This game is inspiring. As a Art Major and Monty Python fan I may be biased but when Rock of Ages II, Bigger & Boulder hit my inbox, I knew had to share it with everyone here. This game is from ACE Teams & Atlus and has the artistic direction of art meets Monty Python and mixes gameplay of Tower Defense, Rocket League-esque Ball destruction, with history lesson combined since it takes place at major events in history. You absolutely must watch the trailer below is phenomenal.
Rock of Ages II, Bigger & Boulder will be available digitally worldwide for Steam, PS4, and Xbox One at the end of August! Here is the release schedule:
- Steam – Americas and Europe on Aug. 28
- PlayStation 4 – Americas on Aug. 28 and Europe on Aug. 29
- Xbox One – Americas and Europe on Aug. 29
In this part Tower Defense, part Racing, part Art History lesson, and all-smashing game, you’ll help the Greek Titan Atlas recover the weight on his shoulders as he runs through the ages. The problem is various famous rulers from Art History are getting in his way. Impressionism, Surrealism, Late Gothic, Renaissance, and more all are represented in the game, in amazing detail thanks to the power of Unreal Engine 4.
