de Blob team announces new game

The student developers behind the original concept for De Blob on PC have formed a studio called Ronimo Games based in Utrecht, Holland. The team of seven are now moving forward onto a new project for WiiWare.

Swords & Soldiers is a side-scrolling realtime strategy game (RTS). The power of the gods is at stake, and three factions must battle it out (among them are Vikings, and some kind of Egyptian/Indian hybrid). Release is hoped for during the final quarter of this year.

I agree with Wii Freak. I love RTS games. Hopefully this game turns out with stunning results.

To me it looks similar to castle crashers on the xbox 360. I'm sure it's different, but I haven't tried it yet.
