Rock of Ages and its sequel are both relatively simple games, yet strangely enticing with their concept. The whole idea is to destroy the enemy's defenses with your giant and all-powerful god-rock, all the while placing a variety of obstacles and troops to prevent the opponent from doing the same to you. Combine that with an art style that seems to be taken straight from Monty Python's Flying Circus and you've got yourself the most "historically accurate" tower defense and boulder-racing series ever created.

Since all I've done is probably make you even more confused, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It features a decent amount of gameplay, so it should give you a pretty damn good idea of just what kind of madness Rock of Ages 2 is up to. Have a look:

Unlike the original, Rock of Ages 2 will not leave multiplayer as a simple side-attraction. Instead, you'll be able to play with a friend in local split-screen or with up to four players online in a massive brawl to the death, all with the ability to customize banners, colors of your units, and so forth. Most importantly for gameplay, however, opposing tracks will now actually intersect each other, which should add an additional layer of strategy and hilarity to the whole proceedings.

If this sort of madness sounds like something you might enjoy, you'll be glad to hear that Rock of Ages 2 will be coming to PC this August 28th. As an additional little bonus, everyone who purchases Rock of Ages 2 within the first 4 weeks of release will be getting a free 'Binding of Isaac' themed pack. So if you thought things couldn't get any weirder, just wait and see what happens when someone starts rolling Isaac's head towards your walls!

For those of you wishing to learn more about Rock of Ages 2 I would recommend going to either Steam or the official website. And finally, here's a couple of... interesting images to send you on your way:
