According to Videogaming247
, Jeff Minter's Gridrunner+++
is set to release on the XBLA at the end of April, after a long wait from the Llamasoft developer. In mid December, Minter unabashedly called Microsoft out, telling Eurogamer that Gridrunner+++
had been submitted "months ago" and Microsoft was simply "sitting on it.
For those keeping score at home, Minter previously lamented the slow sales of his original title, Space Giraffe
, and was flabbergasted when an XBLA remake of Frogger
outsold his first XBLA release by 10 to 1. "OK, we get the message. All you want on that channel is remakes of old, shite arcade games and crap you vaguely remember playing on your Amiga," Minter exclaimed in response to the news of Frogger's
success. Thankfully for Minter, Frogger 2
was released months ago and poses no threat to his latest arcade offering. Probably.
