Are you ready for some brawler mayhem? Of course you are! Developer 4bit Games reached out to us earlier today to share the exciting news that their first game; ORBIT, is coming to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program VERY soon.
ORBIT has already started picking up awards, and was honoured in the 2015 Norwegian Game Awards not once, twice, but three times! And it’s not surprising considering the features packed into this indie title; local multiplayer for 2-4 players, 9 game modes including Capture, Kill, Survive and Mayhem, randomly generated maps for a fresh experience every game, design and create your own modes and battles, and a levelling system with spaceship upgrades and paths for total customization.
Check out the trailer below and then additional info from the press release:
Maneuver your ship between planets at breakneck speeds and take gravity into account as you crush your rivals with an epic spaceship arsenal in an awesome twin-stick space brawler. Use teleportation, rockets and several other weapons and special abilities to defeat the enemy, upgrading your spaceship as madness intensifies. Right on!
Offering you 9 groovy game modes and randomly generated scenarios, ORBIT is ready to trap players in a vortex of gravity, betrayal and friendships suddenly torn into tiny pieces. “I nearly lost it on a random dude after losing to him. ORBIT is so much fun” said Marius Strøm Pedersen, CEO of 4Bit Games. “I used to have friends” stated Simen Setrom, lead programmer and world champion ORBIT player.
Duke it out in a big selection of game modes like Capture or the self-explanatory Destroy mode. And if you are up for a challenge, the Survive mode barrages you with epic amounts of asteroids as you try to best your foes. Ready to explore your orbital trajectory? Level up your ship to make the ultimate space destroyer using a wide tech-tree with countless options and weapons.
ORBIT looks like fantastic fun. Excited? We are. Let us know your thoughts below.
