The recently debuted trailer for Laika Believes, a metroidvania style 2D platformer from Minicore Studios, finally gives us a sniff at some actual gameplay. The game revolves around Laika named after the first dog to orbit the earth, however in this alternative reality Laika makes it back home as a half robot-half dog with advanced intelligence to find the Soviets standing supreme as rulers of the globe, having reduced America and Great Britain to little more than smoking heaps of ash. Whilst the game has still not been confirmed for XBLA, the plan is to release Laika Believes in three parts. Expect the first episode, titled The Sun at Night, sometime in 2013.
