Twisted Pixel is independent again, no longer owned by Microsoft

Indie darling Twisted Pixel -- known for games such as 'Splosion Man, Comic Jumper, and The Maw -- didn't quite fit the "indie" bill over the past few years. That's because in 2011, the Austin, Texas-based team became a subsidiary of M...   read

Lococycle gets a permanent price reduction

Twisted Pixel's Lococycle is a rather polarizing game. Chris seemed to enjoy it. I, on the other hand, did not. Judging by the treatment that Microsoft's giving it, the general public appears to be just as divided. Major Nelson wrote o...   read

LocoCycle will feature live action scenes in its story

Twisted Pixel's launch title for Xbox One, LocoCycle, already stands out by way of its premise alone, in which an unfortunate mechanic is literally dragged into a conflict involving sentient motorcycles. Today, they've announced something ...   read

LocoCycle is more fun than it might initially look

For a while now, I've had the urge to play a Spy Hunter-like game. (But not, oddly enough, an honest-to-goodness, actual Spy Hunter -- trust me, I've tried.) I'm starting to look toward Twisted Pixel for a helping hand. LocoCycle is yet an...   read

LocoCyle is like Arkham meets Spy Hunter meets acid

After seeing Twisted Pixel's LocoCycle at multiple trade shows in the past, we were finally able to go hands-on with the game on the Xbox One. It's going to be a downloadable launch title when Microsoft's new console is released, with an Xb...   read

Ms. Splosion Man
  Watch Video Ms. Splosion Man is one of my favorite platformers to date. Like the original, it's charming, engaging challenging, and really put Twisted Pixel on the map for me. The mobile version translates most of the magic of the original to iOS in favor of serviceable touch controls, and a smoother graphical output. But it also shows the darker side of mobile gaming quite well.   read
