RockYouÂ® today launched its newest game for Facebook, Galactic Alliesâ„¢. Developed by 3 Blokesâ„¢, a RockYou Studio, Galactic Allies is a game of space combat and discovery. In this story-driven game, players can explore the far reaches of the universe, collect and trade resources, build a fleet of ships and battle friends. The veteran team at Australia-based 3 Blokes brings a new depth of experience to social gaming with 3D rendered art and player-versus-player combat. Galactic Allies offers episodic story content and introduces players on Facebook to a more casual version of the real-time strategy game (RTS). Alien planets provide a compelling setting for missions and asynchronous PvP combat gives players the flexibility to battle others without being online at the same time. Players can control individual units and maneuver their ships to create a unique combat experience. Ship and weapon upgrades can be earned amongst a variety of episodes and missions involving a varied cast of rich science-fiction characters. "Galactic Allies alters expectations for what a Facebook game can be,â€ said George Fidler, VP and GM at 3 Blokes. â€œIt's a deep and compelling strategy game, but with the accessibility of a browser game.â€ â€œGalactic Allies is the first game to be launched from our 3 Blokes studio since we acquired them in July,â€ said Jonathan Knight, SVP of Games at RockYou, â€œand it brings a new style and quality of play to the Facebook platform. We couldnâ€™t be happier with the passion and creativity in the studio, and the result is something very special.â€ To play Galactic Allies, visit Galactic Allies on Facebook | Facebook.
