Galactic AllianceJoe and Filip from Vectorform, a Microsoft Surface strategic partner, were in Redmond recently to show me some of their applications. Galactic Alliance is one I can easily see fitting in at pubs, lobbies or cruise ships. Surface is all about people coming together.

Galactic Alliance is a four player strategy / arcade game that pits you and your fellow players against aliens determined to invade planet Earth. This addictive tower defense-like game draws you in with some easy waves of invaders at first, and then ramps it up. Soon all four players are working together to produce enough defensive weapons to keep the increasingly sturdy enemy fleet at bay. On the technical side, this game uses finger orientation supplied by the Surface platform to create a smooth co-operative or competitive gaming experience that you won’t find anywhere else.

Vectorform is now making this game available for sale. If you have a Surface unit in your venue and you’re looking for an entertaining title, contact Vectorform and get Galactic Alliance.
