The creators of the original de Blob
(i.e. the flash game, not the THQ ports) have revealed they are working on an original real-time strategy game for Nintendo's WiiWare service
. Romino Games' Swords & Soldiers
is a side-scrolling RTS with three opposing factions and split-screen multiplayer. The term "side-scrolling RTS," together with the screenshots, remind us a bit of Dragon Force
(although equally cool, we mean the Sega Saturn title, not the band).
No price has been revealed for the game, currently placed in a Q4 2008 launch window. Consider our interests officially piqued.
