IGN: Shred Nebula Multiplayer Hands-on!

The gameplay design behind Shred Nebula is fairly straight forward. There are bad guys, you have to shoot them. It's the little features where the game deviates from the norm. The single-player campaign centers around the player-controlled RIP-Rocket, a state of the art machine outfitted with navigation equipment, a defensive shield and some killer weaponry. Everything on your ship can be upgraded eleven times as you work your way through the adventure mode so the ship you end the game with will hopefully differ from the beginning...

Xbox360FanBoy - Shred Nebula warps to XBLA September 3

Crunchtime Games has informed us that their upcoming space shooter Shred Nebula will hit Xbox Live Arcade on September 3. Shred Nebula ditches the now ubiquitous twin-stick shooter design in favor of more traditional flight combat controls. Utilizing thrust-based flying and aiming akin to Asteroids and the classic PC title SubSpace, we're hoping for some epic dogfights. With two single player modes and eight person multiplayer matches that CrunchTime head James Goddard equated with character match-ups in the Street Fighter series, Shred Nebula at least represents something different. On XBLA that's definitely not a bad thing.

IGN Shred Nebula Interview!

In our continued press roll-out, IGN asks some tough questions about Shred Nebula. Here is a sample.

IGN: What is being done to ensure that the multiplayer game isn't just another arena style shooter?

James Goddard: In creating this game, we looked at all the games we like that are 'frag' based and asked the question: Why don't any of these offer unique characters with their own special weapons? Why do all of these primarily share the same ammo/weapon pool? The answer is because it is really freaking hard to make fighting style approach work in frag based games. We have worked through that difficulty and Shred Nebula will provide you with truly unique ships with their own weapons, specials and abilities.

GameSpot Announces CrunchTime Games

CrunchTime Games is announced as an official XBLA developer with a top secret game on the way-later revealed to be Shred Nebula! "After years of working as a hired gun on other people's projects, Goddard wanted a change. He began to reshape CrunchTime as an indie studio that would make its own games, as he said, "uninhibited by corporate BS." To help him in that endeavor, Goddard looked specifically for developers who still had a passion for the business, something he feared might be harder to find in veterans that tend to grow jaded with life in the industry."
