If you’ve got a better memory than me, you might recall that Derek Smart is making a new MMO. It’s called Line of Defense, and this news story isn’t really about it. Instead, it’s about a spin-off
turn-based real time game called Line of Defense Tactics.
Based on the video footage (below) it looks suspiciously as if it’s been designed with phones in mind (lots of references to “tapping” and the like.) That doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be bad, but hopes for a new XCOM might be premature.
Your four Galactic Command (GALCOM) marines will embark on various space missions of space importance in the Line of Defense universe, and apparently can be equipped with weapons of mass destruction. That sounds a bit war crime-y to me. So obviously, as IncGamers resident videogames war crime expert, I’m now a bit more interested.
