Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet: The coolest thing we've seen all week

Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network are full of surprises. What started off as homes to endless UNO matches and Frogger ports now boast some of the most unique, challenging and unapologetically artistic games of this generation… experiences like Braid, Flower, Everyday Shooter and upcoming Limbo.

Here's another game I'm hoping will be added to that list – the awesomely titled but even more awesomely animated Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, confirmed today for release on XBLA. Watch this trailer and check out some of the screens below. I can barely tell what's going on, or what genre this game will fall into, but I can already tell that Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will be unlike anything I, and probably you, have ever played. In an industry choked with shooters and RPGs, that's enough reason to take notice.

    Every screen looks like Patapon. Who's making this?

    LocoRoco + Pixeljunk Shooter + World of Goo + Dimmu Borgir(!?)

    And the 360 continues to win...

    This game looks incredible. I hope it comes to PSN or Steam.

    I want it.

    Looks awesome, each of the screens could double as wallpaper on my computer

    It's pretty obvious this will be a platformer, but the unique setting and animation style of the game will surely make it a winner. I don't know who Michel Gagné is, but he's in for several awards if you ask me.

    reminds me of Loco Roco....without the metal of course.
