I'm really happy to announce that our original mixture of strategy and action Anomaly Warzone Earth launched yesterday on PlayStation Network.
As I explained last month, Anomaly is essentially the first ever Tower Offense game. Instead of defending towers, you create troops and send them on missions to destroy extraterrestrial machines.
