Twin-stick poop’em up coming to Xbox® LIVE Indie Games.

Munich, Germany– December 16, 2010– Wolpertinger Games will release its newest creation, Poopocalypse, to the Xbox® LIVE Indie Games marketplace in January 2011. In this twin-stick poop’em up you will control a fat, vengeful pigeon going on a pooping spree all around the world. Soar through the air, evade enemies and obstacles and bury your targets in a warm, squishy pile of poo.

The release announcement comes with an exclusive sneak-peek at Poopocalypse’s gameplay in this HD Gameplay Teaser Trailer.“The game is currently in Beta”, says Sebastian Bender, head of Wolpertinger Games.“We will just add the last bit of polish! As an upcoming indie team, we are pretty excited to release Poopocalypse as our second game, along with Quizocalypse, to the Xbox soon!”

Poopocalypse will feature a unique, comical silhouette graphical style, diverse challenges in more than 15 stages, online highscore boards, many different trophies and an original soundtrack. Pigeon poop has never been this fun to play with! Best of all, it’s only 80 MSP– that’s ONE DOLLAR!

Unbelievable? No. It’s Poopocalypse– time to give a sh*t!
