Double Fine hitting the trenches

Sesame Street isn’t the only project in the pipeline over at Double Fine, as Tim Schafer’s development studio has revealed another project exclusive to the Xbox Live Arcade. A reveal trailer for the new game Trenched. The first trailer and screens were revealed at this week’s GDC in San Francisco.

Trenched is a bit of a different game than the recent works of Double Fine; while the titles such as Costume Quest, Stacking, and Sesame Street are more family oriented, Trenched aims to a more hardcore audience with a dirtier, warfare theme. Trenched puts players in control of the Mobile Trench Brigade as your fend off the Monovision Menace. The Brigade is a highly skilled section of the military trained to use a “revolutionary” breed of weapons that combines the best of mobile firepower with stationary defense systems; basically, they are mobile trenches similar to giant mechs.

Although the game has a darker style than the studio’s recent projects, it looks every bit as fun... check it out:
