'Dead Head Fred' (PSP) Announced

by Rainier on May 4, 2006 @ 7:13 a.m. PDT

Dead Head Fred draws players into an original alternative universe as they embark on a quest for vengeance to solve their own murder by using the decapitated heads of enemies to battle through environments designed to showcase each headÂ’s unique abilities.

"D3PA's focus is to find great intellectual properties that have unique gameplay elements, distinctive characters and environments that draw players into the game-world," said Brian Christian, vice president of product development, D3PA. "Vicious Cycle has combined their creativity and cutting-edge technology so that Dead Head Fred delivers on all three counts and it has twisted humor that gamers are going to enjoy."

"Vicious Cycle has a great working relationship with the team at D3PA and we are pleased to be collaborating with them on Dead Head Fred," said Eric Peterson, president at Vicious Cycle. "D3PA has given us the time and freedom to create a game that will introduce compelling gameplay mechanics to the PSP system using the Vicious Engine. The combination of a completely original IP with our cutting-edge technology will deliver a game unlike anything before on the PSP system."

In Dead Head Fred, players take on the persona of private detective Fred Neuman. Savagely murdered and then resurrected in a bizarre scientific experiment, Fred is without his memory or his head! The game immerses players in the action with the most revolutionary camera to date on a handheld device as they collect, upgrade and switch heads on the fly to strategically fight malformed mutants, ghoulish gangsters, and maniacal mob bosses in a unique and compelling story of revenge and redemption.

Created specifically for the PSP by developer Vicious Cycle, Dead Head Fred is anticipated for release in Q1 2007.
