Rock Of Ages Rolls Over The Renaissance

Following development of Zeno Clash, Atlus are teaming up once again with Ace Team to publish a game titled Rock of Ages. While we knew about the title prior to E3, we weren’t entirely sure what kind of game it was.


Now we do…sort of. Rock of Ages looks like a tower defense game with a twist. The meat of it involves you attacking enemy armies and castles (either CPU-controlled or by another player) with a giant, rolling boulder. In turn, you also have to defend your own kingdom against enemy attacks using a variety of units and power-ups. Judging from Atlus’ teaser trailer, it appears you would do this by strategically placing your units to slow the boulder down so it can’t break past your castle gate.


Rock of Ages takes you through the Goya, Renaissance, Rococo, and Gothic periods of artistic history. Atlus plan to release Rock of Ages as a digital download. You can look forward to playing it in spring of next year.

    Rococo? Really? That’s cool and I like seeing them pick a lesser known art period. I’m surprised they didn’t go with Baroque instead. That’s what everyone else does.

    Game actually looks really cool… And to think when I clicked on the trailer I was expecting Atlus to have Def Leppard playing in the background…

  • The confusion I got from watching that trailer will probably make me buy the game.

  • Hmm… I think they should have tried a different title. There’s a currently running Broadway show with the same name. I mean the title works but… I got confused at first.
