Upon its maiden voyage, Outerlight's 2007 debut The Ship received critical praise for its unique take on multiplayer shooters, where each person on a cruise ship has to hunt a specific passenger while avoiding his or her own stalker. The developer's long-awaited follow-up will soon see the light of day, as Ubisoft today announced that it will release Outerlight's Bloody Good Time for Xbox Live Arcade and Steam this fall.
Billed as a new intellectual property, Bloody Good Time takes place on a variety of movie sets, with environments like a beach house or a Las Vegas hotel. The game will see up to eight players slaughtering each other in those locales with traditional weapons (guns) and more unique fare (an exploding remote-controlled rodent). The players themselves will also stand out, with Ubisoft describing them as B-movie archetypes like "the bikini beach babe, the creepy clown, and the super jock."
Like The Ship, Bloody Good Time will run on Valve's Source engine. Source has powered a number of successful interpretations of the first-person shooter genre, including Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Counter-Strike: Source.
