Orbitron: Revolution is worth a look, Defender fans

Last week marked the launch of Orbitron: Revolution, an Xbox Live Indie Game developed by ex-Capcom Vancouver and Electronic Arts employees. To quickly sum it up, the game is a scrolling shooter in the same vein as Defender, with a style inspired by the likes of futuristic racing series Wipeout.

As many of you may well know from first-hand experience, it can be rough out there on the Xbox Live Indie service. There's a limited number of three-dollar games I feel are worthy of sincere recommendation, so a shout out to Orbitron feels decidedly worth giving.

It's unclear if the platform will ever be truly viable -- I suspect it largely won't, outside of small teams with very high outputs -- but supporting studios like Firebase Industries certainly won't hurt the cause.
