Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet PC Release Date Announced



Official Press Release

Shadow Planet Productions is pleased to announce Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will finally be unleashed on the PC gaming community. The critically acclaimed game was recently awarded the BAFTA for "Best Debut Game", the Annie Award (animation's highest honor) for "Best Animated Video Game", and has received numerous prizes and nominations from industry media outlets.

Shadow Planet Productions' partners and creators of ITSP, Michel Gagné and Joe Olson are particularly excited about this release as it will not only feature the single player Campaign and multiplayer Lantern Run, but will also include the Shadow Hunters Co-op mode which was released as a separate Game Add-On for the Xbox LIVE Arcade version. Players can play locally or online with their friends to defeat the infectious shadow entity once and for all!

"Seeing ITSP run on PC is a sight to behold", said Gagné, "but what I'm really excited about is to finally have Shadow Hunters as part of the main package. I feel like that Co-op mode didn't get the chance it deserved as a separate Game Add-On, but this time around, I'm confident it will". “ITSP is right at home on today’s powerful gaming PCs”, said Olson, “with increased resolution, improved controls, and two multiplayer modes we truly believe the PC version of ITSP packs in a lot of value.”

In conjunction with the PC release, the Xbox LIVE Arcade version will be discounted to 800 MSP. The Shadow Hunters Game Add-On will continue to be available for 400 MSP, letting Xbox 360 owners complete their Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet experience.

Additionally, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will be available for pre-sale on Steam for 25% off one week prior to release, beginning April 10th, 2012 and ending April 16th, 2012.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet for PC will be available for purchase on Steam on April 17th, 2012 for $14.99 USD and on Games For Windows LIVE Marketplace for 1200 MSP.

Will there be a four pack at all? I would totally buy that (still buying it either way).

Does that mean it will have Games for Windows Live? If so, I consider that a reeeally bad decision... I'm not buying a double DRM'd indie title, and I'm sure lots of people will think as I do.

Games for Windows Live? Arrrrggg, don't do this to me! I've been waiting for this game for years, but I can't buy anything with GFWL. This is terrible. :(

Please, please, please don't use Games for Windows Live outside the GFW Marketplace. It ruins every game it touches.

Of course I already know the answer almost for sure, but I'll ask anyway: any plans for linux release?

Was the game only discounted on XBLA for the duration of the pre-release time, or is the price meant to be permanently lowered? Your sentence suggests the latter, so I was disappointed to find that it's [still?] listed at 1200 MSP as of this morning. Or does that price include the addon? I'd never heard of the game until reading about it in a Fez thread. Love the trial, though.
