Microsoft has announced today that it's acquired Austin, Texas-based game developer Twisted Pixel, which is known for developing The Gunstringer for Kinect and XBLA title Splosion Man.

Twisted Pixel started out in 2006 as an independent studio developing Xbox Live Arcade titles, but it recently worked with Microsoft to develop an Xbox 360 exclusive for Kinect called The Gunstringer, which received a respectable score of 8.5/10 here on Strategy Informer.

The Gunstringer developer Twisted Pixel, creator of The Maw and 'Splosion Man, have said character focus is the "key thing across all" their game creations.

They've always "started with a cool character" and built the gameplay around them, including its "visual style and audio". It's "really missing" in today's games.

The boxed retail released of the Xbox Live Arcade triple pack is May 13th for the UK, and a day earlier in the US. It contains Limbo, Trials HD and 'Splosion Man.

The suggested retail price is $29.99. It will also be sold in Japan May 19th. Hopefully a retail release will spread these great titles to more Xbox 360s out there.
