We fear this may be the beginning of an epic battle (think Pirates vs. Ninjas), but let’s just say that Global Agenda’s No Elves trailer fires the first salvo in the great Elves vs. Snipers war.

Trailer: Edge of Twilight

Trailer: Edge of Twilight

While there’s no gameplay in this Edge of Twilight trailer, we like its ominous, intensely atmospheric feel; it’s a third-person steampunk fantasy platformer due out third quarter 2009.
