Eidos New Media announces first title exclusively for Microsoft XBLA®
Eidos New Media, part of Eidos
Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of
entertainment software, has teamed up with Strawdog Studios to develop its first
title exclusively for Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA), GEON: emotions will be
available later this Summer.
High octane visuals, with a fast and slick sound track to match, GEON: emotions is a psychedelic, pick-up-and-play game of rapidly changing tactics. Playing as one of eight emotions – Rage, Passion, Fear, Envy, Rapture, Courage, Bliss or Melancholy – players must race to collect pellets and score goals, using power-ups and their ‘emotional’ strengths and weaknesses.
There are three single player modes: Duel, Time Attack and Mini Games, and three multiplayer modes for up to four players: Duel, Team Geon and Last Man Standing and a huge selection of different arenas to get pulses racing.
“GEON: emotions is our first title for Xbox Live Arcade and we’re really proud of it,” said Simon Protheroe, New Media and IT Director at Eidos. “It’s the perfect mix of fun, action and head-to-head competition which works so well on Live Arcade.”
Contenders will need passion to overcome their fear in order to rage towards the bliss of victory. Do you have the courage to look melancholy in the eye, give a rapturous performance and become the envy of all as the Master of Geon?
Geon is a game that will appear on your Xbox Live Arcade this summer. It’s going to be emotional…
