Butterfly Garden soft releasing this Fall

Butterfly Garden, the game where you mate, discover, and trade butterflies in a relaxing social atmosphere, will be making a soft release later this Fall. The Xbox Domain caught up with developer Autonomous Productions and learned that a stripped down version of Butterfly Garden will be entered into Microsoft's Dream Build Play XNA contest considered its "soft release". This soft release version will not include everything the game has to offer, but will be a test ground for visual water effects, controls, and to see what the overall reaction to the concept is like. Autonomous Productions also mentioned that Butterfly Garden should be ready to go Spring of 2008 for release on the XBLA. Butterflies never got us so excited.

This could be a great addition to XBLA. Sounds original and interesting.

That's right! Heard it here first! Another shooter on the 360 featuring what you thought were cute and cuddly butterflies are actually Monarchs of Death! One part Conker, 1 part cute butterfly and there you have it!

I kid, I kid. This game does sound refreshing and will be a welcome addition to XBLA.

It's a simulation in which you breed rare butterflies. Sort of like Pokemon with butterflies.

The hardcore gamer in me goes "uhh...boring",
but the girly girl in me squeals in delight and want to gather her sisters and friends to play. So yeah I am looking forward to this.
