NinjaBee Working On New XBLA Game With Playable Avatars

NinjaBee is kicking off the New Year with a new game for Xbox Live Arcade. Each Tuesday in January the developer will show off new art from the project on its blog, leading up to a more detailed, official announcement at the end of the month. 

“2010’s gonna be a big year for us,” said NinjaBee’s Art Director Brent Fox. “We’re putting our biggest effort to date into making this game standout. The game is going to give people what we hope will be the most complete and best avatar experience on Xbox LIVE Arcade.”

The new game is NinjaBee’s third XLA title to allow gamers to play as their avatar. NinjaBee’s other avatar-based games on XLA include A Kingdom for Keflings and Band of Bugs. Several developers at NinjaBee also worked on the free Xbox LIVE Dashboard mini-games featuring avatars: Dunk Tank, Football Toss, Snowball Fight and Fireworks.

The new avatar-based game is the second game NinjaBee has announced it is bringing to XLA in 2010. The other, Ancients of Ooga, was announced last fall.
