Califer Games makes its Xbox Live Indie Games debut this week with the launch of its shoot-'em-up / RPG hybrid March to the Moon. A Windows version is also available.

Rather than being assigned a weapons loadout as in other shooters, March to the Moon allows you to choose from among 12 different skillsets, each of which includes nine abilities. Players earn experience by killing enemies; skills and stats can then be upgraded with each level gained. Also included are a variety of customizable outfits, which are unlocked via in-game achievements.

The Xbox Live Indie Games version of March to the Moon is available for 80 Microsoft points ($1). The Windows edition is priced at $2.99.
