87w ago - Beefy Media Executive Producer Adam Boyes has posted up a video announcing that World Gone Sour hits PSN today starring the Sour Patch Kids.
To quote: If you could ask the candy that you eat what its lifelong goals are, what would it say? Would it tell you that it wants to be an astronaut? Drive in the Indy 500? Run a marathon?
Probably not. If you asked a Sour Patch Kid that question, the answer would be this: To make it to the human belly, their sweet rapture.
And that, my friends, is the premise of our new video game World Gone Sour starring the sweet-then-sour candy, Sour Patch Kids.
We took that premise, added Creed Bratton from NBC's "The Office" as our "sometimes sweet and sometimes sour" narrator, got Wu-Tang's own Method Man to create a custom song included in the game, and set out to make a ridiculously fun game for you to enjoy.
World Gone Sour is a puzzle platformer made by the incredibly talented team at Playbrains (makers of the PSN-exclusive game Sideway where you play as an inch-high candy in a twisted miniature world where you play through sticky movie theatre floors, across sizzling hamburger grills, through a psychotic doll house, and over razor sharp buzz saws.
