Siegecraft Commander Catapulting to Nintendo Switch Sept. 19

SYDNEY – Sept. 5, 2018 – Siegecraft Commander, the action-strategy game hybrid from Blowfish Studios, will hurtle toward Nintendo Switch™ on Sept. 19, 2018. Lead an army of troops on a raging battlefield and construct a network of offensive and defensive structures to strengthen their positions and demolish enemy fortifications. To expand their battlements, players catapult structures across the warzone, creating a web of connected towers linking back to the spires that spawned them and, ultimately, the central base. Every tower must connect to the last or to other structures linked to the faction’s first building. If a link in the chain is broken, everything cut off from the nexus will also crumble, leading to potential domino-esque effects where entire sections can fall with one well-placed shot. Building fortifications is only half the battle. Catapults will launch everything from new structures to explosives and cows, all while deploying infantry to attack the opposing […]
