Reverb Publishing and Exis Interactive Strike Deal to Release Majestic-12, Coming Soon to Digital Download Platforms
Futuristic 3D Action Sidescroller to Debut at PAX East with Reverb at Booth 808
Twain Harte, CA – March 29, 2012 – Intergalactic turmoil has taken root as the next addition to Reverb Publishing’s 2012 release slate. Reverb Publishing today announced plans to release Exis Interactive’s Majestic-12, a 3D action sidescroller for digital download platforms. Majestic-12 will make its official debut when gamers get their hands on the stylized, futuristic human vs. aliens co-op action at PAX East 2012 (April 6-8) at the Reverb Publishing booth (808).
Aliens, once in alliance with mankind, have uncovered man’s plot to turn against them. An all-out firefight ensues and your fellow Majestic-12 councilmen are taken captive. As one of the few surviving Majestic-12 members, it is your job to put an end to the evil alien revenge! Featuring intense co-op action with a decidedly retro run-and-gun feel, Majestic-12 sets players in a bullet hell environment amongst core-casual gameplay that’s easy to pick up hard to master.
“Majestic-12 is an awesome throwback in the vein of old-school shooters like Contra, and we’re big fans of Exis’ work. They are a seasoned studio that’s worked on some amazing AAA properties such as F.E.A.R. 3 and XCOM,” said Ted Lange, executive producer of Reverb Publishing. “We can’t wait for gamers to get their hands on Majestic-12 at PAX East and to show the world what else Exis has in store in the future.”
Majestic-12 joins Reverb’s growing roster of titles, which includes the recently released Dungeon Defenders as well as the upcoming Sanctum 2, Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, JAM Live Music Arcade, Black Knight Sword and much more.
