Fantasy Wars”…..

    I am pretty much pro-GG si I will not opine about Instant Action nor Legions.

    What makes me smile tonight, was my surprise on my own thought when I see the headline on RPS: “Oh. Lets see what this guys say about this!”. I dont know how, or when, but I become an avid, regular reader :)

    BTW, you cheated, you were not brave enough to say Anything about it uh?

    I haven’t played it yet, so I don’t really have much of an opinion. Since you asked, I think the idea of matching people for fights through a web browser is awesome, but I’m still sceptical as to how these browser-based FPS games are going to perform.

  8. Novack says:

    Much appreciated your personalized answer ;)
    Keep up the good work!

    There was a quake-ish flash (I think, could have been Java) FPS that ran in your web browser. Can’t remember the name of it, wasn’t very good, but it ran surprisingly well.
