PRESS RELEASE: Sydney based developer Nnooo
has announced they will be publishing ORBITOR™ on console.
ORBITOR is a visually stunning action adventure game
which takes place in space themed environments ranging from
nebulas to complex orbital systems. Within each space system
players must control a space probe named ORBITOR to lock it onto
objects, orbit them to gather speed, destroy them and collect the
energy life forms they release. The probe is an autonomous and self
repairing Artificial Intelligence returning to its place of origin
complete with upgraded abilities and a new mission - to stop its
ORBITOR is being developed by Australian studio Evil Aliens. The
game is currently on Steam Greenlight™ and was recently
included in the Warp Zoned PAXpocalypse List covering The Best of
PAX Prime 2013.
"We've had our eye on ORBITOR for some time now," said Nic Watt,
Creative Director at Nnooo. "We saw the game at last year's EB Expo
in Sydney and thought it would look great on console. It's also got
an amazingly atmospheric soundtrack which draws you right into the
game. We're really excited to be working with the Evil Aliens team
on their first project."

The orbital systems within the game's levels are only a small
part of a much larger network of systems that fill the entire
nebula. They all work together like a giant machine. The exact
purpose of the machine or who created it are not revealed until the
last section of the game. Through the ORBITOR the player is
destroying the machine and its defence systems piece by piece as
they make their way to the centre of the nebula.
"This is a great opportunity for us to get our game across
multiple platforms," said Dale Ward, Director of Evil Aliens. We've
been developing ORBITOR for a couple of years now and we're really
happy with how it's progressing. Teaming up with Nnooo to get the
game on to console was a no-brainer."
"We are working closely with Evil Aliens to bring ORBITOR to
console," said Watt "As the game is developing it is important that
we make sure any platform it comes to is a great fit and that
ORBITOR makes the best use of each platform's
capabilities. We'll have more details in the near future."
ORBITOR marks the second title Nnooo is publishing. Last month
the studio announced it was publishing 3
Sprockets' highly successful 3D strategy game Cubemen 2 on Wii
