Igor, the movie, follows a hunchbacked lab assistant named Igor (voiced by John Cusack) forced to serve a mad scientist while dreaming of one day becoming a notorious mad scientist himself and winning the Evil Science Fair. Other stars contributing their voice talents to the film are Molly Shannon (as Eva), Steve Buscemi (as Scamper), Sean Hayes (as Brain) and Eddie Izzard (as the maniacal Dr. Schadenfreude).
“Igor” is a playfully irreverent comedy with a new twist on the classic evil scien-tist/monster genre and tells the story about an evil scientist’s hunchbacked lab assistant, “Igor”, who has big dreams of becoming an evil scientist in his own right and winning the coveted first place award at the annual Evil Science Fair. But, instead of creating a dan-gerous monster for the competition, Igor creates the amiable Eva instead. His attempts to convince Eva to behave like a real monster lead to numerous entanglements. With a lot of humour involved, both the movie and the games commemorate the monster movie genre of the classic Hollywood era.
In the Wii and PC versions of the game, players have the ability to choose one of the main characters (Igor, Eva, Scamper or Brain) and play either simultaneously or cooperatively with up to four people. They'll be challenged to play within locales from the film, fight enemies and achieve goals that advance them through the storyline.
The NDS version utilizes the stylus to perform movement combinations, combat enemies and solve puzzles. Players can custom build their own monsters to take on puzzle challenges and battle against other mad scientists.
Igor The Game will be available on NDS, Wii and PC in Sept. 2008 (Oct. in Europe).
