GDC: Double Fine reveals Trenched for XBLA

Stacking and Costume Quest developer Double Fine revealed its latest downloadable game during GDC 2011, an Xbox Live Arcade title named Trenched.

Described as a "tower defense shooter," Trenched will enlist players in the Mobile Trench Brigade and arm them with "a combination of mobile firepower and stationary defenses" to repel "the evil Monovision menace." Mobile trenches--mechs--can be customised, with Double Fine claiming there are "thousands of possible loadouts."

The trailer mentions that players can "march side by side with allies from around the world," hinting heavily at a multiplayer component.

One imagines a formal announcement will be made soon with more details. While Costume Quest and Stacking were published by THQ, Trenched is coming from Microsoft Game Studios.
