Hey everyone, I just wanted to take the time to make a quick announcement regarding our recently released platformer for the XBox 360 on the Xbox Live Indie Games service: Super Avatar World. In the game, you and up to three friends take control of your Xbox Avatar and platform your way through 16 levels, solo or cooperatively.
Since this was a quick and dirty platformer made to test and button down our engine, we made every attempt to make it as cheap as possible and reward the player for giving us enough feedback on it to use in our next, more ambitious sequel/update of the game, in which we’ll truly try to create one of the best experiences on the system. We’re listening to all feedback on it, and using it all to really button up the next release and provide the “perfect” release –less “floaty” jumping, less loading (which was a release coding issue that we have to figure out), and harder levels are all things that are noted and will be addressed.
Due to being a quick, experimental release, as opposed to a real for-profit venture, the game is priced as low as possible (80ms points, or 1 dollar, which is the cost of buying your avatar a hat or something on the service). We also unlocked everything in the (Microsoft forced) trial so that you can have the full experience while playing. Also, in order to give something back to people that take the time to play it, we have a speedrun contest in which people can compete to win up to 1,000 MS points, included in the free trial so you don’t have to buy it to play.
So, please check out and tell others about the game, email us feedback so that we can include your suggestions in the future, major, release, and try out the contest if you like to try and win some free Microsoft Points! Thanks for reading this thread and trying out or game/telling others!Media and links:

Also, here are a few codes (they work on a first come/first served basis, if one doesn’t work, it means someone already used it) to be used to buy the game for free, too, since we’re trying to make the game as “free” as Microsoft will let us to as many people as possible.
