Santiago, Chile, March 5, 2009 - ACE Team, an independent video game developer based in Santiago, Chile, today announced that it will include a new Survival Game Mode with a friends ranking system in its upcoming release of Zeno Clash. Zeno Clash is a PC-based action/fighting game set in a punk fantasy world. ACE Team will distribute Zeno Clash via Steam and Direct2Drive this Spring for a value price of $20.00 USD. The developer is also currently working to secure a retail publisher. In addition, ACE Team has also launched a new blog for Zeno Clash where it will introduce new information about the game each week leading up to the game's launch. The first blog installment reveals never-before-seen information about the game's environments. To read the latest installment visit:
Zeno Clash's new Survival Game Mode features Unlockable Tower Challenges, a new Ranking System and Ascending Tower Levels. The Survival Mode offers players the enjoyment of the gameplay of Zeno Clash without having to replay through the single player campaign. In survival mode, players will unlock several 'Tower Challenges' as they progress through the game. Perhaps the most exciting feature of Survival Mode is that it will also include a ranking system that will compare the player's performance against their friends. The ranking system gives a new dimension to the game mode because players are not only trying to survive through the challenges, but they are also competing against their friends.
"We took into consideration the feedback we were getting from the community and we really felt it was important to offer a game component that focused solely on the fun of the combat system that also had a competitive component," said Andres Bordeu, Co-Founder of ACE Team. "We believe we really accomplished our goal with the new Survival Game Mode with friends ranking system. As we have progressed in the development of the new mode we have found it a blast to play and we're eager to see how the stats turn out once players are competing with each other at release."
As Zeno Clash continues its development and gears up for its spring launch it has already been nominated and won some impressive industry awards. Earlier this year Zeno Clash was nominated as a finalist in the 2009 Independent Games Festival (IGF) Awards for Excellence in Visual Art, and now the game has won the "best upcoming indie" award from ModDB's 7th Annual Mod of the Year Awards - the premiere event celebrating the best creations within the modding and indie gaming scene.
