Submarine Titans Interview

The folks at have spoken to Raaj Menon, the director of Ellipse Studios about their latest title in development Submarine Titans. The game Submarine Titans is a real-time strategy game set deep in the depths of the ocean. Based in the future after a cataclysm destroyed much of the surface world, humanity retreated into underwater enclaves. Now two rival civilisations have arisen and are seeking to dominate the planet, the aggressive White Sharks and the eco-friendly Black Octopi. However a strange alien race known as the Silicons has been discovered living deep in the seas and appears to have it's own agenda.

In a popular move among RTS developers they have tried to balance tried and tested features, and subtle new ones, "Our key point of difference is in the details. We have streamlined all the features people expect to see in a real-time strategy game and added some innovative new ones that reinforce the play experience without overwhelming the player." I'm sure this is not the last we have herd from this game.
