War of the Worlds Screenshots and Trailer

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
The upcoming side-scrolling arcade game, War of the Worlds, aims to tell a new story that runs parallel to H.G. Wells' classic alien invasion tale. The development team at Other Ocean Studios is hoping to channel some of Wells' creativity that he left in his artful writing, and translate it into stunning visuals. If these new screens are any indication, they hit their target.

What is most attractive about these screenshots may not be just their stylish aesthetics, but rather how varied the game worlds seem to be. Each of the five new screens offers different locations, color palettes, and mood.

Along with the screenshots is a new trailer from Other Ocean. You can check out the previously-released developer diary right here if you missed it back in August.



War of the Worlds has no price or firm release date yet, but it is expected to invade the dashboard sometime before year's end.
