Aegis Wing is a 2007 scrolling shooter video game developed by Carbonated Games and three independent Microsoft interns for the Xbox Live Arcade.
The game was released worldwide on May 16, 2007, available free to all Xbox Live members in North America.
Aegis Wing is a side-view scrolling shooter, where the player controls a small ship pitted against countless foes.
Players control a spacecraft, like many classic shooters, such as Aegis Wing, but the entire game is timed to music, similar to modern rhythm games.
Nonetheless, the interns were able to finish their work on Aegis Wing by the end of the summer, handing the game off to Carbonated Games for final polish before release.
