The Gunstringer Rides into Xbox Live Arcade on Kinect

Go bang bang, pew pew
So far, every one of the Kinect games released has been disc only, but 'Splosion Man developer Twisted Pixel has just announced the first Kinect game for Xbox Live Arcade: The Gunstringer, and calling it "unique" doesn't quite fit the bill.
A mix between third-person shooter and 2D platformer, you control The Gunstringer, a Sheriff who's also a puppet. You control his actions with one hand one the virtual strings, making him jump and move with one hand while aiming and shooting with the other. As you'd expect from Twisted Pixel, the game has its own unique graphical style and looks set to be rather unlike anything on Kinect, or anything else.
The announcement trailer below should give you a good idea of what to expect from Kinect's first shooter (Harry Potter doesn't count.)
