Storm is an ambient, ethereal experience where you use natural phenomena to guide a simple seed to fertile soil so it can take root and spring to life. Embrace the subtle-ties and strengths of nature to move a broken branch, fill a small pond or make snow fall to solve puzzles and create natural paths. Take your time and explore nature’s nooks or simply enjoy the ambiance as you float, blow and bounce a seed to the perfect place to take root. Relax and enjoy Ad-venture, Challenge or Spirit modes, each set in gorgeous environments and enhanced by soothing, nature-inspired soundscapes.
Capsized is 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. In Capsized, your ship crash lands on a mysteri-ous 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. Capsized combines control elements of first-person shooters with innovative physics-based combat and nods to classic platform games. It has more than a dozen non-linear levels with multiple modes.
In Vessel, living liquid machines called Fluros have overrun the world and it is up to their inventor, M. Arkwright, to stop the chaos. It’s a single-player puzzle game set in a steampunk world with creatures based on a unique liquid-physics engine. Vessel features a full-length soundtrack created by music prodigy Jon Hopkins and uses a custom music en-gine to dynamically remix tracks to reflect gameplay.
Storm, Capsized and Vessel will be available for download on Xbox Live® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Storm and Capsized will also be coming out on the PlayStation®Store for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
