Geon emotions Announced for XBLA This Week

Tomorrow’s Xbox Live Arcade offering will be a single game: Geon emotions. The game was developed by Strawdog Studos, working with Eidos, and offers both versus and co-op multiplayer modes. Frankly, I don’t know what to make of this game as it appears to be all about abstract gameplay and… emotions. …yeah. Here, allow the official game description and feature list to confuse you:

Love it? Hate it? Does it make you angry? Does it calm you down? Feel the energy of powerful emotions as you compete amongst your opponents to master the unique sport of Geon: Emotions. What’s your strategy going to be? Will you choose to spread fear among the other players, or unleash a wave of bliss over them with the aim of subverting their cause? Play to your emotional strengths. Allow your dark side to dominate, or win through speed, courage, and style. You can be the master of Geon, but you must learn to use your emotions to your advantage.

  • A different game: Geon: Emotions is something different, a fast-paced abstract sports game that lets you explore your emotions as you compete against opponents.
  • Next-gen graphics: The razor sharp visuals are accompanied by a pulse-pounding soundtrack.
  • Game modes: Perfect your skills in a head-to-head duel or try the time attack to win medals and unlock mini-games. Then, go multiplayer on Xbox LIVE with up to four players and let it all hang out on the emotional battlefield.

I’m still confused, so feel free to try and explain if you know what this is all about in the comments. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait until the game is released tomorrow for 800 Microsoft Points. It’s times like this I’m really glad that every Arcade game has a trial available.

Sounds like this should have been on the PS3, but maybe Moneysoft hired Sony’s old marketing team and they came up with this ? Kudos for trying something different though, and that goes for all the consoles out there at the moment.
