New SunAge art and features revealed

Lighthouse Interactive and developer Vertex4 today released new artwork from their upcoming old skool RTS "SunAge". The update includes 12 new screenshots, three pieces of artwork and two wallpapers to enhance your windows desktop.

Roman Pfneudl, CEO of Vertex 4: "The development of SunAge is going as planned and the cooperation with Lighthouse is going very smoothly. We are having great fun testing the latest builds and enhancing the overall features. This month we would like to reveal one of these outstanding SunAge features. We call it "Indirect Intelligent Targeting" (IIT) which means: each squad can select its preferable type of target. Like e.g. tell all snipers to preferably take out all Golgotha's (huge organic creatures that are indeed vulnerable to sniper bullets). Pfneudl continues: "Combining this feature with the more familiar "force fire" option, players will have superior control over their units and the battlefield".
