Brand looks like a great XBLIG
Not all XBLIG’s are created equal. So when one comes out that looks great it is worth mentioning. Brand by Nine Dots Studio in particular looks awesome. The gameplay is hack and slash platformer action. A big emphasis seems to be on upgrading your sword with powers that fit your gameplay style. More action can be seen on this trailer:
Smooth gameplay and upgrading weapons is enough to get us interested. There is no official release date yet but it should be in the next few months.
