event Invasion: Neo Earth news release Steam

Out now on Steam early access – Invasion: Neo Earth!

Good news for fans of retro turn-based strategic action –
Invasion: Neo Earth is releasing in Early Access on Steam today!

All about battling an alien invasion to a soundtrack of Synthwave and Metal, this game takes it’s lead from classics such as Advance Wars and X-com.
Choose your units, customize their weaponry and wage war on insidious aliens, with multiple missions choices at most stages of the campaign.

Why Early Access?
This being the first full-length project of a new development venture, I believe it’s doubly important to hear everyone’s feedback in this final stage of crafting the game into the best it can be, whilst being honest about what is on offer to players.

Finding out what works and what doesn’t is essential to this, so I invite everyone to invest in the early access or even just try the demo and leave your suggestions in steam discussions or via twitter at @iao_dev

Happy alien hunting!
