Indie Spotlight: Omegalodon
Have you played the new game Omegalodon? As much a team effort as it is a chaotic, anything goes, open world shooter/fighter; North of Earth’s indie title is a new take on cooperative play. Released just over a week ago, you now have the power to either destroy or save the retro-inspired nameless city around you.
“Omegalodon is a third-person multiplayer action game where players compete by attacking/defending the city. The Red Team is comprised of police and soldiers armed with an array of military vehicles and explosive weaponry. The Green Team is comprised of Omegalodon, a 100-foot shark monster, and the Enviros, equipped with a healing beam. The game plays like a backward tower-defense game, but with free-roaming capability and fast-paced, realtime action. Omegalodon's objective is a nuclear containment dome at the city center. The round will end if it is destroyed, the timer reaches zero, or if Omegalodon dies.”
Personally the game reminds me of Fat Princess, another chaotic team-based game where everyone has their own agenda that will hopefully amount to their team’s victory.
