Rubicon Development, the studio behind Great Little War Game and Great Big War Game, has revealed that they are working on a new turn-based tactical strategy title by the name of Combat Monsters. Planned for a fall launch, this title lets players spawn monsters on a game board which represents a battlefield, allowing players to cause all kind of chaos against enemy opponents. These powerful creatures are able to use their slicing weapons, heal themselves or others, and cast powerful spells, such as a blazing fireball.
â€œEvery day as I wake up, I ponder over life and the meaning of it all,â€ said Paul Johnson, managing director and co-founder of Rubicon Development, in a press release. â€œHad I been spawning 3D monsters all night and making the enemy cry a single bloody tear after being burned to a crisp, I would instead wake up late in the afternoon — unable to work or do house chores â€“ with a smile on my face.â€
