Namco Bandai and indiePub Team Up on Trio of Digital Games
Namco Bandai and indiePub Entertainment today announced they have signed a global agreement for the distribution of Storm, Capsized and Vessel, available in 2013. All three games will be available for download via Xbox Live Arcade. Storm and Capsized will also be available through the PlayStation Store.
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 subtleties 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 Adventure, 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 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 mysterious 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 engine to dynamically remix tracks to reflect gameplay.
