Hey EA cast-aways, paddle your cardboard boxes in Microsoft’s direction, because the console powerhouse recently posted a heaping helping of job vacancies.
More specifically, Microsoft’s looking for 54 fresh faces, most of whom will join either 343 Industries or the Project Natal team.
Interestingly, the company’s also hoping to scare up a lead producer to “work with an experienced team at MGS and the world-class developers at Epic to drive the success of Gears of War and Shadow Complex in the highly competitive and fascinating world of interactive entertainment.”
And Shadow Complex? But that game’s already out! Surely they’re not suggesting a… sequel? Why, that’s practically unheard of in the videogame industry!

Chair Entertainment co-founder Donald Mustard has confirmed to MTV Multiplayer that the developer is working on a new game, saying only as much that it’s in “the design phase.”
“We’re definitely working on…things. I’m just not going to tell you what it is…we’re still evaluating in the design phase.”
Is it Shadow Complex 2? We’d like to think so. It’s one of the best games released this year.

Dirty, rotten, no-good cheaters beware: The Major‘s got the best good/bad surveillance system this side of Santa Claus, and he knows what you’re up to. Case in point: Shadow Complex.
If you’re caught pulling a fast one in Shadow Complex, you’ll be removed from the game’s leaderboard, “investigated” for a complete Gamerscore reset, and – if your ill-gained Gamerscore is wiped clean – branded as a cheater on Xbox Live.
So yeah. Stop cheating. Otherwise, you’ll get something far worse than coal in your stocking from Chair Entertainment and Microsoft.

Shadow Complex sold more than 200,000 copies in its first week, making it the fastest-selling single-player XBLA game yet.
“Congratulations to Chair Entertainment and Epic Games for creating an outstanding game,” said Scott Austin, director of digitally distributed games at Microsoft. “As the capstone title of the second annual Summer of Arcade program, Shadow Complex has raised the bar for downloadable games. We’re proud to offer such high-quality content on Xbox LIVE Arcade.”
Whoever thought side-scrolling console games were a dying art must be feeling pretty foolish right now.
Thanks, Industry Gamers.

MTV Multiplayer got a chance to speak with Chair Entertainment about its upcoming Xbox Live Arcade side-scroller Shadow Complex. According to Chair co-founder Donald Mustard, his company’s game will be beatable in under two hours!
This, of course, conflicts with prior reports, which stated that running the game’s gauntlet would take anywhere from 10-15 hours. However, that’s also correct. As it turns out, Chair is including “sequence breaks” in its game. A sort of gaming artifact, sequence breaks allow players of games like Metroid to slip past sections of a game and acquire certain items before they’re supposed to.
Granted, sequence breaks are normally exploits discovered by players, but Chair claims it’s included the possibility of sequence breaks in the development of its game. Thus, the developer hopes Shadow Complex becomes the talk of the speed running town, and has even included an achievement for players who complete the game in under two hours.
Back in our day, we didn’t get any rashin-frashin points for speed runs, and we liked it. Kids these days.

Epic’s Shadow Complex is going to be big for Xbox Live, service boss Marc Whitten told GI at E3. Bigger than big. The biggest in world history.
“Shadow Complex will be one of the biggest games ever,” he said.
“I don’t mean biggest in size, but biggest in terms of quality, depth, story, that we’ve ever seen.”
The game, announced during Microsoft’s E3 press conference last week, isn’t the only jewel in Live crown this summer, Whitten was quick to add.
“Marvel Vs Capcom is another one a lot of people have been asking about,” he said. “So I’m actually really excited about that line-up.”
Full interview through there.

Shadow Complex will more than likely cost buyer at least $20.00 when it launches on Xbox Live.
At least that is what Epic programmer Rob McLaughlin told Joystiq when asked.
The title would “likely not see price point below $20″ he told the site.
So there ya have it.

Cliffy B just waltzed on stage at Microsoft’s E3 press conference to reveal Epic’s first Xbox Live Arcade game called Shadow Complex.
Pulled from the press release:
“New from Epic Games and Chair Entertainment, Shadow Complex combines the best of old-school side-scroller design with modern, cutting-edge gameplay and incredible high-definition graphics.
“Collect power-ups, discover new abilities and evolve your character into a force of destruction as you explore an original story set in the world of Orson Scott Card’s best-selling novel, Empire.
“Shadow Complex marries the quality and depth of a full retail title with the accessibility you love, exclusively on Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE Arcade.”
[UPDATE] Joystiq posted a video. It’s after the break.
