Twisted Pixel thriller Wilson's Heart drops April 25

It's flying under the radar for most of you, but Twisted Pixel (The Maw, 'Splosion Man) has been off making an Oculus Rift game called Wilson's Heart, and it's coming out soon. Peter Weller is even in it! Set in the 1940s, this first-person...

Wilson's Heart was my biggest surprise of E3

During one of my appointments at E3, I was ushered into a room at the Oculus booth to take a look at something called "Wilson's Heart." I didn't know what type of game it would be, or who was making it, or anything, really -- I just saw the...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

Review: Ms. Splosion Man (iOS)

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 fa...

PAX: LocoCycle is looking sufficiently loco

In addition to checking out a playable build of Ms. Splosion Man, I also had the chance to view a private hands-off demo of LocoCycle, showing off about ten minutes of gameplay. To say that LocoCycle's theme is insane is pretty much a...

Twisted Pixel dev: Game industry is struggling, not dying

In the wake of massive studio closures these past few years, not to mention other eye-opening events like John Riccitello's resignation as CEO of Electronic Arts, it's hard to have a positive outlook on the industry's future. Three years ag...

The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles is out now on Windows 8

You guys remember FMV games, right? Well, even I remember them, and I'm the resident baby here at Destructoid. FMVs were interactive movies that, you guessed it, used full-motion videos. Think Dragon's Lair but with real actors on real set...

Gunstringer: Dead Man Running gets a trailer

I have a Windows Phone now, so it's my duty to post about Windows Phone games on Destructoid until I'm "over" it and go back to looking at stuff on Steam. Until that time, you can enjoy trailers such as the one above. It's for Gunstringer:...

Twisted Pixel's Mike Wilford explains WTF Lococycle is

The first thing I checked out at PAX this year was Twisted Pixel's Lococycle, which was just revealed (in terms of gameplay, at least) a few days beforehand. At a glance, the game is pretty ridiculous, and upon closer inspection, it's actu...

PAX: That guy stuck to the LocoCycle bike is named Pablo

Twisted Pixel is showing off LocoCycle for the first time ever to the public here at PAX, and it just looks insane. The game kind of feels like if Spy Hunter and Batman: Arkham City had hot, messy, unprotected sex on the bathroom floor of ...
