Like Costume Quest and Stacked before it, Trenched is one of those downloadable games that almost makes you feel like you're getting away with robbery for paying $15 for it rather than full retail price. This is obviously not a quickie release; top to bottom, it's polished and slathered with personality. It has quickly become my current favorite multiplayer experience on Live and is definitely my favorite tower defense game to date. My only wish is for more missions, parts and weapons, but the core experience is robust enough to come highly recommended. It's another win for Double Fine in downloadable games.

Watched Dave play this at PAX.  It looks great.

This is definitely an intriguing looking/sounding game.

This game is addicting.  I've only played the first three or four levels but now I keep replaying level 2 trying to get a gold medal (80% base health).  I must suck.

Don't let the words 'tower defense' scare you off if you don't like that genre.  This game has a unique flavor.

I hear the online with more than two players is laggy.  If anybody wants to play online tonight, let me know.
