XBLA Primer: Twisted Pixel

XBLA Primer is where we catalog XBLA games from a certain developer and give you the 411 on all their games. We also tap a little into their backstory and why they make great XBLA games

Michael Wilford and co. said that their new studio would focus on the digital market and XBLA was something they always thought would take off. Now with over four XBLA titles under their belt and being acquired by Microsoft, we thought we’d bring you a little list of some of their titles to bring you up on Twisted Pixel’s wackiness in the XBLA game market.
