New game development studio, Digital Harmony Games, has announced what their first title they plan to release on multiple platforms will be. Called Dragons vs. Unicorns, it will pit both species against each other in a battle for supremacy which has been a long time coming we think.
According to the back story for this upcoming game, the Dragons have been looking down on all the creatures in the world, especially the Unicorns, mostly due from the fact they love candy, glitter, rainbows and things of that nature. So what would any self-respecting species of Dragon do when they hate something? They try to kill them all!
Dragons vs. Unicorns will be an multipllayer action game where player will pick a side, whether it’s the Dragons or the Unicorns, and will battle it out with the opposing faction. In order to win you have to destory your enemy’s tower. While you help defend your side of the faction you will also be sending out minions, lobbing objects, casting abilities and more in order to destroy the opposing factions tower. While the game is centered around PvP gameplay against other people, there is a single player mode as well.
Digital Harmony Games is really putting a lot of features into this game, especially since it will be cross-platform compatible with iOS, PC and Mac versions as well. This means you will have plenty of people to fight across all platforms on your Android device. Aside from that though there will be a VS Store, Real-time game lobby, persistent player data, social connectivity and a lot more according to Digital Harmony Games.
So when does this heavyweight battle begin? Dragons vs Unicorns is slated for release in early 2012 so we still have a little bit of a wait before we can play this game. The concept does sound good though so we will definitely try to nab a copy as soon as we can and try it out. It is planned to be shown off at GDC Online 2011 so hopefully some footage will come out. Full press release below for your reading pleasure.
