Rock Of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder Rolls Out This Year

It’s quite nice when a videogame comes along with a pun smack bang in the middle of its title – it makes crafting a witty/cringy/puntastic headline that wee bit easier. It’s also quite nice when that game is a sequel to boulder-rolling comedy action-puzzle-strategy sort-of tower defence ’em up Rock of Ages.

Five years on from the release of its forerunner, Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder [official site] is heading our way “this fall” with even more personified rocks, destructible environments, and Monty Python-flavoured artwork – not to mention the addition of four-player multiplayer.

Downhill Battle: Rock Of Ages Free All Weekend

This is delightful, but can we please, please, please, please, please see more of Zeno Clash 2 now?

I sometimes wonder what life would be like if I was a rock. What would I do if someone stepped on me? How would I wear my moss? Which historical art period would I most enjoy bulldozing if it were tastefully reimagined with a few extra elephants running amok? To its credit, ACE Team’s Rock of Ages does its best to simulate all concerns relevant to aspiring modern/post-modern rocks of all ages. It’s also very, very silly. No, the first (and to my knowledge, only) entry in the slowly-wear-down-artistically-themed-fortresses-with-upgradeable-boulders genre isn’t perfect, but its charms are undeniable. Plus, ACE Team’s still supporting it, and this weekend, you can try out the fruits of their labor for free.

Rock Of Ages Develops Christmas Cheer

Aw!

Father Christmas is a very lazy man. He works one day a year, and spends the rest of his time just sitting there, judging children. What a prick. His elves are the real heroes, and are woefully undersung. For instance, they’re zooming around everywhere, adding Christmas cheer wherever they can. Even reaching the obscurity of ACE Team’s Rock Of Ages. Now featuring snowballs. You can see some lovely pics of that below.

Wot I Think: Rock Of Ages

All tied up with a bow.
What would Chilean crazy-maestros Ace Team do after their mind-curdling FPS melee game, Zeno Clash? Well, it should have been obvious: they set about creating, Rock Of Ages, a competitive boulder-rolling comedy action-puzzle-strategy game set within several centuries of art history. Yep, it was an open niche, and they rolled right in there. It’s out now, and I’m going to have to tell you Wot I Think.

On A Roll: Rock Of Ages Final Trailer


It’s the dawn of the age of the Rock of Ages, or it will be come next Wednesday when it releases via Steam. It’s out on the Xbox already but Ace Team have said that this release date disparity was not because of any exclusivity agreements, “it is just about a small team with a lot of work.” To make up for the minor PC delay, they’re including a complete OST with the PC release, and the PC version even has an exclusive playable “Troll Face” boulder, which is a beautiful thing. Here’s the release trailer, and it is looking like something special: Read the rest of this entry »
