Okay. I am a bit of a Warhammer 40,000 fan. It’s a confession I keep closely guarded. But, maybe yesterday, you heard the “Squeeeeee!” of a twenty-something game writer from anywhere across our great land. Yes, it was me.
From the independent studio Total Control came word of a new Space Hulk game, slated for 2013. Described as “a 3D digital turn based strategy game that recreates the classic claustrophobic board game experience for single player and multiplayer cross-platform play between PC, Mac and on iOS,” I am all in. If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good table-top RPG. If there’s a second, it’s Space Marines. If there’s a third, it’s gotta be slaying all who oppose humankind.
Other sultry bits on the go a bit like this: “Players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers. Based on the “Sin of Damnation” campaign from the 3rd edition board game, Space Hulk includes a robust 12 mission single-player and co-operative campaign.” Add in some confirmed cross-platform play like Hero Academy and a dash of level-making and sharing, and you’ve got yourself a good time.
So, here’s hoping that we can see a bit more from this title and studio before embarking on a battle of epic, Holy Terran scope aboard the derelict Space Hulk. I’m excited, I’m excited, I’m excited. Hit the site for more info here.
