Kick, Punch, Chainsaw: Shank

My chosen fighting style is an insane combination of guns, knives and chainsaws, all used simultaneously in a mad, clattering rush. And finally there's a game that represents this for me. Shank, from the creators of Eets, Klei Entertainment, is up for the Excellence In Visual Arts award at this year's IGF, and from the look of the trailer below it's going to be ace.

It's a side-scrolling 2D platformer, and it looks absolutely lovely. Especially when wedging a chainsaw through a man's chest, then pummelling him against the ground.
