Z-Software releases trailer of "Solar Struggle" (Xbox360)

Dortmund, 2nd of August 2010. Since two years, there is a lot of gossip in the independent game-scene about "Solar Struggle". It was in 2008, when the game appeared on different important game-conventions and business-events for the first time. "Solar Struggle" was meant to be a very promising title, but after some early prototypes, nothing was heard again about this ambitious shooter. Until today: Now the game developing team Z-Software from Dortmund/Germany has announced, that they purchased all the copyrights on the game and will now release it on Xbox360 - together with the publisher redspotgames from Munich.

The original 2D-spaceshooter-concept has been retained, but the game's graphics and the game-features have been changed a lot. Now with the first official trailer of "Solar Struggle" gamers get insight the gameplay and its challenging space-battles. The trailer will be today on the new published website of the game: www.solarstruggle.com.

"It's a game for hunters and collectors. Within eleven missions, you can achive 36 different awards and gain up to nine different types of spaceships", states Andreas Heldt, CEO of Z-Software. He doesn't want to reveal too much details about the gameplay right now, "but we will regularly release new information about the story, new screenshots and some more videos of the game on www.solarstruggle.com", Andreas Heldt promises. But at this point, there are assured facts, that there will be– apart from the normal story-mode of the game– an alternative skirmish-mode. Whereabouts the player has to defend his spaceships against incoming waves of enemies. If the player succeeds, he gets new spaceships with different weapons as a reward.

"Solar Struggle" is expected to be released in August on the indie-channel of the Xbox360 market-place. The game is fully synchronized in English.

The company Z-Software is an independent developing-studio from Dortmund/Germany. It was founded in 2008. The team specialised on programming for computer games and on the techniques of motion capturing. This kind of game-animation is made by Z-Software in their own studio. So far, the team and its five members mostly supplied various programming-elements for other game-projects. Since 2010, the young business company Z-Software also releases his own big videogames. In January, the team from Dortmund released the "Handball Simulator 2010" for PC. In the German indie-gamescene, Z-Software is also well known for their organisation of the "Spieleentwicklertreff NRW" an important convention for young game developers.
