Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

In the XBLA title Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet you navigate through a world of nightmares in a small UFO spacecraft. With stunning animation, numerous items, and eerie worlds, we weren't too sure what to expect. Luckily, we came away from ITSP only thirsting for more.

"However, the real star of the show is that dripping, oozing style, so unlike anything save perhaps the recent Limbo…but Limbo did not display its silhouetted figures in juxtaposition with sharp, glowing pastels, with luminous backdrops and stunning animation. Michel Gagné, an animator whose past credits include Star Wars: Clone Wars and the beloved Iron Giant, brought every ounce of his unique talents to bear. It isn’t so much what the world and creatures look like but how they move, with eerie, sinuous affect. It’s creepy, but a creepy that mercilessly affixes one’s eyes to the screen."
