TOWSON, MD April 5, 2011– IGS Software and Iceberg Interactive, of Haarlem, The Netherlands, have extended their partnership, with the release of three exciting new strategy games for the personal computer into the North American market. These games are Revenge of the Titans , Star Ruler , and Starpoint Gemini.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says:“We are very excited to extend our business with IGS. After previously having done a deal for two simulation games, we now will jointly bring these three space and strategy games to the North-American market. In our view the games ooze quality and are good examples of a genre that will attract a good audience among North-American gamers. So look out for them to appear on shelves in large U.S. retailers after the summer.”

IGS CEO and founder, Paul Lombardi, says,“Since the beginning of our partnership with Iceberg Interactive, we have been highly impressed by the quality of their products, and we are delighted to add these three excellent science fiction strategy games to the growing IGS repertoire of retail titles.

Revenge of the Titans is a game that features a 50-level campaign that takes the player from Earth to the furthest reaches of our solar system.  Players research and mine for critical resources while preparing for the relentless assault of the Titans, who grow ever nearer to their bases. 

This is the ultimate mash-up of real-time strategy and tower defense.

Revenge of the Titans Features:

    <*>50 level campaign mode across Earth, Moon, Mars, Saturn and Titan itself <*>29 buildings and 40 technologies to research <*>Relaxing Endless game mode <*>Hectic Survival game mode with online hi-scores
 

If you want to rule the galaxy, every star system counts. In Star Ruler, players take command of a vast interstellar empire and safeguard their species from total extinction in a unique galaxy (3-D or flat) with as many stars as their PC can handle (even 10.000+)! Prove your species' ingenuity through a deep and intricate combat system where anything (from individual components on ships to the stars themselves) is a target of opportunity.

Compel other empires to submitting to your superior power with diplomacy and wheel-and-deal your way to supremacy. Research new kinds of weapons, engines, shields, and more, all of which retain their unique benefits as the game progresses, with a research web whose contents are shuffled every game at your option.

Exploit interstellar phenomena such as asteroid belts and stars and exploit them for yourself or destroy them to deny your foes. Create and destroy new worlds through advanced technological research. Match your strategy against up to 10 other opponents (online or LAN-linked).

Star Ruler Features:

·         Vast, procedurally generated galaxies

·         Intricate ship design and exciting combat

·         Unique research system

·         Easy to use interface, complex gameplay

·         Engaging AI opponents

·         Extensive modding support

Starpoint Gemini  is a roleplaying, tactical simulator focused on the control and strengths of individual vessels. In Starpoint Gemini , ship captains and their skills make the greatest difference in large-scale battles. The game is set in a robust science-fiction universe where various thriving civilizations exist side by side.  Players will freely traverse the rich and filled vastness of the Gemini star system, fight skirmishes with rogue ships, trade commodities, research anomalies, buy new vessels, upgrade their ships with state-of-the-art technology, increase their experience and rank to learn more powerful maneuvers and ultimately use all that in large scale engagements against other fleets of hostile ships. Gemini is a dangerous place with riches waiting to be claimed by the more daring and capable captain.
