announced that AirMech, their isometric action/strategy hybrid, has just entered closed testing on Steam. Early access is available to anyone up for liking AirMech on Facebook or Google+.
AirMech mixes arcade-style twin-stick shooting with hands-on strategy
elements. You control a mech that can turn into a jet, allowing you to
transition between ground and air combat at any time. In the air, you
can also pick up and fly your units around. A version of the game is
available to play online right now.
The Steam version of the game will include new features, but beyond
achievements Carbon Games aren’t willing to announce anything yet.
Airmech dazzled our Neanderthal brains back in January
for being a full game that ran in a browser, so having it arrive on a
more traditional service like Steam should help us cope with this scary
new future we live in. That said, we’ll totally accept a scary new
future if it involves fighter jets that turn into giant robots with
swords. Fingers crossed.
