For the last few months I’ve been hinting on and off that we at ProFactor have been working on something we couldn’t talk about. Well, finally, I can reveal what it is — we’ve been creating an Xbox Live Arcade game, and we now have a promotional video:
The game is called [Slam] (a working title), and is a fast, action-packed fusion of [Breakout] and [Tempest 2000][Tempest] with a dose of puzzle game in there too. We've had an absolute blast making it, and we're now looking to see if any publishers will take it up. [Slam]: http://www.slam-game.com/ "Slam: A New Spin On Bat And Ball" [Breakout]: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakout "Breakout - or bat and ball" [Tempest]: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempest_2000 "Tempest 2000 - Minter at his best"
