The Summer of Arcade continues this week with:

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet - 1200 MSP
In this Insanely Twisted, 2-D action-adventure game, explore unique environments and battle bizarre creatures as you make your way toward the center of the mysterious Shadow Planet! Solve complex puzzles and upgrade your ship with alien technology as you fight to save your home world. Featuring both local and Xbox LIVE multiplayer game modes.

As detailed by osubluejacket in a previous post, as part of a special bonus offer, if gamers purchase all five Summer of Arcade titles, they will receive a free copy of Crimson Alliance, which is set for a September 7th release and a price point of 1200 MSP. The Marketplace describes Crimson Alliance with the following:

Explore the mystical world of the Crimson Empire in this action-RPG adventure. Chose to play as the powerful wizard, Direwolf; the battle-hardened mercenary, Gnox; or the mysterious assassin, Moonshade. Play Crimson Alliance co-operatively with up to 4 players on the same console or over Xbox LIVE. Work together combining your unique abilities against the nefarious Cult of the Soul Siren and the fearsome beasts they control. Can you stop them before their dark plans are complete?
