It’s been 75 Years since Roswell sent these Phobies viral, and they are here to stay, and here to play! Are you ready to make Contact on June 28th
June 23rd, 2022 – Join game developer Smoking Gun Interactive in celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Roswell Incident as they prepare to unleash a host of new alien horrors into Phobies. The turn-based strategy game is available to play for free on Steam, Android, and iOS, combining card collecting with PvP action as players command an army of stylised fears, known as Phobies, which take the form of creepy clowns and rampaging robots – and now, extraterrestrials!
The Roswell Incident is the world’s most famous UFO claim, which helped bring people’s fear of extraterrestrials from the fringe to the mainstream as the US Army claimed to just have recovered a weather balloon rather than a ‘flying disc’ as originally stated. But even the most ardent of UFO investigators, conspiracy theorists and Lippy knew this was a cover up all along. According to newly declassified files, a total of 13 alien Phobies will be coming from all over the universe to snatch the bodies of the enemy. Use Greylian to swap places with an opponent or Bluelien to create temporary healing pools for all your Phobies to bathe in. Combine these powerful new Phobies with a set of 8 new abilities, and players will have an armada of new strategies and tactics to explore.
Once players build and upgrade a collection of Phobies to suit their optimal strategy, they’ll face off against opponents from around the world across a host of interactive hex-based combat arenas. Every arena is carefully crafted by the strategy expertise of developer Smoking Gun Interactive – founded by the creative talents behind the first title in the legendary Company of Heroes series.
