Armada - RTS Announced by Monaco Dev

Andy Schatz's Blog on Gamasutra has word that an RTS game codenamed Armada (or as it's written in the blog, "[ARMADA]") is the next project from Pocketwatch Games. He speaks of the goal of streamlining real-time strategy to make it more accessible, while retaining the complexity of the genre. "With Monaco, we took an old school genre (Stealth), we simplified the controls, and then we built an incredibly complex game that could be played at high and low skill levels alike. I want to do the same with the RTS genre," Schatz explains. "[ARMADA] is the simplicity of Monaco injected into a classic RTS." Here's the wrap-up, which explains why he doesn't know when this should be expected:

I honestly donít know if [ARMADA] will be another three year project I donít even know if it will be longer than a 6 month project. Sound kind of familiar? Thatís how Monaco started outÖ as a 6 week XBLIG game.

But I do know that there is a game that I want to play that doesn't exist. Monacoís success has given us the leeway to make whatever game we want to make next. I hope that our (amazing) community and new people will join us in following along with development. And if I know anything about the internet, youíll steer us where we go wrong, give us inspiration, and join us in the [ARMADA] community.
