Independent game developer Trapdoor and EA Partners, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. today announced that the sci-fi stealth-action puzzler, Warp™, is now available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. Warp was praised by IGN.com as being, “fun and as dark as you want it to be,” and is the first title to kick off Microsoft’s third-annual Xbox LIVE Arcade ‘House Party’ for Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system, a line-up of this season’s best downloadable games coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade.
Warp puts players in control of Zero, a loveable – yet lethal – little orange alien with a big score to settle. After being captured and taken prisoner in an underwater facility, Zero is subject to torturous research experiments by cruel scientists. But Zero’s powerful and deadly abilities help him break loose and gamers must guide him through the laboratory to safety.
Warp has been praised for its dynamic gameplay, giving players the choice to take bloody revenge on every human they encounter or hide and plan their way through each level for a no-kills, stealth game. Bending the traditional rules of videogames, Warp features clever and intuitive puzzle-based gameplay where players decide how to traverse obstacles and combine abilities to master challenge rooms and top online leaderboards.
Warp will be available on PlayStation®Network in North America and PC on March 13, 2012.
