Developer secures initial funding to begin development of original IP.

Guadalajara, Mexico - November 23, 2011 - Larva Game Studios is proud to announce the development of their first self-published title, Last Day on Earth. Based on an original IP, Last Day on Earth is a cooperative third-person shooter slated for console and PC release in late 2012. In order to better facilitate the development of LDOE, along with other current and future projects, Larva is taking steps to expand globally.

“These are very exciting times for us,” said Jorge Morales, CEO of Larva Game Studios.“We have been working closely with the Mexican government for some time, and along with a private investor, we now have the capacity to expand our studio and begin a new era. That new era begins with Last Day on Earth.”

Added Jorge,“We have a great talent base around us, and we are continually looking to make the team stronger. I won’t deny that LDOE is an ambitious game, sure, but without ambition you are hard pressed to innovate.”

Hunkered down on The Island, an abandoned military island city which is divided into vast zones, you are part of a small band of surviving humans that must take their last stand against the genocidal alien invaders. To ensure your survival, you need to collect a variety of weapons, explosives, traps and items which you can combine and customize into more powerful creations.

Last Day on Earth allows use of the highly detailed environments to your advantage by strategically and sometimes cooperatively destroying areas– and whatever you do, whether it is laying a trap or taking out a group of aliens with a building’s wall, the persistent world will keep track of everything within that game session, creating a unique experience every time you play.

Last Day on Earth is a cooperative third-person survival shooter with a strong emphasis on strategic play, and playable with up to 8 players online. Check out www.larvagamestudios.com for more information in the coming months.
