Radiangames Announces Radiangames JoyJoy

URBANA, IL - MARCH 4, 2010 - Radiangames is proud to announce the first in a series of focused downloadable games, Radiangames JoyJoy, available exclusively through Xbox Live Indie Games on the Xbox 360.

"Xbox Live Indie Games allow small developers to focus on what matters most: The games. With the ease-of-use and power of XNA Studio as a development environment, along with a streamlined distribution to millions of gamers, I can spend the vast majority of my time doing what I love: making awesome games," said Luke Schneider of Radiangames. "Microsoft has given developers an unprecendented opportunity with XBLIG that has thus far been underutilized, and I intend to make the most of that opportunity and show the true potential of focused, professional developers and an open console platform."

Radiangames JoyJoy is an intense twin-stick shooter with a beautiful art style, upbeat soundtrack, and immensely satisfying and customizable gameplay. "Radiangames JoyJoy demonstrates what the Radiangames series is all about: Revitalizing stagnant arcade-action sub-genres with a fluid and satisfying combination of gameplay and style," said Schneider.

Radiangames JoyJoy will be available for download exclusively on Xbox Live Indie Games in the spring of 2010. The debut trailer is viewable here:

Additional games in the Radiangames series will be released every month or so afterward.
