Escape from Bug Island is a 3rd person survival-horror game that takes a quirky, creepy and over-the-top journey onto an island filled with giant evil insects and mutant creatures. Play as Ray and get physical – use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to shake off and blast massive bugs as well as evade nasty attacks and clingy creatures – in an attempt to rescue your best friend Mike and secret love Michelle. Armed only with a flashlight and a few simple weapons, players start the game alone in a dark fog-covered forest trying desperately to figure out where everyone has disappeared to. When there is nowhere else to turn, take advantage of the "Cave of Time" and travel back to save loved ones. Make sure to explore every dark nook and cranny and uncover the mystery that is Beelzebub Island – called by those who know and fear it – BUG ISLAND.
"Escape From Bug Island will be appreciated by even the biggest entomophobes," says Matt Gorman, Marketing Director at Eidos North America. "From massive spiders to huge moths to clingy lizard-women this game offers something even more gross around every corner. As much fun as it is creepy, this game really offers Wii gamers an exterminating experience."
Developed by Spike Co., Ltd. in Japan, Escape from Bug Island's control system takes advantage of everything the Wii has to offer and brings a spine-chilling workout from start to finish. Offering hundreds of enemies to stomp on, squash, smash, and blow up and a vast array of weapons to keep you safe, Escape from Bug Island is an adventure that is a tribute to the classic campy B-horror movie.
Escape from Bug Island, rated M for Mature, will be available in Spring 2007.
