We don't love hype-building countdown clocks, but we are excited to see 5th Cell's new offering. Scribblenauts didn't work perfectly, butSuper Scribblenautsfixed many of its problems,and thecreativity displayed by both of the gamesput the dev on our list ofcreative forcesto watch.

But this new title may not be so adorable. The countdown page is all crusty dirt and boot prints, and we don't yet know if that reveals anything about the game. All we know is that it will use Valve's Source engine, and will be a downloadable XBLA game.We'll know morein seven days!
