Finnish game studio Epic Owl Ltd, founded by Rovio veterans late last year, has revealed the strategic multiplayer space battler Starside Arena, the developer’s debut title. Starside Arena is slated for worldwide release for iOS on 10 November, with the Android version to follow later in the month.
Set in the year “4000-something”, Starside Arena hands players the tools to design and build a spacecraft to dominate arena battles in a dynamically changing, futuristic game world.
“We are thrilled to introduce Starside Arena to core fans of the space battle and builder genre,” says Epic Owl CEO Juha Vainio. “During soft launch the game showed an extraordinary retention with players coming back again and again.”
In the world of Starside Arena, player-made ships are constantly evolving, with weak designs falling into obscurity and the best ones rising to dominance.
“It has been exciting to witness the players’ creativity in their unique ship designs,” adds Epic Owl CCO Risto Holmström, “and we look forward to seeing how many more thousands of designs emerge when we launch the game worldwide.”
