Chair Entertainment's Shadow Complex is out now for the 360. The side-scroller was developed by Cliff Bleszinski for download on the 360, and so far it's been receiving raves from gamers around our office for its updating of an old-school game genre . (Check out the review here.) As cool as the game is, it was never designed to be an epic game -- In spite of its many secrets and upgrades, Shadow Complex provides maybe 10 hours of play... but there might be DLC coming.
Gamasutra caught up with Chair Entertainment creative director Donald Mustard, and asked him about the possibility of extending the game by offering players the chance to play as the antagonist in the same levels, kind of like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night did by allowing you to play as Richter Belmont after finishing the game as Alucard.
When asked, Mustard replied, "Man, you're going to make me tip my hand too much," and added: "I think that's a really compelling idea -- how about that?"
This is far from a confirmation, but deep in my heart, I believe this is the plan.
Have you played Shadow Complex yet? What do you think?
