Warp to Kick Off Microsoft’s House Party
Release Date: February 15, 2012
Price: 800 MS Points
Platform: Xbox LIVE Arcade, (PC and PSN March 13, 2012)
Warp was present at CES 2012, nestled right in between NEXUiZ and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. There were a few other titles present, but there was only so much for one little gaming journalist to play in the short period of time.
Similar to previous fresh faces in the Microsoft Xbox LIVE promotions, it seems as though Warp will be bringing that same feel to kick off the event. Move over ilomilo, there is a cuter and deadlier being to take your spot.
Warp sets itself apart in subtle–yet–creative ways. Things as simple as gameplay and ability to choose how exactly you play–puts storyline decisions right in the hands of the player. As your take on the character Zero, it is up to you to guide this orange alien to escape the Commander’s research facility in which he has been cruelly tested in. Be a sneaky-snail and avoid all of the guards in the level or treat them like the bloody scum of the Earth they and take them out viciously. Put your puzzle-solving brain to good use and to shoot to the top of the leaderboard’s and give this little guy some freedom.
“We’re very excited to have Warp kick-off Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Arcade House Party, an event that spotlights the work of independent developers,” said Ken Schachter, Founder, Trapdoor. “Warp delivers an experience that is unique, original and allows gamers to defy the traditional rules of videogames, letting them play the game their way. We are very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish and hope players embrace it as well.”
