Microsoft Snatches Up Twisted Pixel

Some might say Microsoft is only in it for the beard

There’s no question that I am deeply in love with Twisted Pixel’s off-brand humor and inventive gameplay, we’ve had a solid relationship for several years now.

Maybe it was because I forgot to text back that one time, maybe it was because I didn’t immediately buy their latest game – The Gunstringer (although I intend to, the demo is amazing), or maybe it was because we were never official, but Microsoft has slipped in like some modern-day Casanova and snatched them away.

I’m happy for them, no really, they’re better off together.  At least they’re not living together yet, Twisted Pixel will remain for the time being at their Austin, TX offices.

With Twisted Pixel having access to some very very deep pockets now, I’m pretty sure we’ll see some much larger games from them in the future, I wish them the best…even though they broke my heart.

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.

    Hopefully this doesn’t go the way of RARE…
