Repent! The Apocalypsegeddon Has Arrived
Imagine stepping out into your world. Everything is completely fine – except the demons apparently crashed a cab into the donut shop, your friend is an 800 year old sorcerer who works in the PR department, and you’re in constant fear of a naked bird-man pooping on your head. Oh, and your roommate’s a zombie. You should probably keep your eye on that weed in your yard, too. It’s starting to grow fangs.
Normally we would be quite disturbed by these unusual little facts. Some of us may resort to permanent agoraphobia or sleeping with a shotgun, a cross and weed killer under our pillows. But this is completely normal for the people living in the world of Comedy Central’s Ugly Americans, and, just as luck has it, gamers can now experience what that particular flavor of insanity tastes like. Earlier today, Comedy Central and 345 Games announced the launch of Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon on PSN and will hit Xbox LIVE tomorrow for a retail price of $9.99 (800 MSP). Developed by Backbone Entertainment, Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon is a four player co-op twinstick shooter featuring characters Mark, Callie, Grimes and more.
“Today, gamers will get their own chance to see what everyone was raving about at PAX recently who played this game,” said Dan Yang, general manager, 345 Games. “It’s been a long but extremely rewarding process working with the show’s talented staff and our wonderful development team, but I’m unbelievably excited that we’re here at the finish line and people can share in this hilarious and addictive experience we’ve worked so hard to create.”
Avatar items based on the show are available on XBLA tomorrow. The items in the collection rage between 160 and 400 MS points.
