Trash TV is a one- or two-player puzzle platformer where one controls a television that uses dozens of different guns to escape a recycling plant, while fighting against heaps of tech rejects.
The demo shows a handful of challenges that require a timed rocket launcher with blinding and player-propelling explosions. These create a screen-disrupting effect that I imagine would be frustrating if playing cooperatively. However, the aesthetics, HyperDuck SoundWorks soundtrack, and variety of puzzles are enough to play further solo.
Being a finalist in Intel's Level Up 2011 contest earned Trash TV's demo a spot on Steam. Developer Lawrence Russell says he will have to apply again to Steam to have the full game added, but it's scheduled for Windows and Xbox 360 according to its TIGSource devlog.
Go ahead and see what you think of the Trash TV demo. Warning: it's quite short. For those experiencing an error trying to play, Russell suggested this dependency install.
