Twin-stick poop’em up hitting the Xbox® LIVE Indie Games marketplace on June 15, 2011.

Munich, Germany– June 8, 2010– Wolpertinger Games’ newest release, Poopocalypse, will be available in the Xbox® LIVE Indie Games marketplace from June 15, 2011 on. Control a fat, vengeful pigeon going on a pooping spree around the world in this all new twin-stick poop’em up. Experience the artful flight of an overweight bird and enjoy the power of drowning everything beneath you in massive amounts of white, warm, squishy birdy-poo.

The HD Release Trailer will give you a tiny spritz of the fun that awaits you .“Birds are the new Zombies.” says Andreas Ackermann, programmer at Wolpertinger Games,“So we decided to jump this train with a slightly deviant concept”.

Poopocalypse will feature a unique, comic silhouette graphical style, diverse challenges throughout 17 stages, global online scoreboards, a load of trophies and an original soundtrack by Bastian Kieslinger. There’s a free trial version available in the XBLIG marketplace. The full game costs 80 MSP which is equal to $1. The Poopocalypse is upon us– time to give a sh*t!

Poopocalypse is the second installment in a series of deviant indie game concepts, following Quizocalypse which featured Zombies who compete for brains in this multiplayer trivia game catering to nerds and geeks. Quizocalypse is also available on Xbox LIVE Indie Games. You can get Quizocalypse here: Quizocalypse on XBLIG
