If this won’t get you into the spirit of winter, nothing will! In possibly the coolest avatar-based game idea I’ve ever seen, indie developer Hotwave Games introduces us to their latest accomplishment – Avatar Wave: Snowball Fight. In case you’re deathly afraid of the snow or live in locations where the white wintery flakes never make an appearance, this title pits your Xbox Live avatar against others in a snowball fight that will determine the King of Winter! (Ok, I just made that up.)
In Avatar Wave: Snowball Fight you can face off against others in a snowball fight, if you haven’t figured that out yet. Dress your avatar up for winter and challenge your friends to a snowball fight and see who can get the most head-shots.
There are both an Arcade and a Survival mode (is there blood?) and you can play online with friends or strangers alike. It’s also reportedly perfectly safe, although I have my doubts!
Lead Programmer Percy had this to say about the game and how they came up with the idea for a snowball fight game:
Snow is the most dominant in the feeling of Winter and thus we decided to make a snowball fighting game. In the development process, we always keep the gameplay simple so that a wide range of players can have fun with it. Players can find some tactics in the game and they can defeat enemies easily by mastering those skills!
You can pick up this little gem on Xbox Live Marketplace for 240 Microsoft spacebucks. Sounds fun, no? If you’re not quite sure, check out some quick shots of the game in the video below.
