10-minutes of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet gameplay footage

Fuelcell Games has released 10-minutes of gorgeous gameplay footage from Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet,  artist Michel Gagné’s forthcoming Xbox Live Arcade-exclusive silhouette shooter.

The game’s striking shadow puppet aesthetic come from Gagné’s own Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppets, a series of 12 interstitials created for Nickelodeon’s 2005 Halloween Shriekin Weekend, which you can watch on his site. The Canadian cartoonist originally pitched a much scarier version of the shorts,  in which he included “disturbing recordings of kids crying, screaming, hyperventilating.” Obviously, the network didn’t think the sounds of tormented middle schoolers would go over well with their 6-12 demographic, but you can still listen to it if that’s your thing. The FBI always has more room for one more on their watchlist.
