Unbound Saga hits XLA this summer

Press Release:

Vogster Entertainment, an indie innovator in video game design and content, has announced the upcoming release of the satirical Comic Book-themed Brawler, Unbound Saga, storming the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) this summer.

The game features self-aware comic book tough guy Rick Ajax and his saucy vixen partner, Lori Machete, in an epic journey to escape the confines of their 2-dimensional existence. Along the way, they battle a huge variety of madcap bad-guys and diabolical bosses thrown in their path by The Maker, the mysterious giant hand that created the world of Toxopolis for his own entertainment.

Unbound Saga, has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the power and online play capabilities of the Xbox360 and XBLA. Players can take up the fight alone or battle it out in two player co-op, controlling either Rick or Lori, each with their own fighting style and special, upgradable abilities. Players can unlock new moves and skills to fit their own gaming style: build Rick into a powerful, destructive tank who can destroy objects and use the pieces to pummel his enemies into oblivion, or train Lori in her mystical "Shadow Arts" and stealthy martial skills. With over 100 fully destructible environments and 10 ’issues’ of adventure, they have their job cut out for them.

Unbound Saga was created and produced by veteran comic book writer Mike Kennedy (Star Wars, Superman, Alien vs Predator), who also wrote the original comic book published by Dark Horse Comics. Kennedy will be debuting the game at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo ( April 16-18, offering fans a chance to play the full title for themselves.

"Unbound Saga is that perfect marriage of two awesome entertainment mediums: comic books and video games,” said Kennedy. “We made this thing out of our lifelong admiration of both, lovingly poking fun of each industry at the same time. Insiders might get a kick out of the subtle jokes, but we made sure to keep it super-accessible to anyone who picked up a controller. It’s just pure, simple fun!"

Characters look terribly bland. Was hoping for 2D-only which would fit this game much better

It has potential but the movement through the levels looks really stiff and slow. I hate when beatem ups are slow and jerky.
