SunAge delayed, but Lighthouse signs up N-American rights

Haarlem, The Netherlands, July 11th, 2006. Publisher Lighthouse Interactive today announced that their much anticipated RTS game for PC "SunAge" has been pushed back to a new release date of February 2007.
Raymond Snippe, Development Manager at Lighthouse said: "Vertex 4 has been hard at work developing this terrific title. The team is dedicated to delivering the best gaming experience possible so we collectively made the decision to add some additional development time", he went on to say: " I think once gamers get their hands on this title next February, they will agree that it was time well spent". Lighthouse has also announced it has secured the North-American rights for SunAge and looks forward to bringing the game to a worldwide audience. Further news and plans regarding SunAge, including plans for a beta test later this year, will follow. About SunAge SunAge is a new breed 'oldschool' 2D RTS with gorgeous graphics. Among its genre-defining features are: - Alternate modes for all units, dual functionality for greater tactical depth. - Connection lines: Exploit weaknesses in the enemies network while strengthening your own connection lines - Command queuing: Command your units to prone, build or attack where you want them and when you want them to do so. - Indirect Intelligent Targeting: order your units to focus on pre-selected targets. SunAge takes place in a futuristic setting across 2 different worlds, ranging from a lush alien planet to an earth reduced to desolate wastelands and industrial cities. In the distant future, earth is dying and mankind retreats into sealed cities. Then a new cult called RaakZun arises, spreading chaos. Our hero battles to protect his Federation and aims to strike at the heart of the Raak Zun's creed. This opens a gateway to an alien planet and frees up the way for lethal Sentinel drones, who will crush any life-forms that get in their way. SunAge will include a singleplayer campaign, skirmish and multiplayer battles.
