Capsized coming to iPad for free in January

Capsized will crash onto iPad in early January 2012 for free -- a price that seems almost alien. The game will support this exotic price point with a "robust in-game currency system," so players can make purchases and upgrades to weapons, skills and other stats.

The free action and exploration title has also been revamped for the touch-based device, and will retain more than a dozen non-linear levels. It also has the story-based campaign, along with other modes found in the for-pay versions.

Capsized is also expected to explore Xbox Live Arcade in December (for $10), along with PSN, Android and Mac platforms sometime in the first quarter of next year.

"Utilizing Unity, we have worked hard to bring Alientrap's fast-paced 2D platformer to life on tablet devices," says Robert Cassidy, indiePub's director of development. "Capsized will appeal to everyone looking for an engaging action-shooter experience. We paid a lot of attention to make certain this was not just a simple port from PC to tablet but, instead, re-designed and optimized the gameplay and controls for touch-based devices, making Capsized both unforgettable and addictive."

The iPad version of Alientrap's Capsized is being developed by Koolhaus Games and will be available early January 2012 for free for iPad via Apples' iTunes.
