Ubisoft Announce Online Multiplayer FPS Atomega

Developed by Reflections — the studio behind Grow Home, along with its follow-up Grow Up — Atomega is set at very end of time itself where advanced life-forms, dubbed Exoforms, fight for dominance by acquiring mass in order to evolve from a solitary atom to an Omega-level omnipresence. This is done either by peacefully collecting it or of course snatching it from opponents, with each stage of your Exoform’s life-cycle possessing its own unique strengths and weaknesses.

In the game, up to eight players compete in first-person, 10-minute rounds whereby acquiring mass grants you points. The team with the most points at the end of the round wins. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all this is that the game will be available in a little over a week’s time when it launches for PC (via Steam) on September 19. Check out the game’s official announcement trailer below.

    Katamari, or Munchables… or Cubivore (can I get more obscure?) meets FPS? Interesting.

    Also interesting: Ubi Soft announces this so closely to Morphie’s Law, ANOTHER FPS about the very specific concept of gaining mass, got a release announcement trailer literally within the last 10 days.

    I find that to be incredibly odd. Both teams were clearly working on their games at the same time, so its likely some parallel thinking. A little bit “Armageddon vs. Deep Impact”. But its just such a weird niche! Oh well; they’re executing the concept differently enough and certainly have a different style – looks good. I like this Ubi Soft team.
