You know and love developer Twisted Pixel for games like Comic Jumper, Splosion Man and The Gunstringer. You know Microsoft from such products as Windows 95 and the Xbox 360. These two titans of industry are joining forces. While I would have hoped for Twisted Pixel mounting a hostile takeover of Microsoft, in the real world, Microsoft has purchased Twisted Pixel. All of TP's future content be exclusive to the Xbox 360.

“It is really exciting for us to solidify our long-standing relationship with Microsoft Studios," Twisted Pixel CEO Michael Wilford said.As part of the family of Microsoft Studios we look forward to bringing even bigger and richer experiences to Xbox and Twisted Pixel fans around the world.”

Twisted Pixel joins well known developers like Rare, Turn 10, Lionhead and Big Park Studio under the Microsoft roof.

Let's hope the quirky, peculiar and gamer-centric personality of Twisted Pixel games remains with the new corporate parents.  Also: Let's hope the beards remain. All Twisted Pixel games are powered by epic beards, and I'd hate for some "You Gotta Shave!" memo to come down from Bill Gates.

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
