IndiePUB games has recently revealed that 2D action platformer Capsized is heading for XBLA December 2011. Set in an immersive alien world teeming with bizarre life forms and strange landscapes, Capsized is said to be a classic platform game which combines control elements of first-person shooters with innovative physics-based combat. Presented in a unique hand-drawn art style, the story is that your ship has crash landed on a mysterious alien planet. Using a grappling hook, jetpack and ship supplies you must navigate through perilous environments and fight blood-thirsty creatures to save your crewmates and escape with your lives.
The idea of playing as the weather might sound strange to some but in Storm, it’s the only way to solve puzzles. You must grow trees by utilizing the weather and the climates in order to complete each level. Above, you’ll see the trailer for Spring which uses a lot of wind and after the break, be sure to catch the Summer trailer. It looks like Storm is shaping up to be an interesting puzzler, it was slated for Summer 2011 at 800 MSP so make sure to keep an eye on this storm later this year.
