Just as a point of interest, this is a project I have been working on with a group of friends after hours ( very “after” ) :

Its a top down arcade shooter built for multiplayer with a console feel. In other words make sure you have atleast one X-Box 360 controller. It supports a maximum of 4 players and is also the most fun with 4. It is currently still very much in development but we submitted our beta draft in to Microsoft’s Dream Build Play competition for 2011. Being a PC gamer myself, I’m hoping to port a full PC version in the future.

There have been a few challenges along the way in terms of publishing it, but our main target will be for X-Box Live. I will obviously do my best to post all major updates of the game here as well 🙂
