As the Beatnik team puts it:
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.
That says about all you should need to hear, but, in fuller detail: the game takes Mario Galaxy‘s up-ended flirtatious approach to gravity and world design, and brings it into a modern robot arena setting with fantastic aerial acrobatics. Most uniquely, its multi-faceted score-by-suicide approach sees you more vulnerable the more points you rack up, as you’re only able to bank those points by killing yourself, keeping each individual’s tension high throughout.
Beatnik plan on keeping the beta running until February 8th, and releasing the full version shortly thereafter for PC, with an Xbox 360 version in the works after that. Check their website for more info on the ongoing beta updates, and the poster and T-shirt wares in the store, which I covet already.
