Summer of Arcade temperature increases with “From Dust” and “Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet”

Summer of Arcade continues with “From Dust” (Ubisoft Montpellier/Ubisoft), the second release in Xbox LIVE Arcade’s hot summer series. Launching July 27, “From Dust” is the latest original concept by Eric Chahi, visionary creator of “Another World.” In this game, you’ll behold the beauty of a primitive world pulsing with life and face the might of nature. August 3rd will see the launch of “Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet” (Fuelcell/Microsoft Studios) where players explore the depths of several interconnected themed areas, fighting swarms of enemies, battling bosses, solving mind-bending puzzles and acquiring power-ups to unlock new parts of the map. Players are sure to love the fusion of art and classical animation in this adventure created by artist Michel Gagne and game industry veteran Joe Olson.
