Have You Played… The Deadly Tower of Monsters?

You know that age-old idea that games should be more like FILMS because films are ART, and games should be like ART too?

ACE Team’s The Deadly Tower Of Monsters Announced

I like that I can never guess what ACE Team's next game will even be, let alone look like. What might the folks behind Zeno Clash, and Abyss Odyssey, and Rock of Ages make next?
