Description

Worbital is space war in real-time with tension-filled gameplay and gravitational destruction. Each player commandeers a planet, building support structures and increasingly powerful weapons. Use your weaponry to destroy enemy planets and wreak total havoc to the solar system. The goal: be the last civilization standing!

History

Worbital is developed by Team Jolly Roger in co-operation with Advanced Interactive Gaming. Spun off from the turn-based Interplanetary, Worbital attempts to realize interplanetary war in real-time, emphasizing hype-filled gameplay and gravitational destruction. It is unshackled from the grounded and deliberate style of its predecessor, in favor of unrealistic fun.

Features

  • INTERPLANETARY ARTILLERY WARFARE — Exploit the shifting gravity by maneuvering your shots across space to inflict maximum damage on the enemy. Sling asteroids, create black holes, make it rain with solar flares!
  • COSMIC CHAOS — Planets blow up. They might take other planets with them. Then the sun explodes. Then the real fun begins.
  • PREPARATION, BUILDING, TACTICS — Railguns, Lasers, World Rammers, Magnets, Orbit Boosters, Shield Defenses, Attack Ships, Colonizers… Pick your loadout from dozens of unique weapons!
  • 100% PSEUDO-SCIENTIFICALLY ACCURATE — Or: How we learned to stop worrying about realism and love the mayhem.
  • HYPE-FILLED OBLITERATION OF YOUR CLOSE AND DISTANT FRIENDS — Make your opponents scream with perfectly-timed attacks and defenses, and hope they’re still your friends the next day.

  • "From the enjoyment of shooting down an incoming missile to leaving a planet just before it detonates into destructive shards, there’s a lot of minutia baked into the game that should keep single-players satisfied, and competitive-minded ones overjoyed."
