We’ve been working on a project in the studio. We had to keep it very quiet. The team had a special code name and built an Enigma machine for project status updates (well, they thought about building one, How To videos were watched). Now the veil of secrecy can be lifted…
Today, after over a year of working with our studio, Killerfish Games announced that War on The Sea will be coming to PC and Mac very soon. It is the fourth release from the South Australian independent and awesome game developer Killerfish Games, following multiple naval themed games on both desktop and mobile platforms including Pacific Fleet, Atlantic Fleet and Cold Waters. We love working with this indie developer because they make excellent games without advertisements or in-app purchases or pay-to-win transactions.
The game is looking amazing and we’re looking forward to downloading it and commanding warship task forces, supply convoys and submarines along with tactically using aircraft to secure the South Pacific during World War II.
Monkeystack partnered with Killerfish Games to produce the 3D models and textures for a full fleet of destroyers, aircraft carriers, cruisers and battleships as well as planes, submarines, torpedos and depth charges. All the models are authentically recreated from hundreds of drawing, plans and reference images. The team did an incredible job.
Here are the storyline and gameplay…
1942: The world is at war
The Japanese Empire expands throughout the Pacific where Allied forces attempt to halt its spread. A desperate struggle for control of the Solomon Islands is now underway. How will you protect your transports as they deliver troops and supplies in the South Pacific? Will you deploy precious aircraft carriers to provide air cover? Do you screen the area with submarines? Or attempt to lure the enemy navy into a decisive surface engagement?
The game boasts some great features:
- Real time naval combat
- Play as Allied Forces or Imperial Japan
- Over 50 classes of playable ships
- Dynamic campaign
- Tactical control of aircraft (not a flight simulator)
- Fight fires, counter flood compartments and repair ships
- Sink ships using realistic buoyancy physics
- Historical missions based on actual naval engagements
War on the Sea is coming soon to PC and Mac. As soon as it’s released for download, we’ll let you know.
