UPPSALA, Sweden, 31th July, 2014 - You arm your mech with some exotic weapons and slingshot yourself with the gravitational pull from planets to battle your opponents. You fly through space with high velocity and with a bit of skill you manage to destroy the other mechs and now you're in their base, wrecking havoc on their structures.  Defeat your opponents with the planet scorching Kasainami, the black hole generating Phase orb or some other exotic weapon, the choice is yours.

Orbital Gear is a high speed multiplayer shooter featuring classic arcade gameplay. You choose one of four mechs and pick two out of twelve different weapons and manoeuvre your mech through space, using gravity of planets to gain speed.

Orbital Gear has two game modes: classic deathmatch with free-for-all fighting and Orbital Warfare where the goal is to destroy the opposing team's base. Your opponents are defeated either by having their base destroyed by direct firepower or through the collection of the fallen competitor's Energy Cores, which are used to charge a super weapon that destroys the opponent's base.

Orbital Gear will be available on the 7th of August through Steam and other digital download platforms for PC, Mac and Linux.
