It's been a long time since the world was graced with the simplistic beauty that is Geometry Wars. Though Bizarre Creations sadly no longer exists, Activision is passing the series baton over to Lucid Games, many of whom are Bizarre alumni, themselves. Shacknews took a moment to catch up Lucid's Nick Davies during Gamescom to talk about the next game in the series, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions.

"The goals really were to produce a true sequel to Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved," Davies told Shacknews. "We didn't just want to make a few more levels and a few extra game modes. We wanted to do something that was really worthy of being an entry to the Geometry Wars franchise. We really thought about what would make up different ideas that the guys had over the last six or seven years about how they'd like to improve and take Geometry Wars forward."

Davies goes on to talk about the new 3D playing fields and textures, as well as the expanded single-player experience, online competitive multiplayer, and local four-player multiplayer. To learn more about Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, check out the video below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Is the footage in that video of Geometry Wars 3? If not, the video's title seems inaccurate.

      I'm wary of them going 3d. part of the allure of GeoWars was the simplicity of gameplay, you add another dimension and all hell breaks loose. we'll see though I guess

        I saw a video of it though and the video stuff does look really neat and well done, but who knows.
