Firebase Industries has released the first screenshots from the PC version of their indie game, Orbitron: Revolution. Orbitron: Revolution was previously available exclusively on XBLA and was running at 30fps. Naturally, the PC version was rewritten to accomodate with 60fps and Firebase aims to deliver an excellent PC version of their game and not a straight conversion of the Xbox 360 version. No release date has been announced as of yet.
Orbitron challenges players to fend off waves of enemies in a series of looping, side-scrolling stage, similar to Midway’s arcade classic game, Defender. In its PC version, players can use either the keyboard controls or Xbox controller for PC and the UI and HUD have all been created for display in 1920×1080.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
