I had the good fortune of speaking briefly with Astroman’s game designer Michael Stearn, and musician Jeff Ball after posting my original entry about the Xbox Live Indie Arcade game and it’s free original soundtrack and both creators were extremely gracious, and glad to hear that the game is getting more online attention.
So to that end, I wanted to again take a moment to steer anyone that might be interested in the game to the Xbox Live Marketplace where Astroman can be purchased and downloaded for 240 Microsoft Points ($3.00). The more support they can get for the game early on, obviously the better. A free demo is available for anyone wanting to try the game first.
And yep, I’m still kicking myself that I can’t download the game at the moment (which is what you get for halving the cost of a system) but you can bet that I’m going to get this downloaded as soon as possible so as to put my money where my mouth is. In the meantime, I can definitely spread the word as this is a whole lot of great stuff in this little indie game by every indication.
