Moonshot Games, which was formed over a year ago by ex-Bungie employees, has announced its first game. Titled Fallen Frontier, the game is a 2D side-scrolling shooter. It features a sci-fi setting, plus single-player and co-op modes, so it seems like the developers have kept some of that Bungie DNA.

The team released an announcement trailer for the upcoming game, introducing the story and showing off some gameplay in action. That's all we know so far, though, as no pricing, release dates, or platforms have been announced.

Attendees of PAX East in Boston this weekend can play the game for themselves. Moonshot will be in booth 759, giving the crowd hands-on time with Fallen Frontier.

      This gives me a huge Shadow Complex mixed with Bionic Command vibe. They even used the awesome splitscreen implementation from the BC remake. I bet it's going to be like SC though and we are not going to get a pc version :(

      This looks cool. I'm guessing XBLA/PSN title. Hoping for some Shadow Complex like shooty explory goodness.

      Looks like fun. The animations almost look procedural or something. Maybe they are using a 3D engine for faux 2D? Reminds me of Paper Moon oddly enough. http://blurst.com/paper-moon/

      Does anymore remember Abuse from Bungie with Crack Dot Com. This has a lot of the same gameplay mechanics and a similar feel/vibe to me.

        Yup, Abuse/Shadow Complex, and it looks phenominal.

      You run, you shoot, you kill things. Fun if you like that kind of thing, but aside from that flippin' awesome looking split-screen it looks like an average side-scroller with good art direction.

      Hmmm... modern day Abuse with a grappling hook?! That looks kinda awesome!

      Looks like they beefed up the Abuse engine

      I hope it's just really early in production because it looks like a game you'd find in XBL Indie Games for $2. :|

      Interesting maths there.

      4.07×10^16m in 7.89x10^8 seconds is 51.6*10^7m/s, so that's relativistic.

      So if it takes 25 years in reality, due to special relativity (t=t0/sqrt(1-u^2/c^2) it'd only feel like 24.6 years.

      Though I don't think you'd care too much if you were cryogenically frozen.
