Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions has announced it has a new game in development for Xbox Live Arcade, following on to the last two XBLA titles to emerge from the studio, Stacking and Costume Quest.

Dubbed Trenched, the new game is all about mech combat and represents an interesting direction for a studio which has previously released whimsical, comedy titles.

Players will take the role of a soldier in the Mobile Trench Brigade, the only surviving arm of the Human resistance in the face of an alien invasion. Big, stompy robots abound, with multiple miniguns apparently strapped to every surface that's big enough to hold one.

The mechs will be highly customisable and, while it's not confirmed, the trailer heavily hints towards multiplayer or co-op functionality.
