Twisted Pixel Games, the Madison, IN developer who previously helped develop Midway's NBA Ballers, has announced its first original IP title with The Maw, an action/adventure game it intends to bring to Xbox Live Arcade.

Twisted Pixel says the game has players taking on the role of Frank an alien that teams up with The Maw, a "cute little blob with an insatiable hunger that makes him the most dangerous creature in the galaxy," whose power needs to be harnessed to help Frank find his way home.

The developer promises a "lengthy, full scope, single-player experience filled with hundreds of 3D character animations, intense cinemas, cutting edge graphics technology, and a professionally composed soundtrack," for its initial title.

Said CCO and The Maw director Josh Bear, "We're really excited that The Maw will be our first original title - I think it's a great example of the types of character-driven, content-packed experiences we want to deliver. Because it's such a focus for us, our characters exhibit more personality and humor than any of the other retail game I've worked on in the past."
