EA’s bread-and-butter may be triple-A unfathomable-budget titles, but the publisher’s venturing outside the realm of dudes with guns, race cars, and Gears-of-War-but-with-boy-wizards with three very interesting-looking indie titles.
First up, there’s Warp, which is a top-down stealth-action title from indie dev Trapdoor. It features “a sci-fi world with a distinctive art style, addicting levels, hazardous traps and challenging puzzles,” and is set to launch in summer 2011.
The Fancy Pants Adventures, meanwhile, is a port of popular browser-based sidescroller, but with a new world, story, and modes designed for the fanciest, classiest folks of all: console gamers. It’s coming next spring thanks to a partnership between EA, Borne Games, and Over The Top Games.
Finally, there’s Gatling Gears, which is a twin-stick shooter from Vanguard Games, the product of a recent merger Guerrilla Games and Greed Corp developer W!Games. Twin-sticked and shooty though it may be, Gatling Gears is a Greed Corp sequel at heart, featuring “collapsing land, walker units and warring factions.” It’s also due next spring.
Fancy Pants Adventures is trailered below (thanks, Blerk).
