The War of the Worlds gets new screens and a trailer

I am really quite excited for The War of the Worlds, having played it at PAX. The moody, death-riddled platforming as seen in classics like Heart of Darkness and the more recent Limbo really resonates with me, and I think this could be a real winner. 

We've got a selection of screens and a new trailer for you to take a peek at, so go do that. Hopefully some of you care as much as I do.
