Developer Asmodev Studio and publisher Ultimate Games S.A have announced today that their “painfully generic” tower defense game Ultimate Summer will be releasing on PS5 and PS4, as well as Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, with the latter getting the Early Access version of the game from January 15th, 2021.
The game is a tower defense game that combines elements of classic shooters in a single-player mayhem filled rush of blood. You’ll be able to build towers, set traps, and blast away monsters in what the developer is saying is “the bloodiest tower defense game in history.” Bold claim. We’ll see how that pans out, but from the look of the trailer up above, it may actually be true.
“We wanted to create a painfully generic tower defense title. In part, we’ve succeeded, because it is indeed an old chestnut of a game. In part, we haven’t, because it tastes fresh and bloody. It’s because we’ve also added mechanics typical for other genres. Gathering resources, a selection of weapons to choose from, shops, skill development, Heaven, Hell, aliens, blood…” – raves Mim, one of the creators.
“It’s a low-budget release available at a fair, low price. Ultimate Summer was born out of the fascination with Castle Fight, a mod for Warcraft III. We’re not very creative, so we just stole some of the solutions, in tribute to the original devs” – admits Mim.
Well… at least the developers are painfully honest, right? At the very least, nobody will be going into this one with great expectations…
