Check out the Developer Diary on Stormrise, which is coming out next week on 24 March 2009.
We’ve all played or tried out at least one of the few RTS releases on consoles and so far, there seems to be something missing that prevent gamers from giving the nod for the genre. Some people gave up on RTS on consoles completely. Ensemble studios simplified the controls for Halo Wars and it looked like they’ve almost nailed it, but some say it’s been totally dumbed down.
The developers of Stormrise have sort of reverse-engineered the process by "developing some controls and then build a game behind it". Will that work. I’m really interested to see some gameplay videos or test out the game when it’s out to find out firsthand.
