I think this might have the coolest and best use of environmental destruction that I've seen in a game since Red Faction: Guerrilla.

Trailer

Gameplay clips:
Intense action
Strategic building destruction
Skyscraper dominoes
Creating a maze of death
Massive destruction
Dynamic forest fire
Co-op gameplay

A unique fusion of a top down shooter and tower defense strategy. You are the X-Morph - an alien species that invades Earth to harvest its resources and terraform the surface. Strategize in the build mode by carefully selecting various types of alien towers or throw yourself right into heat of the battle.

Build mazes for incoming enemies in an environment that provides exceptional planning freedom. Tear down buildings and collapse bridges to support your defense or to simply indulge in a spectacle of unprecedented destruction. Possess a range of unique alien weapons and use defense strategies like you've never seen before in this genre.

As the X-Morph fighter you can engage enemy units directly with a diverse arsenal of weapons. There are four distinct forms which specialize in dealing with different kinds of threats. Each form has a basic attack and a special charged attack mode. The Plasma Fighter is the most universal one - good at destroying both air and ground units. The Dark Matter Bomber is great at decimating groups of ground units. It can slow down time and release a dark matter bomb that can cut down buildings. The Shredder fighter is perfect for annihilating large numbers of human air units. Finally the Laser Destroyer is best for smelting large single units.

Holy shit.

Looks wonderful. I'd pay big bucks to have a super-hero game like this. Like a Battle of New York.

Whoa. That game looks great. Might have to put it on my radar. I hope the controls are tight.

Looks really pretty (could just use a small effect on glass when buildings topple, even if it just replaced the smooth, glossy texture with a layer of cracks I think it'd be more convincing,) and I really dig the concept for a full-action TD game.

Exor Studio makes some high-octane throwback stuff (Zombie Driver, something called D.I.P.R.I.P.) and I like that this is both a traditional and new gameplay project. Bring it on.

It's from the devs of Zombie Driver, this looks like quite the step forward

Yes please.

Played Project Root awhile back and seen a game called Blue Rider lately that have a similar looking open, 360 shmup thing going on, but this looks way more shmuppy and visually ambitious than those. No tower defense component either, ofc. Interesting idea.

this reminds me of the Anomaly series in a way.

I haven't played a good tower defense game in awhile so I may get on this sooner rather than later.

The destruction is powered by NVIDIA PhysX, by the way.

Hi Everyone :) My name is Paweł Lekki and I'm a producer/designer on X-Morph Defense. I just found this thread and wanted to say "hello" to NeoGaf. Great to hear that you like what we've shown so far! You can also check out this 3 minute 4K gameplay video that was released by NVIDIA some time ago. If you have any questions about the game I'd be happy to answer them :)
