It's hard to think of a more unimaginative name for a video game than Hell Invaders, but don't hold that against Spicy Horse. It's just the working title for its Next Big Thing, a collectible card game with RTS mechanics. That caught you off guard, didn't it? This certainly isn't the type of game that I thought it would try to tackle coming off the latest Alice, but hey, I'll take it. Just look at those graphics. The spit and polish in the visual arena already puts this leagues ahead of other CCGs.

Hell Invaders is due out this fall across Mac, PC, Linux, and tablets. According to the announcement materials I've received, it'll feature the usual bits and bobs, including trading, a PVP arena, and a single-player campaign.

More details are coming down the line. One of those details will apparently be a final, actual title, which suggests Spicy Horse is still working that out. Let's help! I put forth this banger of a name: Dungeons of Darkness Battle Arena: Origins.

    Hope they survive the fact that the EA partners branch is facing closure.

    I'm gonna win this with:
    Dark Army of Space Zombie Ninjas VS Holy Alliance of Cowboy Pirate Vampires.

    • Bischi777

      You forgot to put a "resurrection super turbo" in your title.

      • Bliquid

        Now that i read it again, i would actually buy a game tirled like this.

  • BipolarByDesign

    You had me at "Alice"... but alas... no "Alice".

    This game looks promising though.

    How about "Cards for Fake Combat" -- another game with violent bloody battling but no-one is hurt, preserving the illusion of 'virtual' violence as fun entertainment without consequences?
    Doesn't look like will be coming to iPhone, so I will pass.
    I generally love CCG's, but have beefs w/some interfaces (and the cost of 'booster packs'). I wish someone would convert old CCG's like ShadowRun TCG or Cyberpunk CCG to iOS!
    (Handheld is a market that's primed for cyberpunk stuff, and how hard could it be to make a 'virtual card play area' and then just load-in the card images? *DON'T MAKE THE GAME HAVE INTELLIGENCE!! Let the players manage rules & so on, like F2F card gaming..? Anyway, that's my contribution to the effort...!)
