Oblivion’s Edge on Steam?

Through Steam’s Greenlight system (that’s where the community of Steam players can help pick games that Steam will release and also provide feedback directly to the developer), MMO Ventures presents Oblivion’s Edge.

What is Oblivion’s Edge?

Think back to the days of pumping quarters into games like Asteroids, and Galaxan, and Defender.  You flew ships and fired off as many shots as you could, tried to destroy all the UFOs that you could, while trying to dodge an incomming hail of laser fire.  Oblivion’s Edge is this era’s version of that, only it’s super-charged with acid for blood!

It’s official description from it’s Steam Page:

“Oblivion’s Edge is a twin-stick shooter inspired by our favorite arcade and bullet-hell shooters”

Visually you can certainly see where the imspiration came from.  It’s free-roaming in nature and it appears that you can fly endlessly while shooting and destroying (well, trying to destroy) everything in your path.

The storyline is not overly complex, as in; this game is arcade in nature so you can jump right in and play without needing to read a tome of instructions.

The storyline?  What is it?

The description given on it’s Steam Page:

Our solar system has been invaded by a mysterious and powerful alien army. Any attempt at fighting back has failed.  We lost contact with the fleet, they are assumed to be destroyed. Now the battle has come to Earth. Our resources have dwindled; our defenses are destroyed. Staging an assault is impossible. Our only chance for survival is you, Earth’s last pilot.

In essence, you and you alone (you last starfighter!) can save the galaxy! The odds are stacked against you in Oblivion’s Edge but you do have several weapons and defensive items to help you out.

There are 3 difficulty settings for each game mode and there are 4 different game modes to choose from!

You have: Survival Mode, Defend Mode, Minefield Mode, and Earth Defense Mode (hit their Steam Page for a full description of these game modes).

Check out this video of the gameplay in action:

 

 

 

Oblivion’s Edge is a Single-Player game and is playable on PC, Mac, AND Linux!

Be sure to hit their Official Steam Page, give it a look and help these guys out by giving it a Thumbs Up YES!

Personally, I love the look of it!  It has a very “retro arcade” look but with modern day play!  I’ll grab this one for sure, and I can’t imagine it would cost more than a couple cups of coffee, certainly less than ten bucks, and my pockets know I’ve certainly pumped more than ten bucks worth of quarters into games over the years!
