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

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!

Fire watch with me: Firewatch gets first, mysterious trailer

I am into this. It's a bit inscrutable, sure, but a mystery game needs to be mysterious. I was into Firewatch as soon as I heard of the talent involved. Artist Olly Moss, whose work we enjoy regularly, along with Mark o...more
