Novastrike dev unveils XBLA game

Co-op adventure fugitive chaser.

Novastrike developer Tiki Games has whipped the table-cloth off a brand new Xbox Live Arcade game called Interpol.

This little chestnut costs 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) and will be out sometime this winter - probably sometime after Father Christmas has visited. Excited.

Interpol pits the authorities against nasty fugitive Dr. Chaos, who's not to be confused with that other man on the run, Dr. Kimble. The idea is to pick apart exotic locales gathering clues until you can bring him and his cronies to justice.

This is done in an adventure-game fashion: rooms or scenes are presented in front of the player and evidence is searched for within them. More cerebral than reactive, we suppose.

And the best bit, apparently, will be doing this with up to three friends on Xbox Live.

Sounds intriguing, even if PSN offering Novastrike fell a bit flat, according to Metacritic.
