Indie game DieselStormers gets new name // Huge content update coming today
Offenburg/Germany, October 15, 2015 | German indie studio Black Forest Games today announces the new name for their action game DieselStormers: It’s now called Rogue Stormers. The change became necessary after fashion label Diesel successfully opposed Black Forest Games’ trademark registration of DieselStormers. Rogue Stormers was chosen because it highlights the main gameplay mechanic and stays close to the old name, maintaining as much brand recognition as possible.
The new name is introduced with the Borrriss!-Update that will go live on Steam today. Both are important milestones on the way to Rogue Stormers’ final release in early 2016, featuring new weapons, upgrades, objects, enemies and artworks. Black Forest also reworked some of the game’s systems, namely the loot system, and tweaked the UI. A complete change-log has been published on Black Forest Games’ blog.
Rogue Stormers is a platform shooter with roguelike elements; it combines action-gameplay, huge procedurally generated maps, rpg-elements and over the top mayhem with gorgeous 3D graphics. In Rogue Stormers, players take control of rebel knights called Dieselstörmers, and fight alone, or with up to 3 friends, against mutated monsters who have overrun the oil rig city of Ravensdale.
Rogue Stormers is currently available on Steam Early Access, Greenman Gaming and in the Humble Store.
