It's become increasingly clear that, for certain developers putting out Xbox Live Indie games, following up with a secondary PC release is the way to go. If the title in question is of high enough quality, of course. Wizorb is one such game, and its PC release has been set for Monday, November 7.

This will be happening by way of digital distributor GamersGate. Though keyboard and gamepad support is included, the developers say mouse control is where it's at; this input method "makes Wizorb rely even more on reflexes which feels great and makes the game a tad easier."

Grand news for those unwilling or unable to grab the original release. While not currently dated, Linux and Mac ports are also being worked on. I could see it doing particularly well on the App Store, but one step at a time.
