Introducing "Rive" (XBLIG-game)

The last two months I have been making a vertical shoot 'em up for the indie games section on xbox live.  It will have 4 player local support (no networking at all) and will feature many levels, right now it looks like it's going to be around 14 different levels. Players can jump in whenever they want in the game. There is also a levelsystem that will be reset every time you die, and every time you level up your weapons will get upgraded. Here's an early pic from the game as it looks right now. But it will change a lot until it's being released, which by the way will be sometime before the end of the year.

Good luck, man. If you could really simulate that Galaga feel, I'd buy it.

This isn't the racial epitaph I was expecting.

thanks, it's a section in the game marketplace. But your country may not support it, where are you from?

I really don't understand what that even means...

Very nice screenshot.  I'm looking forward to trying out Rive.   
Now that the average XBL user can rate Indie games, I think your game will be able to float to the top and really get noticed (if it's good, that is). 
Good luck with the rest of the coding!

@ptc: Thank you very much, I don't think it will be in the top rated games but one can always hope :D
