.html This trailer for Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is the best thing you'll see all day, a gorgeous introduction to what may become one of your most anticipated releases, whenever and on whatever platform to this game is coming.

If you're unfamiliar with the game, currently listed only for a PC release at this point, this post at the official Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet blog will get you up to speed quickly. Creators Michel Gagne and Joe Olson envision the game as "a side-scroller that would combine old school arcade style game play with feature film quality design and animation," seemingly with a little black metal influence.

Gagne writes that the clip is comprised of nothing but in-game footage. The team is also apparently on the hunt for "potential financial partners," meaning some brilliant publisher or benevolent soul should make with the checkbook, posthaste!
