Red Faction: Armageddon

To promote the latest release of the Red Faction franchise Red Faction: Armageddon, THQ wanted an online first-person blaster that would give players a sense of really playing for something.

Accordingly we developed a rich, atmospheric Flash game utilising Facebook Graph API, granting the opportunity for players to defend their own friends from wave after wave of Martian mutants that only become quicker, stronger, and harder to kill the longer you play.

Inviting friends allowed the player to unlock bigger and better weapons with greater firepower, and the two-tier scoreboard allowed the player to compare their scores with their circle of Facebook friends or globally.
