SDCC: Shadow Complex: Lots of game for a little bit of money


2:00 PM on 07.25.2009



When we heard about a new Metroidvania-style XBLA game coming from Epic Games and Chair, our ears perked up. It's been awhile since we've had a good side-scrolling adventure game, hasn't it?

Chair's Donald Mustard met with us to tell us a bit about his latest title, Shadow Complex, and it was there that we discovered that this great-looking, robust platformer would only be 1200 Microsoft Points. Really? This game looks to be worth $20 or more, as far as I'm concerned. Hats off to them for the generous price.

We also chatted about speed runs and advanced weaponry, as you'll see in our video below. The most interesting weapon we saw was a foam gun, which lets you totally blanket an enemy in quick-hardening foam. Haven't you always wanted to buy one of those cans of foam and shoot it at someone? It's like that. Or you could use it to reach previously unreachable platorms by shooting a step stool for yourself. Crazy stuff. We can't wait to give it a try.
