So we’ve been working on a super secret project these past few months. A companion mobile app for LOD. Basically, instead of doing the usual run-of-the-mill companion app, I decided that we would do a full blown game which would also serve as a companion (e.g. you could look up weapons info) app for LOD.
So Line Of Defense Tactics was born.
Deciding what sort of game to do was easy; however designing and developing it was clearly another. So we contracted a third-party, CapitalJMedia, to help us develop it using Unity4.
The game uses all the same assets (characters, weapons, vehicles etc) from the LOD game, but is a real-time tactics game. The mission storyline is culled from issue #0 of the LOD comic written by Ricardo Sanchez and published by DC Comics last year. Rick wrote the mission storyline scripts for each of the missions.
It is not designed or developed to be over-the-top or even cutting edge, but rather to serve as a great reference game that ties in the comic, the mobile game and the LOD game together.
As you can see from the screen shots, it is coming along great. All things being equal, we expect it to be out by the end of the year for browsers as well as iOS and Android devices.
