Trenched, Double Fine Productions' co-op third-person action tower defense game (phew!), will be deployed on Xbox Live Arcade this June 22. That should be sufficient enough lead time for you to scavenge the neighbor's trash for bottles to redeem and hit the 1200-point price ($15). If you're curious, that's 300 bottles (at $.05 apiece). Can't redeem bottles in your state? Um, we find putting an extra "tips" jar at the Starbucks counter works too.

Trenched is just the latest salvo in Double Fine's digitally distributed arsenal. The developer previously released the well-received Costume Quest and Stacking. The company is currently working on Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster for Kinect.

Double Fine Productions is proud to announce that TRENCHED will be released on Xbox LIVE Arcade on June 22, 2011. That leaves you with roughly one month's time to get your manly affairs in order. Gather your friends and prepare to enlist in the Mobile Trench Brigade to defend humanity from the Monovision menace!

Brad Muir, Project Lead on TRENCHED, had this to say: "You're probably not even reading this part of the press release right now because we sent a video along with it. And honestly that's fine; the video has all the information you need. Except the price. Oh crap we forgot to put that in the video. Ok I'll just say it right here. It's 1200 Microsoft Points. Did you get that? Maybe we should make that bold if you're going to have it in a quote like this."

Muir's rambling continued: "We're super excited to unleash TRENCHED into the wild. I've always loved co-op games and it's awesome to contribute with a game like this."
