EGM visits Ninjatown


Shawnimals creator and Electronic Gaming Monthly alum Shawn Smith finally broke his silence on Ninjatown, sitting with EGM to talk about the game and share a couple screenshots. We knew to expect plenty of characters from the Shawnimals plush toy line when the Ninjatown trailer debuted, but, until now, we've been left in the dark on how the "action-strategy" title would play.

According to Shawn, battles will be split into two phases, building and combat, the first of which allows you to drop in structures and create/upgrade the different ninjas at your disposal. While combat hasn't been finalized, it's expected to include a "puzzle element." We're not sure how that would work with the two screens shown so far, but it certainly sounds interesting!

When I saw the article in EGM, all I could say was "squeeeeee!" As a lover of ninjas, games, Shawnimals and all things cute, you can bet I will want this one as soon as it comes out (right after my birthday, conveniently enough). I know what I'm spending my check from Grandma on this year. :-)
