Twisted Pixel Lets Down
President, Country with Splosion Man Release

Thanks Obama For Slamming Video
Games Right Before Our Release Date

Twisted Pixel Games was thrilled to
hear President Obama’s directive for parents to start “putting away the Xbox,”
an announcement made right on the eve of Splosion Man’s release. That’s cool. We
weren’t excited to be kicking off the Summer of Arcade or that early reviews
have been so positive about our game, or that it is practically a steal at 800
Microsoft Points ($10.00 USD). Go ahead and tell people not to play games. But
answer me one thing, Mr. President: If not us, who is going to teach our
nation’s kids the unimportance of spelling or about how scientists will turn
into slabs of meat when you splode them?

Splosion Man doesn’t just lure
families apart with its 50 level single player campaign and separate 50 level
2-4 player multiplayer campaign, it also dangles several treasures sure to
corrupt even the most tight-knit household. A free unlockable premium theme
headlines a package containing two free gamerpics and, perhaps most troubling,
hidden within its codey depths, the ability to grant two male and two female
free avatar accessories once the functionality becomes available on Xbox Live.

The den of evil that is
contains further temptation, offering downloadable faceplate templates, desktop
backgrounds, and the entire musical score from award-winning composers John
DeBorde and Joshua R. Mosley. The siren call of each piece is divided into
several layers, which react dynamically during gameplay, offering much more
stimulation and interest than homework or family time ever could.
