Three former Bungie developers have formed a new studio, and with it revealed new information about their upcoming side scrolling shooter. Moonshot Games, the creation of ex-Bungie developers Michel Bastien, Damián Isla, and Rob Stokes, announced their first game today entitled Fallen Frontier. This 2D shooter tells the story of a man who ventures into the vastness of space with one goal and one goal only: vengeance. The story unfolds as a “noir style mystery”, and this jaded lawman soon discovers the world of Alpha Centauri isn’t all that it seems to be.
According to the official site, you will use “firearms, grenades, and various special abilities” to “confront, confound, and conquer your enemies”. The game will feature a single player campaign as well as co-operative play, fast paced tactical combat, and unique worlds to explore in an original sci-fi universe.
Moonshot Games has yet to announce which platforms it will be released on or when. However, the studio will be showing off the game at this year’s PAX East in Boston, MA. For all the latest updates, check back at their official site regularly. In the meantime, take a look at some of their screenshots and the official announcement trailer.
