Magic Chopstick Games, makers of the Jardinains! series, is delighted to announce the upcoming release of their newest title, Obliteracy.
Obliteracy is a word game set in a utopian future where energy is generated from language itself. Word-warriors pilot enormous mechanized robots in a tournament to prove themselves worthy of the title of Champion--and to earn the chance to craft the future of the world.
Obliteracy's core gameplay mixes the familiar mechanics of tile-based word games with a variety of bonuses, board configurations, and contenders to create a fresh, dynamic challenge in every match. Battles are fought using wildly varying tile sets, each with its own configuration of powerup tiles that can boost damage and energy gain. Players choose from one of eight different playable challengers, each with distinctive strengths, weaknesses, and play styles. Each character possesses unique special abilities which, properly used, can instantly turn the tide of a pitched struggle.
In Story Mode, players face increasingly challenging opponents in eight distinct and engrossing story arcs, all culminating in battles against the Codexicron, the enigmatic curator of all humanity's knowledge. Multiplayer lets you challenge friends and strangers from across the globe in single-match play, and Quick Play drops you into a randomly generated encounter that adapts over time to match your skill level.
With dozens of board configurations and character matchups, Obliteracy demands quick wit and constantly evolving strategies to ensure victory.
The prerelease version of Obliteracy is now playable at Obliteracy.com. Obliteracy will officially release on September 14, and will be available on Steam, the iOS App Store, and direct download for Windows, OS X, and Android.
