At the time, none really caught the eye: such is the way of CG teasers. There was Lococycle, from 'Splosion Man developer Twisted Pixel, and Matter, a Kinect game from Hollywood director Gore Verbinski. The third, Ascend: New Gods, from Toy Soldiers developer Signal Studios, promised persistent asynchronous multiplayer across Xbox 360 and Windows Phone.

But there's more to it than that: it's Xbox 360's first truly free-to-play game.

Both toy soldiers games were awesome and I am pretty excited to see what the devolopers do with this game.

Sounds kinda cool.

The footage at E3 was pretty unimpressive but the RPG mechanics might make the game interesting.
