Avatars XBLA game unveiled

A Kingdom for Keflings, out on Nov 19th.

Microsoft's Gamescore Blog has lifted the lid on the first Xbox Live Arcade game to feature playable Avatars.

A Kingdom for Keflings is a city-building game in which your Avatar, a giant, orders Kefling minions around. It will be available on November 19th alongside the New Xbox Experience interface update that will bring Avatars to the 360. The game will cost 800 MS points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).

You can build your village up into a city on your own, or co-operatively with up to three friends. You can order the ankle-high Keflings to gather resources and build and paint buildings, and you can kick them around if you're not happy with their work.

The gameplay is seasonal, the graphics changing dynamically to reflect the time of year, and there's dynamic music, too.

A Kingdom for Keflings is developed by NinjaBee, the Live Arcade spcialists responsible for Outpost Kaloki X, Band of Bugs and Cloning Clyde.
