Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Wizorb] Arkanoid with an interesting RPG-twist

I just wanted to spread the word on a new Xbox live Indie game called:


This game is made by an indie game developer known as "Tribute".

The game has you playing the role of a wizard that must slay monsters and collect gold to restore a town that was destroyed by monsters. The twist is that when you enter a level you transform into an Arkanoid paddle and launch a magic orb at enemies. Once you clear all the blocks and monsters you proceed to the next stage. Since your character is a wizard you can use spells to increase the power of you ball or take direct control over it briefly. I not sure if you will be able to level up or equip items, but I'm really enjoying the old school Genesis-era graphics and music.

The game should be available now on the Xbox marketplace for about 240 points. It will also be available on PC soon.

Gonna post link to Giant Bomb quick look here soon.

    Rather reminiscent of Pinball quest, only not.

    Meiz, too bad pinball quest didn't stand the test of time. It needs a remake. Marble blast ultra showed us it could be done.

    Anyway. This looks neat! I <3 arkanoid even though it was tough as nails.

    We were the ones who thought that Melissa was real. Why you might ask.
    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.

    Tis an awesome game. Probably worth mentioning that it's by the guy who did Scott Pilgrim vs the World (you can definitely tell by the satisfying chunky hit detection I reckon), and it also has extra animations by Paul Robertson, of Kings of Power 4 Billion fame

    Probably the best indie game out since Protect Me Knight, or Pixel, for my money.

    I'm pretty sure that it's just the artist who is the same and not the developers. Looking forward to this turning up on PC.

    I want to know more PA people on Twitter.
