Brain Candy has announced Fray, a “sci-fi turn-based, multiplayer, real-time strategy game,” for Windows and Mac.
According to the developer, the strategy title “eliminates the waiting involved with most turn-based games by introducing simultaneous play.”
Here’s a blurb on the game:
Players will enter Fray with a squad of four characters, each with their own specialties. Outfit your squad with a variety of weapons, items and abilities to prepare them for combat. Once inside, Fray is played in turns, where all players choose their actions simultaneously. When actions are chosen, or the timer has run out, the action then plays out in real time cinematic fashion with dynamic camera angles. By virtue of the simultaneous action selection system, the delay and frustration of most turn-based strategy games has been eliminated.
There’s tons of concept art and more on the game through the link.
The game has been in development for over a year and is expected to be released in 2011.
