Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

Edit: The incorrect video was posted on GT earlier, and has now been replaced with an HD offering.

It's been almost two years since the last time we posted a trailer of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. This is extraordinary for two reasons. Firstly, this 2D indie shmup has been quiet for two years. Secondly, RPS is old enough to write that. It still looks like a cute, interesting shooter, with an extended trailer to see below.

There appear to be some rather lovely short animations that will be a part of it. You can watch them on the official site, and even donate to his bandwidth costs. By the second half of the trailer, as you're watching the game itself, it's all a bit more realistic, but still looks quite a lot of fun. The art style is, obviously, beautiful. You can read an interview with developer Michel Gagné at the Escapist's site to get a pile of more detail.

The release date is yet to be announced, and while platforms haven't been settled on, Michel Gagné assures us, "Our goal is to get it on as many platform as possible."
