To be playable At PAX Prime this weekend as part of the Indie Megabooth
Arcen Games is proud to unveil our latest title Shattered Haven, a 2D top-down action adventure game for 1-2 players with some roguelike elements sprinkled in.
Set in a world enveloped by the roaming Grays and various other violent creatures, players will have to rely on resourcefulness and quick-thinking to solve puzzles in frantic environments. Utilize tools, traps, and weapons to clear all of the surrounding Grays across each of the 100+ hand-crafted levels.
Along with a main campaign filled with twists and multiple endings, the game will also include dozens (if not hundreds) of bonus levels to play, a level editor, and more.
To celebrate the announcement, Arcen will have a playable demo on hand at PAX in Seattle this weekend at booth 868 as part of the Indie Megabooth. A teaser video for the upcoming PC/Mac title has been released as well and is now available online to view.
About Arcen Games
Arcen Games entered the PC indie scene in 2009 with their cult classic AI War: Fleet Command, which was named the 40th best-reviewed PC game of the year by MetaCritic. Their second year was a busy one, seeing the release of The Zenith Remnant, the first full expansion for AI War; Tidalis, an innovative block-based puzzle with casual appeal and hardcore depth; and Children of Neinzul, a micro-expansion for AI War with all profits benefiting the Child's Play charity, of which Arcen is a platinum sponsor.
AI War's third and largest expansion Light of the Spire marked Arcen's first release of 2011, with the rest of the company's focus being devoted to their most massive project yet: A Valley Without Wind, which released in 2012. The remainder of 2012 is a another busy time for the team, as they ready AI War's fourth expansion Ancient Shadows, an complete rework to the art of A Valley Without Wind, and their recently announced top-down survival game Shattered Haven for release prior to the end of the year. Originally a one-man shop, Arcen Games has grown to have half a dozen part-time or fulltime contributors to its various titles.
