Turret defense title Infested Planet has been available on Steam in early access for quite some time now, but it's nearing the conclusion of its development. To acknowledge this, the above trailer has been released to show key features and an overwhelming quantity of swarming alien beasts.
It's been a while since I've played a game in the genre, a fact this video reminded me of. I dig the scale, with five men to position against a hundred thousand invaders. I expect it to be a game that I lose repeatedly. Whether or not victory feels like it could be within my grasp is what will compel me to keep at it, though. Anybody get in on that early access action? Because I think this itch needs a scratch.
