announces that Galactic Command: Echo Squad is gold, with 3000AD's
foray into episodic gaming set to launch exclusively on GameTap in "late
spring." Here's a bit from the release, which seems to have been caught in the
space-time continuum since early February:
ATLANTA - February 7, 2007 -
GameTap, the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network from Turner
Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), today announced the upcoming addition of
Galactic Command – Echo Squad to its GameTap Originals publishing division.
Inspired by the first generation of space combat games, Galactic Command – Echo
Squad is a fast-paced episodic space shooter set in an expansive galaxy. With an
evolving story line that is constantly changing, no two playing sessions are
ever the same.
Working closely with independent game developer 3000AD Inc., GameTap will launch
the first of four scheduled episodes in late spring exclusively to GameTap
subscribers. Each of the four episodes is designed as a campaign with sixteen
lengthy missions and unique conclusions, all of which provide hours of gripping
gameplay. Beginning with Episode 1: Rise of the Insurgents, episodes will be
released on a monthly basis.
