SEPTEMBER 20, 2011 – SPACEWIRE TRANSMISSION FROM HELSINKI, FINLAND – Futuremark Games Studio is inviting PC gamers and fans of tower defense style games to sign up now for the Unstoppable Gorg closed beta test due to begin in the next couple of weeks. Unstoppable Gorg is a thrilling space defense game inspired by vintage sci-fi films from the 1940s and 50s.

We need enthusiastic players to take part in a proper, old-school beta – one where players‘ suggestions and ideas will actually influence the final game. We are looking for players who will join in, speak up, and help us grow a great community around this exciting new game.“
