Spooky platform puzzler Deadlight will be released on Xbox Live Arcade this summer, developer Tequila Works has announced.

Deadlight is set in a dark, apocalyptic version of 1980s America. First screenshots appear to show main character Randall Wayne silhouetted against various grim backdrops, wielding a gun and pickaxe.

Madrid-based developer Tequila Works was founded in late 2009. Deadlight is the indie outfit's first project and will be published by Microsoft Studios exclusively for XBLA.

The team boasts development veterans from the Commandos and Motorstorm series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Diablo III, Heavy Rain, and Overlord II.

"Our philosophy is to create tasteful things," Tequila Works boss Raúl Rubio said. "Our team integrates highly experienced people who still keep the ability to see the world with amazement every day, and enjoy challenging their creative talents."

"Being published by Microsoft Studios, one of the world's largest publishers, is a true reward for all the team's hard work."

Man, Microsoft's XBLA lineup is absolutely stacked this year. Their digital distribution strategy looks like it's paying off.

Why make your own exclusives when you can spend a fraction and get someone else to make it just for you?

This was a rhetorical question. Hope this turns out great!

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

Been my argument for a while

Buying up studios for an exclusive every other year doesn't seem like commercial sense to me.

Either hire the cream to create your own new studio or sub contract the thing entirely.



I'm not really here!

Sounds and looks like it has a lot of potential, hope it turns out good.



this indie new studio sure has alot of vet talent , microsoft would be smart and buy them like twisted pixel



It looks like a mix of Alan Wake, Limbo and Dead Island from the screens on that page. I loved Alan Wake and Limbo and some of the people behind it are behind some other freaking amazing games. Color me intrigued (so color me aqua blue).
