Roundabout spins onto Xbox One this Friday

There's no better way to get from point A to point B than by spinning around in an endless circle, as Xbox One owners will find out this Friday.


File this under the category of "Games you might have missed." Back in September, indie developer No Goblin released a quirky driving game called Roundabout. With Full Motion Video cutscenes driving its story, Roundabout saw players spinning their car around to reach their destinations in a puzzle-adventure environment. Those that missed its arrival on PC now have a chance to catch it on Xbox One, as No Goblin has announced a February 20 release date.

Roundabout tells the story of Georgio Manos, the most famous revolving chauffeur of the 1970s. Players must pick up passengers and squeeze through tight spaces, all while stuck in a perpetual spinning motion. The story, as one might imagine, is about as silly as the concept, with over-the-top acting and wacky FMV cutscenes.

Roundabout will arrive on Xbox One this Friday for $14.99. Meanwhile, those looking to catch up with the game on Steam can find it there right now for the same price.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
