Intrinsic Games Announces‘Amoebattle’ for DSiWare

Los Angeles, CA - June 1, 2011 - Intrinsic Games today announced Amoebattle, a brand new IP from the indie developers behind Divergent Shift that raises the bar for DSiWare titles. Lead an army of witless but loveable single-celled organisms against a mysterious infection in this revolutionary take on the real time strategy genre.

Built from the ground up for the Nintendo DSi, Amoebattle takes full advantage of the touch screen and dual screen interfaces to deliver an intuitive and engaging title that players of all skill levels, from newcomers to genre veterans, can enjoy. Explore the beautiful and alien landscape of the microscopic world as you feed and grow your amoebas, discover new species, and battle hostile microbes..

Command 9 different types of amoebas, each with their own distinct strengths and weaknesses. Create a swarm of Locust amoebas by utilizing their instant replication trait, or hunt down other microorganisms with the paralytic toxin of the Viper amoeba. Use the terrain to your advantage by placing herbivorous Queen amoebas next to empowering algae patches or hiding your carnivorous Sharks in murky water to prepare for an ambush. Turn the tide of battle by deploying technological probes such as the freezing Cryo Probe or the mind controlling Purify Probe.

“This is easily the most ambitious project we have ever undertaken. We wanted to craft an experience unlike any other,” said Hersh Choksi, President of Intrinsic Games,“This is the definitive handheld title that RTS fans have wanted since the Nintendo DS touchscreen was first introduced.”

Look forward to updates, new game information, interviews, screenshots, videos, and more every Wednesday on the Amoebattle website at www.Amoebattle.com. Amoebattle is planned for a 2011 release on DSiWare.
