Friday the 13th Sees a Demo of Monstrous Proportions to be Released on Xbox Live

SouthPeak Games today announced that a demo of Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia is now

available on Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace. This on and off-line demo comes ahead of the game's full release, May 15th, for the Xbox 360 and PC.

Developed by Artificial Studios, Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia tosses 4 unlikely friends in the middle of an all out battle against legions of dismembered zombies, swarms of unforgiving demons and of course all of your favorite classic undead fiends too; like Dracula, the Wolfman, Frankenstein's monster and more await our protagonists as they defend their suburban hometown. Making good use of the Unreal 3 graphics engine for a top-down viewing perspective, Monster Madness' world is brought to life with advanced physics middleware from AGEIA, making sure that the action is suitably dynamic, always entertaining and never dull.
