Flaregames working on tower defense series Fieldrunners' next wave

Mobile developer flaregames is co-developing its take on tower defense series Fieldrunners after signing a deal with its creator, Subatomic Studios. Flaregames CEO Klass Kersting told PocketGamer the follow-up is in early development, but he added the team will "stay true to the brand and help create a fun game that both hardcore fans of the two original games, as well as new players, will love."

Kersting said the existing Fieldrunners games still collectively see hundreds of thousands of daily activities from their playerbase. Subatomic's original Fieldrunners effort also won Best Art and Best Mobile Game awards at the IGF Mobile Awards in 2009 and followed lanes to the DS and PSP, so flaregames' adaptation has a bit of a reputation to live up to.
