Get your Xboxes ready, Breakout fans: Wizorb hits XBLIG on Thursday

What's Wizorb, you ask? Why, it's the Breakout-clone-slash-RPG that Justin Cyr, Jonathan Lavigne--of Ninja Senki and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game fame--and Jean-Fran├žois Major have been working on for the past six months.

For those of you who haven't seen it already, here's the game's "debut trailer," which Lavigne shared with the world (via his blog, pixeltao.ca) a few months ago:



As the headline above suggests, the Xbox Live Indie Games version of Wizorb will be released this Thursday via Tribute Games. (A PC version is in the works, too, although its release date has yet to be announced.)

Here's hoping I can either secure a review copy of the game shortly after it's released or scrounge up enough dough to pay for it. Otherwise, it'll probably have to wait until my birthday (which is two months away).

Two looooong months...

I'll await the PC version. Maybe it'll come out for the App store, too...let's hope.

Oh, thanks, Justin! :P The only good thing about my b-day being two months away is that it provides some time for NOA to announce/release that pink 3DS -- which I want my parents to buy me as a b-day gift...

I definitely wouldn't buy the PC version myself, but a Mac version sounds nice! Hopefully the folks at Tribute Games will announce such plans soon.
