Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, from Michel Gagné, just looks lovely


5:49 PM on 08.27.2007



 
From the French artist and animator who brought us Insanely Twisted Rabbits and the Saga of Rex comes this preview for his newest project, an indie shooter due out in 2008.  No word yet on what platform this will rock, and I'm frankly having a hard time writing this post because coming up with clever things to say about something that looks good is incredibly difficult. 
 
Go on, try it.  I'll be scanning the comments for your attempts at witty praise.
 
Stickypig, who sent me this link, suggested that I compare this trailer to the one for Alien vs. Predator: Requiem, and work in some nastiness that way.  And it's true, Shadow Planet's soothing linework and blooming movements cured me of the wracking cough that has plagued me ever since I spent a solid hour sobbing (and vomiting) hysterically after seeing the latest fewmet of crusted offal that clings to the haunch of the Alien franchise's flyblown corpse. 
 
Ah.  It feels good to say mean things!

Fun four player fighter Lethal League coming to more platforms

I got introduced to Lethal League by Ben Pack, who did our review of the unique fighter last year. Up to four players mash a ball around the stage. The ball gets faster and faster after each hit and is the only thing that ca...more
