Eidos New Media, a division of publisher and developer Eidos focused specifically on emerging platforms and technologies, has announced a partnership with UK based Strawdog Studios to develop Geon:emotions for Xbox Live Arcade. Scheduled for a summer release, the game represents Eidos’ first title developed exclusively for the online service. Described as a “psychedelic, pick-up-and-play game of rapidly changing tactics,” Geon:emotions will support up to four players, each playing as one of eight different emotions – Rage, Passion, Fear, Envy, Rapture, Courage, Bliss or Melancholy. According to a statement announcing the new game, each emotion will feature distinct weaknesses and strengths, which players will have to exploit in order to “collect pellets and score goals.” “Geon: emotions is our first title for Xbox Live Arcade and we’re really proud of it,” said Simon Protheroe, New Media and IT Director at Eidos. “It’s the perfect mix of fun, action and head-to-head competition which works so well on Live Arcade.”
