STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Arcadelia AB, an indie developer unbeknownst to many, is pleased to announce the launch of Steam Wars public beta for Facebook. Now available, Steam Wars marks a point in time where indie developers have had enough of seeing yet another farming game clone hit the market and decided to take action.
Steam Wars: Apoteos is a Steam Punk style Tower Defense game aimed at a hardcore gaming audience. With AAA level graphics, real life opponents and a plethora of honorable heroes Steam Wars is probably the most ambitious Tower Defense game ever produced for web platforms.
“Facebook is a great gaming platform with enormous potential. We aim to show hard core gamers that Facebook can be a gaming platform even for their kind of games.” said Gustav Eklånge, CEO of Arcadelia “As indie developers it is our duty to focus on true innovation and compelling gaming experiences rather than finding the perfect monetization scheme for some big already existing IP.”
“Gone is the time when I could spend countless hours playing World of Warcraft. Steam Wars allows me to play a proper game with my friends even if we are not online at the same time, it makes a world of difference to a father of two like myself.” said Gustav Linde, game designer.
