Recently, Trainyard [$1.99] developer Matt Rix and Finger Tied [$2.99 (HD)] developer Owen Goss teamed up to create a Canadian powerhouse of game development which they have dubbed Milkbag Games (milk in bags is a Canadian thing, I'm told).

Matt is here at GDC showing off the first fruits of this joint venture, an upcoming game called Snow Siege. It's an interesting mix of genres, including tower defense, card collecting, and even a bit of Tetris thrown in for good measure. It sounds strange, but it totally works. Check out this hands-on video where Matt walks us through some of the basics of Snow Siege.

As you heard in the video, no hard release window for Snow Siege has been decided just yet. It's looking great so far though, and while I was skeptical about such a strange mishmash of genres, it actually seems to have come together brilliantly in Snow Siege. We'll have more on the game as its development continues.

    This looks pretty awesome. I think the 2D interface will make it a lot funner to play than Block Fortress, whose controls often feel like a battle in futility.

    Watchlisted!

      Ha, funny choice of words. This most definitely uses Matt Rix's 2D framework he built for Unity called "Futile"

    Matt Rix? Train Yard? Instabuy!

      For sure. This looks like a great game! I'll need something to remind me of snow when summer gets here.

    What?! You guys don't have milk in a bag in the states?! I think it's more common in Québec where I grew up, and in some European countries as well. Funny how you take things or granted, like Ketchup and Salt & Vinegar chips, good luck finding those in the US.

      We have lots of Ketchup and Salt & Vinegar chips in all the states I've lived in (TX, OK, AR)

      Not sure about the coasts but S&V chips are hugely popular in the Midwest.

      I love salt and vinegar as much as the next guy, but Humpty Dumpty's "All Dressed" chips make life worth living.

    Yeah I'm buying this day one, a new twist on tower defense and its looks awesome!
