The game's officially set to touch down on December 6th in North America and December 7th in Europe. It'll be available as a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

In Orbit, the reality of the credit-crunch sends the national space program into disarray, forcing two top scientists to take matters into their own hands and steal cash, fuel and more in a desperate flight through space.

"By collecting the money mysteriously floating in orbit around the planets, you’ll give the project a cash boost, upgrading shonky systems and gaining new ships to move beyond the Moon – from Mercury to Uranus – as never before," reads Laughing Jackal's official pitch.

There's a trailer after the jump. Laughing Jackal's games are nearly always top-notch, so we're looking forward to getting our fingers on this.
