It's a good time to be a horror fan gamer! We've recently told you all about such genre video games as CALL OF DUTY: CALL OF THE DEAD, DEAD ISLAND and MORTAL KOMBAT, plus iPhone app games based on SCREAM 4 and EVIL DEAD. But wait - there's more!
While the CHILD'S PLAY remake continues to sit on the back burner, Universal and TikGames are moving forward with a video game based on the series' pint-sized slasher, Chucky! It's rare to find a horror game where you get to be the killer instead of the hero, but that's just what you'll get.
Utilizing an original storyline, players will have the opportunity to play as the killer doll and experience his exploits first hand while extending his gory legacy. True to the nature of the films, Chucky will use his full repertoire of stealth and guile to dispatch victims in a multitude of distinctive methods. In the end, it will be up to the player to decide how many (or few) people survive this stealth-action romp.
TikGames co-founder Alex Tikhman had this to say: "We're proud to be able to bring a fan-favorite movie character, such as Chucky, to gaming platforms. Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years and, soon, gamers around the world will be able to enjoy highly-entertaining, interactive, downright gory experiences with this brand."
The game will be available for download and for the PC. It's due out in the fall. We will definitely keep you updated on this one.
