Game Description: While out exploring the galaxy with MOM, BUD’s parental spaceship, she goes to pieces. Literally – MOM’s all over the place. The positioning of that moon was inconsiderate. Now her ship parts are scattered far and wide across an entire alien planet so rich in flora and fauna it would make even the most jaded galactic gardener’s head spin. It’s up to BUD to collect all her parts and get them back to the moon.

One of the best things about working on ID@Xbox at Microsoft is the opportunity to interact with game makers and creators on a daily basis. One of the others is being able to share our games with our awesome fans, especially those people who are pumped to check out new and innovative experiences. Over the past couple of years, we have brought those groups together at an awesome event called the ID@Xbox Pre-PAX Open House. It’s been so much fun that we’ve decided to do it again!

That’s right, for the third year in a row we’re inviting gamers to visit us on the Microsoft campus and help us kick off PAX West with the latest ID@Xbox games! We’re going to be showcasing more than 50 games, including some of the most highly anticipated upcoming titles, as well as some new surprises. Beyond that, you can pick up collectible pins from each of the games (while supplies last) and enter to win some great prizes. We hope you can join us!
