11bit Announce Anomaly: Warzone Earth

By Jim Rossignol on October 13th, 2010 at 8:59 am.


WORLD EXCLUSIVE! It’s true. 11bit Studios us send word of their new game, which they are saying is “an arcade approach to the real-time strategy genre.” It’s you versus alien robot baddies in urban environments. 11bit explain: “Prepare to be thrown into urban environments overrun by an alien scourge, and take command of an intense tactical combat experience. As the on-field commander, using advanced heavy armor military vehicles to create the perfect squad, plan your tactical route and fight to destroy the enemy machines.” Sounds like we can expect this to be a fairly fast-paced top-down RTS, which some fancy anomalous visuals. The core game is apparently a story-driven campaign with “dynamically changing objectives”. They’ve supplied a few more images, which you can see below. Examine them for clues!

    That tactical map before mission reminds me of Ranibow Six… It looks simplified but I definitely want to see what will they do with the idea.

    Is that a HUD on his back? It is, isn’t it? I have solved a great mystery with my optical orbs.

  3. Rich says:

    Looks like a tower defence game, where you play the attacker.

      I thought the same. There are a couple of flash games that try to do this and I suppose this genre hasn’t gotten to the commercial market yet. They were fun, not particularly deep, but fun.

    • The Innocent says:

      That would actually be pretty cool. The only reverse-tower defense game I’ve played that seemed to work was the mode in Plants versus Zombies where you played the zombies. That was actually quite good. Hope this works.

      So you mean Tower Offense!

    Herzog Zwei :D

    Those screenshots have a little to much blur for my liking, can’t really see whats going on.

    • Rich says:

      Especially the second one. Makes me think Specsavers screwed up my prescription again.

  6. Bluebreaker says:

    Reverse tower defense?

  7. SpaecKow says:

    Game seems very pretty – give us the higher res version of these!

  8. rrgvwrcda says:

    It’s Tower Defense.

  9. 11 bit studios says:

    Yep, this is more-less the idea, however please notice, that thanks to the fact, that you’re the attacking side, you have multiple tactics to choose from. And if you add squad management to this, you’ll have a nice set of tactical possibilites in our game.

    That first screenshot made me think that this was a Universe At War sequel. Of course, that would have meant somone had actually bought the first one.

  15. 11 bit studios says:
