'Plain Sight' Accepting Beta Sign-ups - Screens

Plain Sight is a multiplayer game using Microsoft's XNA development tools. The premise in Plain Sight is quite simple, you are a sword wielding robot, your goal is to grow bigger by collecting points through killing other robots and self-destructing to cash in those points, preferably destroying more robots in the blast.

Plain Sight is a 3D multiplayer arcade game with robots; robots who bounce around cityscapes on mini planetoids and wield swords which are used to destroy one another.

Destroying another robot makes you bigger, stronger, better… a different colour. It also gives you points.

Spoiler: You can’t keep the points until you kill yourself.

“This is a call to anyone interested in annihilating robots with a sword whilst they bounce around a tiny planetoid, but also that wish to help a out a small developer to test their first title.” said studio head, Robin Lacey

Small Indie developers can’t even afford to buy themselves a Turkey for Christmas, which means helping them to test their game will allow you to enjoy robot based multiplayer action, and feel warm and fuzzy inside at the same time - so sign up and help to test one of the most unheard of games you’ll hear about today.

Beta testing will begin before Christmas and continue through into January. Everyone is welcome to come along and show us how to play our own game.

Plain Sight is scheduled for launch in early 2009, with a price point under £10.
