[prMac.com] Asheville, North Carolina - Pixeljam Games, makers of Indiecade nominee and IGF honorable mentioned "Potatoman Seeks the Troof" and IGF Finalist "Gamma Bros", have announced the imminent release of Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork, a collaboration with comic book artist James Kochalka. It's a unique hybrid of Galaga-style shoot 'em up, simple platforming action and Saturday morning cartoon. Help Glorkian Warrior defend his asteroid against an endless onslaught of alien invaders, and be prepared for somewhat unexpected results!
In early 2010, an age before crowdfunding was a universally recognized concept, Pixeljam successfully ran a kickstarter campaign with James Kochalka to raise funds for an idea called Glorkian Warrior. After years of experiments, iterations and trials, Pixeljam are proud to introduce the Glorkian universe to the world in compact, mobile-friendly comedic endless shooter.
* Endearing characters and all-ages humor
* A unique combination of shoot-em-up and simple platforming action
* Procedurally generated arial invader flight patterns and formations of the Galaxian persuasion
* A wicked arsenal of weapons and powerups, including tennis balls and the legendary "Flarf Gun"
Glorkian Warrior promises a simple and refreshing mobile presentation: No IAP, no complicated leveling-up systems, just good old fashioned entertainment like your great grandpa used to enjoy. The Trials of Glork will be available for iOS devices in March of 2014.
