Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet Heading to XBLA

By Alice O'Connor, Mar 30, 2010 5:40am PDT Indie developer Fuelcell Games and artist Michel Gagné have confirmed that their action adventure Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will be released for download on Xbox Live Arcade.

The silhouetted side-scroller revolves around exploring the Shadow Planet to unlock its secrets while picking up upgrades and attempting to dodge its hazardous environments and downright delightful tentacled blinking shadow beats. It also looks punishingly difficult, if you like that sort of thing.

Gagné also hints "No one here is saying that there won't be a PC version." Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet's release date remains unknown so, for now, here's the debut trailer from last year. You can also enjoy Gagné's short film series Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppets, which inspired the game's look.

  • I love the look and style of this game. There seems to be a lot of stuff happening right now in the bite-sized gaming category. There are a lot of very cool Indie games... a lot of big developers doing downloadable XBLA games like 1943... there have been some very good games coming out in this sector. It seems like the truly creative and different games are thriving on the downloadable services. When they first kicked off all we were getting were cheezy redo's of very old arcade games and a bunch of 8 directional shooters. Now it seems to be were all the cool kids play. I like it.
