New XBLA Game Capsized Announced

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
There's no shortage of side-scrolling platormers on the XBLA marketplace. Today, a new one has been announced. It's called Capsized and it's hoping you like your arcade games indie-flavored. The development team at indiePUB are aiming for a December release of their game which they describe as
"a fast-paced 2D action platformer set in an immersive alien world teeming with bizarre life forms and strange landscapes presented in a unique hand-drawn art style."

They also went on to detail the story of the game:

In Capsized, your ship crash lands on a mysterious alien planet and you must navigate through perilous environments and fight blood-thirsty creatures to save your crewmates and escape with your lives. Using a grappling hook, jetpack and ship supplies, you fight through hostile landscapes to save fellow shipmates from the planet’s Tribal creatures.
Here is the official announcement trailer for the new platformer:



If that isn't enough, indiePUB also released a set of new screenshots and extraterrestrial character artwork.

indiePUB stated that the game will combine classic genre elements with physics based combat and shooting. The game will feature many different modes including a story-based Campaign mode, local Co-Operative and Death Match modes, Survival mode, Time Trials and....Armless Fighting, whatever that is.

Look for Capsized on the dashboard in December for 800 MSP.
