Courtesy of the Xbox Live Marketplace, details of a new XBLA game by Zootfly and 505 Games have appeared. Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death brings us a new hero in the form of tough man, Marlow Briggs. Briggs is one never to run away from a fight and he is on a quest to defeat an unknown evil. The twist is that he is bound to a mysterious Mayan Death mask that apparently has had no one to make conversation with for the past 2000 years. I suppose with that in mind, it's no wonder that the mask has bound itself to him. Some more details regarding this and other aspects of the game have been unveiled to us.
A new breed of WARRIOR returns, committed to destroying the enemies of FREEDOM! No-nonsense hero Marlow never shied away from danger or trouble. But now he faces his ULTIMATE challenge. Blasting into Central America, he has an industrial evil to defeat whilst bound to an ancient Mayan Death Mask who’s had no-one to talk to for 2000 years. With cliffhanger over the top action and cinematic gameplay, Marlow Briggs takes inspiration from the best of blockbuster films, comic book heroes, and action games with its focus on relentless high-octane combat, exotic and danger filled environments and epic set pieces.Alongside these details, six screenshots from the game have been displayed on the game's official page. From these we can see what players' can expect from the combat, and what kinds of obstacles Briggs will face as he carries out his quest to foil the plans of this evil threat.
Marlow Briggs has no concrete release date as of yet, but when more information about the game comes up we will be sure to let you know!
