You see what I was going for in that headline, right? Alec likes Transformers, and space stuff? And shooting? Right? Okay, well, anyway, the chaps at DoubleSix games send word that their next game is Strike Suit Zero. It’s a space shooter in which you fly some kind of transforming space battle thingum, which is called a Strike Suit. DoubleSix claim this means “ludicrous firepower and awesome abilities.” Their hyperbole is backed up with a secondary steel fist of space-features: “Strike Suit Zero features a dazzling art style, high-speed zero gravity vehicular combat, branching-mission structure, ship designs from renowned Mechanical Design engineer Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex Machina, Steel Battalion) and music from award-winning sound designer Paul Ruskay (Homeworld).”
THEREFORE: SPACE-BIFF! The game is set to arrive in the “first quarter” of 2012. Cinematic teaser trailer below. (Cinematic, in this instance, being a synonym for “pointless”. Shame.)
