European Selected Projects Awards 2013 Nominee "Astro Lords:
Oort Cloud" MMO Goes to Kickstarter
Astro Lords : Oort Cloud is a cross-platform massive multiplayer online 3D space strategy. The game takes place in the Oort Cloud - a huge formation of scattered asteroids lying beyond the borders of the Solar System. Each player begins the game as an Astro Lord controlling a single asteroid stronghold. As the game progresses, more asteroids can be seized through battles with other players.
Astro Lords: Oort Cloud puts emphasis on several key components: real-time space battles against AI or other Astro Lords, enhancing asteroids by building factories, mines, defenses and space ships, and exploration of the Oort Cloud to find resource-abundant places and to trade and communicate with other players. Combined together, the components assemble into balanced and captivating gameplay with serious strategic and tactical depth.
The perfect combination of excellent graphics and immersive gameplay didn't pass unnoticed. Game Connection Europe has nominated Astro Lords for European Selected Projects Awards 2013 in the "Social, Casual & Online" Category among 184 games reviewed.
Astro Lords: Oort Cloud is currently a beta, and on December 12 Aratog LLC launched a Kickstarter campaign to speed up the release of the game.
