Grapple Buggy story trailer

At last it's time to check out the newest game trailer!



The big deal for us, with this trailer, is to reveal the spoken dialog dovetailed with the intriguing science fiction plot. It's ambitious for our tiny studio, but so far it's turning out really well. We're working to create a "big boy" story with room for moral choices by the player, and elegantly present it in a 2D side-scroller.

The player controls the buggy driven by a human and an alien, working together but, because of their natures, at odds with one another. The characters comment on things as they happen, discussing the action and the puzzles, the story itself, all without bogging down the game.

Right now we're still figuring out if the game will be released via Arcade or Indie Games, but it will hopefully show up on the Xbox 360 in some fashion, in 2010.

Javeya's voice will take a little getting used to--it's not quite how I imagined hers to be--but Drozo's is practically awesome in every way imaginable. I also like how you added the turning wheels to the logo, it really gives it character and makes it stand out.

looks great! Good luck breaking into XBLA!

Looks great! This is easily one of the games I'm most looking forward to for any system. My only complaint is that you're making us wait until 2010 :)

Is the music part of the soundrack of the game proper? Is there a place we can grab an MP3 of it?

Nathan Fouts said...

Rich,
The music used here is all original and will be in the final game.

We'll be looking to release some of the music at some point but not until the game is finished.

Feel free to email me at "nathan at mommysbestgames dot com" to talk more about.
