Unstoppable Gorg™ - Release Date, Prices and a New Platform Announced For Orbital Tower Defense Game

HELSINKI, FINLAND - JANUARY 16, 2011 - Get ready to experience a revolution in tower defense later this week when Futuremark® Games Studio releases Unstoppable Gorg™, a revolutionary new tower defense game that challenges you to defend the solar system from fearsome aliens by sending satellites into orbit.

Unstoppable Gorg is a lovingly crafted homage to vintage sci-fi films from the 1950s. Flying saucers, rubbery aliens, dodgy effects, it's got them all. The game's story scenes were shot on film using models, miniatures and live action actors and then edited together with genuine archive footage to create a classic sci-fi experience that is out of this world.
