Underneath its colorful graphics and charming purple blob character is a fully competent puzzle/platform game from independent developer Twisted Pixel. It's no more family friendly than a Mario game and no less enjoyable, either. PAX attendees realized this when the game won PAX 10's 2008 Audience Choice Award, beating out nine other indie contenders on the show floor. It's also a 2009 Independent Games Festival finalist. While the winner of this festival isn't decided until March, The Maw is now the recipient of another noteworthy achievement: being the first downloadable game worth your 800 Microsoft points ($10) in 2009.
