This vehicular M.O.B.A. (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) from Punchers Impact will be hitting the PC via digital distribution later this year.
M.O.B.A. games are still a relatively new genre, despite the original DotA being around for years, and although there are a few available now, I cannot think of a single one that is based around vehicular combat. This fact alone is building my anticipation for Crasher, which is offering something other than a fantasy setting. Punchers Impact, who officially opened their doors only last year, is focusing on creating original downloadable games for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC platforms. They seem to be off to a good start.
â€œIt is very important for us to be involved at the heart of our industry by offering gamers the games they expect,â€ explains Thierry Bensoussan, Managing Director of Punchers Impact. â€œBy building a pool of creative talent within a single studio, weâ€™re ensuring that Punchers Impact has solid financial foundations allowing it to focus on developing innovative projects. Mission accomplished: Punchers Impact already has around forty talented employees who have worked for the biggest French and English speaking studios from Free Radical to EA.â€
Both the game, Crasher, and the studio, Punchers Impact, are ones to watch.
