The credit crunch gets colourful with Laughing Jackal's Orbit.

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.
