Little Orbit to Release Falling Skies Game

Little Orbit has announced the autumn release of its Falling Skies game for Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360 and Steam. The tactical strategy RPG will be set on the invaded Earth of the critically acclaimed TV series.

Players will take command of a squad of recently rescued survivors who have been recruited into the human resistance movement to save the Earth from alien invaders. They do this by fighting in covert combat missions against the Espheni, rescuing and recruiting other survivors as they progress. Players will enjoy a unique storyline that includes familiar heroes from the TV show.

Our goal for Falling Skies is to recreate the humanistic elements from the television series so that players can grow with the characters as they play through intuitively designed strategies,” said Matt Scott, President of Little Orbit.  “We want to bring that same character driven storyline derived from the series to the game all while making it easy to navigate for every player.”

The game features hundreds of character skills and equipment upgrades to unlock, allowing the player to adapt their squad to the situation or their own play style. On top of this, the game features dynamic enemy AI and map randomization which is designed to make every mission feel different.
