We had the opportunity to ask the team at 4Bit Games some questions. Of course they are making a cool new couch multiplayer game on PC and Xbox One. Let’s jump into the interview.
Party-friendly developer 4bit Games is thrilled to announce that their first game ORBIT is coming to Steam and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program later this quarter. Thrice awarded in the Norwegian Game Awards 2015, ORBIT takes the fiercest local multiplayer experience to a new, frantically fun level. Maneuver your ship between planets at breakneck speeds and take gravity into account as you crush your rivals with an epic spaceship arsenal in an awesome twin-stick space brawler. Use teleportation, rockets and several other weapons and special abilities to defeat the enemy, upgrading your spaceship as madness intensifies. Right on!
Offering you 9 groovy game modes and randomly generated scenarios, ORBIT is ready to trap players in a vortex of gravity, betrayal and friendships suddenly torn into tiny pieces. “I nearly lost it on a random dude after losing to him. ORBIT is so much fun” said Marius Strøm Pedersen, CEO of 4Bit Games. “I used to have friends” stated Simen Setrom, lead programmer and world champion ORBIT player.
Duke it out in a big selection of game modes like Capture or the self-explanatory Destroy mode. And if you are up for a challenge, the Survive mode barrages you with epic amounts of asteroids as you try to best your foes. Ready to explore your orbital trajectory? Level up your ship to make the ultimate space destroyer using a wide tech-tree with countless options and weapons.
ORBIT will soon be available for Steam and Xbox One bringing both short and intense play sessions or epic custom battles to both systems.
