Robot Entertainment Announces Orcs Must Die!

Robot Entertainment has just revealed their newest game, Orcs Must Die!, a fantasy action-strategy game in which you have to defend a fortress, utilizing traps and weapons to try to stem the tides of enemies. This game will be coming out this summer for digital distribution only, so that means no boxes to buy, but the PC, XBOX360, and PS3 will have it. If you are like me and need to actually see what the game is all about, and are attending PAX East, you'll get the chance to try it out for yourself. Now of course, if its as good as I think its going to be, you're probably going to have to forcefully remove me from the game, but we'll wait on that plan of action for another week or so. Here's the official Press Release just in case I missed something:

A one-person defense game with lots of crazy action. Definitely looks like something to give a whirl and write home about at PAX!
