Hello Games, a new indie games start-up formed by ex-Criterion, Kuju, EA, Sumo and Climax developers, has announced Joe Danger, a unique stunt-em-up planned for release on a download platform in spring 2010.

"Joe Danger aims to recreate the childish joy of the first time you took a toy motorbike, doused it in lighter fluid, lit it, and launched it at high speed over your carefully constructed ramp out a second story window," said Sean Murray, lead developer. "You are Joe Danger, the world’s most determined motorbike stuntman. You live to thrill the crowd and break World Records. A call back to retro classics like Excitebike, this 3D side-scrolling stunt-em-up is a burst of sugar-rush fun for today’s jaded gamers."

Murray continued: "Take on your friends or race against your rivals - the reckless Team Nasty. You’ll laugh in the face of danger, and it’ll laugh back, as you bounce from boulder to boulder, towards a pile of mousetraps."

At the start of the game American daredevil Joe is publicly humiliated by the reckless Team Nasty and must work to regain his reputation as the Master of Disaster. Players will have to combo, boost and pull ludicrous tricks across more than 50 events to thrill the crowd and put Joe back on the podium.

The game will also feature a host of mini-games, a puzzle mode and a built in level designer that can be accessed at any time.

There's no confirmed release platform at this time, with Hello Games stating the game will appear on "one of XBLA/PSN/PC".

Does this fall into the category of Play.Create.Share? If not then does this genre only apply to PS3 titles?
