Brute Force coming to The MAW this Wednesday!

February 17, 2009


First of Three DLC Levels for The
Maw Coming This Week

For those wanting more from The Maw,
Twisted Pixel Games has announced that a new level called "Brute Force" will be
launching this Wednesday, February 18 on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for 100 Microsoft
Points ($1.25 USD). Featuring new puzzles, characters, cinematics, and explosive
action this level pits Frank and Maw against a new foe: the Brute Soldier, a
member of the bounty hunters’ elite strike force sent to stop Maw at any cost.

This is the first of three DLC
levels that Twisted Pixel Games has been working on ever since The Maw
development wrapped last year. "There’s a period of time where we’re not allowed
to touch the game because it’s going through certification, but there was more
we wanted to do, so rather than calling it a day we threw ourselves into making
all new levels," explains CEO Michael Wilford. "We’ve never done DLC before so
it’s a bit of an experiment for us, but there seems to be a lot of excitement
for it so I don’t think we can go wrong."

Each DLC level will expand The Maw
storyline by fitting in between the original levels as "deleted scenes". "As
with any production, there are always pieces left on the cutting room floor that
you wished could have made it into the final cut," says CCO and Director Josh
Bear. "We had a lot of half-finished story elements and gameplay mechanics, so
we are picking the best ones, polishing them up and making new levels that are
bigger in size and scope than the ones in the main game."
