Arkedo, the studio behind Big Bang Mini and Nervous Brickdown, have come out with a new game called JUMP! for the Xbox Indie Games Channel. It’s a retro style platformer where you have to battle enemy crabs and destroy bombs planted all over the levels. The best part of JUMP!, to me anyway, is the pixilated art style. It’s absolutely fantastic and great to look at. JUMP! available now on the Indie Channel for 240 Points.
It’s interesting that Arkedo has jumped from DS development to the Indie Games channel. They could easily do Xbox Arcade games, but it seems like Arkedo is trying a little experiment with the Indie Channel. A very small team is shooting to make one game a month. First there was JUMP!, which took them 35 days to complete. Their next game is called SWAP! and should be out before the end of the month. Plus they have three more games in the works so we should be seeing a total of five new Arkedo games within the next four months.
Arkedo sees a lot of potential in the Indie Channel and hopefully it pays off for them. Check out the trailer above and download the demo for JUMP!. Give it a go and let us know what you think of it.

It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.Dreamweaver There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.
