Psychedelic Live Arcade title Space Giraffe has cleared certification and will be released any day now.

Game creator Jeff Minter spilled the beans on his blog, where he said an allocated Wednesday release was all he was waiting for now.

Until then, Space Giraffe will be tested by various volunteers from around the industry. The most recent was Microsoft Game Studio release manager James Cope, who was responsible for getting Crackdown out on shelves.

"Space Giraffe is different again, it purposefully overwhelms you. It is a new type of game and it will scare people," said Cope.

"Learning to see, listen and feel the game a player is rewarded with a very beautiful and special experience that we haven't experienced in videogames for a long time; the whole of Space Giraffe is more than the sum of its parts."

Space Giraffe is a beautifully bizarre arcade shooter in a similar vein to Tempest 2000. However, Minter and the Llamasoft team remain adamant it is significantly more than an update, and one we'll be able to enjoy for 400 points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.80) just as soon as Microsoft says so.

Unfortunately Microsoft was unavailable for comment at the time of writing.

2/10 review from UK OXM... might not be justified...

http://www.xbox360wire.co.uk/2007/08/20/xbox-360-l...

“OK, I found him on the Partnernet leaderboards. Come to think of it I remember having seen his entries before because they were a bit unusual.

He’s on as “OXM Dan” and he has NO achievements at all for Space Giraffe. It’s really pretty hard to play SG for any length of time and get no achievements whatsoever; there are a few that are given out fairly easily by way of encouragement. Genius-boy here has managed to get none at all.


More at the link. We'll have to see when we DL it from Marketplace and give a go in trial.

Ouch.. I'll demo it first, but I'm expecting big things.. big things in a small package, granted. This is a classic arcade game. It's basically Tempest revisited, I can see how it might not click with some people.
