Developed by Dallas-based Controlled Chaos Media, Verticus will feature original characters, story, and voice-over by Lee. The game will put players in the role of Verticus a superhero charged with saving the Earth’s destruction from an evil alien race known as the Obliterators.
As Verticus players are equipped with a high-tech jumpsuit that lets them free fall through space while avoiding deadly obstacles and alien attacks. Along the way players can collect special materials to enhance their suits and weaponry with dozens of upgrades.
“Stan Lee brings an extraordinary level of style and charisma to Verticus, which, combined with the game’s addictive gameplay, make Verticus really special,” said Matt Kozlov, CEO of Moonshark.
