OnLive Releases Three New Games Including Two Touch Controls Enabled

Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is the third and final game of the Three Weeks of Fallout that OnLive announced. It joins the PlayPack. The other two games are a novelty, because they are the first new game releases for OnLive that come with touch controls enabled, coinciding with OnLive's launch of the OnLive App for mobiles. The first touch enabled game is a PlayPack release, a title named Future Wars. These two releases bring the PlayPack to 128 games and counting. The other touch enabled game is a PlayPass release, it's titled A Kingdom for Keflings.

Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel

Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is the sequel to Fallout 2 and also a RPG classic from the golden age of PC RPGs. This turn-based/real-time tactical role-playing game is published by Interplay and developed by Micro Forte. After Fallout and Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics is the last game joining the PlayPack. Sadly no Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas yet, because those two are published by Bethesda. Let's hope that Interplay also brings more of their games like Earthworm Jim, Freespace, MDK, Sacrifice and Messiah to OnLive.

In Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel you are the wretched refuse. You may be born from dirt, but you will be forged into steel. You will learn to bend; if not you will break. In these dark times, the Brotherhood - your Brotherhood - is all that stands between the rekindled flame of civilization and the howling, radiated wasteland.

Your weapons will become more than your tools, they will become your friends. You will use your skills to inspire the lowly and protect the weak... whether they like it or not. Your squadmates will be more dear to you than your kin and for those that survive there will be honor, respect and the spoils of war.

Future Wars

Future Wars is a turn based strategy game published by Headup Games and developed by Radon Labs. And being a turn based strategy game makes this game well suited for touch controls.

Future Wars is turn based strategy turned 2.0.

Once upon a time strategy games actually were easy to get into and fun to play for everyone. An intuitive and clear set of rules and an appealing story line helped titles such as Advance Wars, Battle Isle or Military Madness to acquire a legendary reputation amongst all gamers. Over the course of the last decade turn based strategy games on PC have turned into complex monsters through the bigger-better-more philosophy, causing strategy titles to become more and more a niche phenomenon for a very hard-core audience. Future Wars - developed by Radon Labs the creators of Drakensang - takes turn based strategy gaming away from the micromanagement overkill, reopening it for a wider audience.

A modern 3D engine, the proven rock-paper-scissors principle surrounded by an enthralling plot and challenging gameplay create an easy to grasp but hard to master strategy game experience, opening the game for newcomers while appealing to the hardcore gamer just the same.

A Kingdom for Keflings

A Kingdom for Keflings is a PlayPass release for OnLive. It normally costs $9.99 in the US, but it's currently on sale for $2.50, that makes measly $1.75 for PlayPack subscribers. In the UK the game normally costs £6.49, the current sale price is £1.62, that makes £1.13 for PlayPack subscribers.

This is a strategy game published by NinjaBee, so the touch controls are also quite fitting.

In A Kingdom for Keflings you play as a giant to help the tiny Keflings build up and beautify their Kingdom. Start out small, unlocking new blueprints, buildings and tasks as you work towards designing and building a Kefling castle. Create your own private world!
