Nnooo, the studio that brought us escapeVektor, Spirit Hunters and Pop, is spreading the love and turning to publishing. The newest game on its roster: Orbitor, an award-winning space adventure from fellow Aussies Evil Aliens.
Dale Ward, Director of Evil Aliens, originally planned for the game to be PC-only, before Nnooo stepped in:
This is a great opportunity for us to get our game across multiple platforms. We’ve been developing ORBITOR for a couple of years now and we’re really happy with how it’s progressing. Teaming up with Nnooo to get the game on to console was a no-brainer.
Orbitor puts you in control of a space probe. Your mysterious task is to return to your place of origin and stop your creator – but it’s not as simple as just zooming back across the galaxy. To gain speed, first find an object, lock onto it, orbit a few times to gather speed and then destroy the object to move on. As the object disappears, make sure you collect the energy life forms it releases – you’ll need them in your quest!
Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo explains the deal:
We’ve had our eye on ORBITOR for some time now. We saw the game at last year’s EB Expo in Sydney and thought it would look great on console.
As the game is developing it is important that we make sure any platform it comes to is a great fit and that ORBITOR makes the best use of each platform’s capabilities. We’ll have more details in the near future.
Orbitor is actually the second title Nnooo is publishing: Last month, the company confirmed plans to bring Cubemen 2 to Wii U.
The game is currently on Steam Greenlight for PC fans, but Nnooo is working to bring Orbital to unnamed consoles some time in 2014.
