'Cute Things Dying Violently' in Xbox 360 promo
Tuesday 19 July 2011
Eight quality games have been chosen for the Xbox 360's Indie Games Summer Uprising, including
Cute Things Dying Violently,
Train Frontier Express and
Battle High: San Bruno among the diverse selection.
The Xbox 360's online Indie Games channel sells the bulk of its user-made games for 80 Points each ($1/€0.90/69p), and the promo is designed to highlight some of its upcoming goodies.
Cute Things presents 60 levels' worth of devious deathtraps to escape, while the ambitious Train Frontier Express allows players to create not only railroads but the hills and lakes around them.
Also in the mix are 2D fighter Battle High: San Bruno, fantasy RPG Doom & Destiny, multiplayer shooter Take Arms, and action game TEC 3001.
Milkstone Studios, already known by Xbox Indie Games fans for Infinity Danger, will have the hack'n'slash of Raventhorne on offer.
Finally, the side-on SpeedRunner cites Mario Kart and Micro Machines as inspirations, but Canabalt, N+ and LittleBigPlanet 2's grappling hook escapades also spring to mind.
The Indie Games Summer Uprising will run from August 22 to September 2.
