[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

NAMCO BANDAI Games and indiePub Entertainment, Inc. (OTC: IPUB) announced that  Capsized ™ is now available for download on Xbox Live® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and will also be available through the PlayStation®Store for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system later this summer.

Capsized is a fast-paced 2D action platformer set in an immersive 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 mysteri-ous 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. The Xbox Live version of Capsized also includes three exclusive level and online multiplayer, online multiplayer co-op mode.

Capsized includes:

                                                                                       

·         Particle Packed Weapons: Sure, the grappling hook is pretty dern useful but you create awesomely explosive destruction with weapons including the Plas-Mortar, Ion Repeater, Nano-Caster and the Quasar Array (and make friggin’ black holes!).

·         Campaign Mode: Test your mettle against nasty baddies in thirteen levels with lush and varied terrains.

·         Three Arcade Modes: Fight endless waves of enemies in Survival Mode, grab oxygen to survive Last Gasp Challenges or test your survival skills in the weapons-free Armless Mode.

·         Lush Environments:  Enjoy strange and amazing landscapes illustrated in a unique, hand-drawn style.

·         Intense Gameplay: Test your constitution with more than twenty hours of heart-throbbing, thumb-busting action

Storm is already available for download on Xbox Live® Arcade for the Xbox 360®, will also be coming out on the PlayStation®Store later this summer.

Vessel will be available for download on Xbox Live® Arcade for the Xbox 360® later this year.
