The Maw Enters “River Redirect”
This Wednesday

Second of Three DLC Levels for
The Maw Coming This Week

For those wanting longer levels and
more use of the various powers from The Maw, Twisted Pixel Games has announced
that a new level called “River Redirect” will be launching this Wednesday, March
11 on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 100 Microsoft Points ($1.25 USD). This level features
the Brute Bounty Hunter, introduced in the first DLC level “Brute Force”, and
showcases more advanced gameplay and combined use of Maw’s powers.

This is the second of three DLC
levels that Twisted Pixel Games has been working on ever since The Maw
development wrapped last year. “With River Redirect we tried to make a more
puzzle-focused level that requires a bit more skill than some of the game’s
other levels,” explains Lead Designer Sean Riley. “Frank finds a raging fire
blocking his path, but with Maw’s powers you can find a way to redirect a river
to extinguish the flames.”

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.”
