Twisted Pixel Bought By Microsoft

On October 12 at 3 am (PDT) indie game dev studio Twisted Pixel was welcomed into the Microsoft family after six years of developing independent games for Microsoft platforms.

“Twisted Pixel has an incredible track record of innovative, critically acclaimed, and most importantly, fun, games,” said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president, Microsoft Studios. “Microsoft Studios is home to cutting-edge entertainment experiences, and the incredible creativity of the Twisted Pixel team will help drive further innovation around Kinect and Xbox LIVE.”

Translation: “Twisted Pixel fans will have more games to look forward to, but now we own their asses.”

Considering that every game produced by Twisted Pixel has been for XBLA or the Kinect, future  products by the studio aren’t likely to change. I just hope  Microsoft follows through on their promise and allows Twisted Pixel to continue injecting their signature sense of humour into new titles.
