Orbitron: Revolution blasts onto Xbox LIVE Marketplace!

Hello SunBurn community!

Talk about an exciting weekend!  The awesome team at Firebase Industries just released Orbitron: Revolution - easily the most impressive looking game to ever hit the XBLIG channel!

Since its announcement Orbitron: Revolution has received a lot of attention, and even landed TWO articles on Kotaku:

Kotaku: The Prettiest Xbox Live Indie game You Ever Did See
Kotaku: This Indie Xbox Shooter is Pretty (and Cheap!)

And has made it onto the XBLIG Top Rated list - just check out the fantastic trailer to see why:

Other SunBurn Games

Orbitron: Revolution joins the ever growing ranks of SunBurn games on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.  Here are a couple fantastic titles to name a few:

AvaGlide - a fantastic game that takes your Avatar hang gliding over beautiful islands and active volcanoes.

Perkunas' Dragon - a new 2D game with an intriguing story line and featuring SunBurn's 2D rendering.

The $1 Zombie Game - a fun Zombie shooter that's stayed in the XBLIG Top 10 Downloaded games for months (congrats!).

Awesome work guys, we're wishing you all the best success with your titles!
