IGF finalist headed to Xbox Live Arcade as The Splatters

Israel-based indie developer SpikySnail is getting its game The Splatters published by Microsoft Studios for release on Xbox Live Arcade in 2012. Previously, this title was called Confetti Carnival when it became an Independent Games Festival finalist for technical excellence.

It looked like a ton of fun back then, and it still does today. I wouldn't have expected Microsoft to pick this up, but if the end result is more exposure for The Splatters, sounds good to me. Those attending PAX Prime later this month can get their hands on a playable build at booth #6301.
