160w ago - Today Fluffy Logic Producer Ana Kronschnabl has announced that Eat Them is coming soon to PSN for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: We're here to blog about our new title every two weeks, with a developer diary charting progress of the game from now until you're sick of hearing from us
You may, or may not, know that we demo-ed our new exclusive PlayStation 3 game for the PlayStation Network, 'Eat Them!' at E3 in June. In Eat Them! the player gets to create their own giant monster which they then use to smash, crash and munch their way though the city.
The monster is people-powered, so eating folk is a prerequisite of keeping your monster in full-on destruction mode. The game features eye-catching 'comic-style' graphics, fully customisable monster creation and lots and lots of smashing things.
The player has the option of single-player and split-screen multiplayer, head-to-head and co-operative missions. Eat Them! promises action, mayhem, destruction, humour and, did I mention?... eating people! The game is scheduled for release this winter.
So where do the ideas behind Eat Them! come from? I am a big fan of monster movies - the old-school films where a guy in a giant rubber suit goes mad in a model city while the cameras roll... I wanted to be able to do just that... I also love comics; from the 50s horror and sci-fi classics to 70s Hammer Horror Fanzines.
And finally, I love games that have a strong destructive vibe - the truth is - smashing stuff is fun! I also really, really wanted to be able to eat people... in a friendly, "I'm just a monster, I can't help it" kind of a way.
So we put all that into a digital blender and the result (so far) is Eat Them!
So I hope you'll join us over the next few months as we share with you the process of game development from here to release.
