11 bit Studios Announces Anomaly 2 For Mac – Trailer And Dev Diary Online

A couple of weeks ago, 11 bit studios (Anomaly Warzone Earth, Anomaly Korea) asked us all to pre-order its next game at half price, sight unseen. Well, the time has come to lift the curtain on that mystery game.

Anomaly 2 is planned for a Q2 2013 release on Mac, PC and Linux, bringing the sci-fi strategy series started on iOS to desktop computers for the first time. Along with the announcement, the development team has released a preview trailer (above) and developer diary, the latter of which is a very honest look at what it takes to make an independent game these days.

Anomaly2

Anomaly 2 takes place years after the invasion of Earth in 2018, when the alien machines have taken over. Humans are all but extinct, banding together in huge convoys to search for food, supplies, and giant monster towers to blow up. Anomaly 2 is a real-time strategy tower offense game with plenty of tactical route planning and unit level ups.

Of course, this is also the core gameplay of the previous two games, out on iOS. So, the team decided to kick it up a notch with war mech morphing troops, a multiplayer experience to pit you against your friends on opposite sides of the conflict, and a new single-player campaign that will be bigger, better, and more epic. EPIC! There will also be multiple endings depending on your approach to the gameplay.

Seriously, though, the game looks gorgeous, thanks to a new visual engine the team put together for this specific release. The aforementioned developer diary should be of interest to anyone interested in game development, as well.

Anomaly 2 will run you $15 when released, unless you purchased the half-price pre-order. It should release sometime in the second quarter of this year.
