Microsoft announced the availability of Wik: Fable of Souls for the Microsoft Xbox 360, the action / adventure game title that has taken the Internet by storm – now available for download from Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360. The award-winning Reflexive Entertainment title is the latest of the most impressive entrants to the massively popular Xbox Live Arcade game portfolio.
Xbox Live Arcade, powered by Xbox Live Marketplace, is a central destination for Xbox 360 gamers to discover, download, try and buy smaller game titles directly onto their Xbox 360 console by connecting to Xbox Live. Fully integrated into the Xbox 360 console, gamers can jump straight into Xbox Live Arcade from the Xbox 360 Dashboard, where they can download new games, access their game collection, check out new releases and experience cool around-the-game features.
Winner of three awards at the 2005 Independent Games Festival including Best Art, Best Original Game Design, and Game of the Year, Wik: Fable of Souls delivers a gaming experience like no other. The adventure game sensation features seven different play modes (three of which have multiplayer functionality) and more than 120 jaw-dropping levels, enchanting atmospheric music, stunning effects, superb graphics and a unique play mechanic that centers around the main character, Wik, swinging around the world by his tongue – yes his tongue - like a cross between Tarzan and a frog catching a fly.
The full version of Wik is available for download via Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points. In addition, Xbox 360 gamers with a broadband Internet connection can download a fully functional trial version onto their hard drive or memory unit and experience the game for themselves – for free.
