Xbox 360, PC in for Bloody Good Time
Ubisoft readying downloadable multiplayer shooter from developer of The Ship; game built on Valve's Source engine set for release this fall.
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.
