Kalypso Media has announced today that they will bring Enigma Software Productions new IP entitled, Alien Spidy, to the Xbox LIVE Arcade later this year. Alien Spidy is a challenging platform adventure game set in a visually stunning 2D/3D environment with gameplay mechanics based on controlled physics.
Spidy is a small alien spider on a great adventure, as an explorer, searching and cataloguing new forms of life on the boundaries of our Galaxy. Spidy also has a great friend, Virgi, who is also an explorer. She is on a mission on Earth, and Spidy collaborates with her remotely on a daily basis, but suddenly, one day communications are cut off, and Spidy very concerned and without a second thought, flies through space in his UFO directly to the Earth in search of Virgi.
The story will focus primarily on the adventures of Spidy in three dangerous regions of Earth, whilst he tries to rescue his friend Virgi. The game has a simple, yet fresh and attractive storyline, encouraging positive values, which together will give atmosphere and meaning to the game.
Alien Spidy is currently scheduled for release Summer 2012.
