Get an inside glimpse at Xbox LIVE® Indie Games development, and the release of“Solar Struggle Survival.”

With launch day fast approaching, publisher redspotgames, and Z-Software GmbH are announcing their spin-off to the “Solar Struggle” franchise,“Solar Struggle Survival”

“Solar Struggle” of course was one of the most unique and graphically appealing titles available in the Xbox LIVE® Indie Games library. Their new title however, offers even more action, advanced controls, stunning graphics, and an oppressive dark setting. The game takes a more arcade approach, but also adds something new to the genre with the ability to level your ship through experience points.

Being familiar with the first title is by no means necessary. In fact, the exact opposite is true.“Solar Struggle Survival” as a spin-off, will generate interest for the previous title with a well thought-out story mode featuring cutscenes that explain the whole“Solar Struggle” universe. 

“Solar Struggle Survival” will be offered for only 80 Microsoft Points (less than 0.69 Euro /£0.69 / US$1.00) on Xbox LIVE® Indie Games. The released is scheduled to happen within the next few weeks, and will be led with trailers, and screenshots as the days count down. It is currently in its final testing period.

Additionally, the game will be discussed in more detail in the coming weeks to motivate hobby coders who might have some insights into this project made possible with the free Microsoft development kit XNA (now called 'App Hub'). These freely available tools enable homebrew and professional developers alike to develop games for both Xbox LIVE® Indie Games and Windows Phone 7.
