'Eat Them!' (PS3) Game Details, Gets Delayed - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 9, 2010 @ 8:45 a.m. PST

Destroy cities, eat people, smash your friends and unleash your beast. Build a unique creature and go on a monster mash. Power your rampaging beast's weapons and abilities by eating the city's inhabitants.

Originally scheduled for Dec. 2010, Eat Them! is now planned for release on PSN somewhere in 2011.

In Eat Them! the player gets to create their own giant monster which they then use to smash, crash and munch their way though the city. The monster is people-powered, so eating folk is a prerequisite of keeping your monster in full-on destruction mode. The game features eye-catching ‘comic-style’ graphics, fully customizable monster creation and lots and lots of smashing things. The player has the option of single-player and split-screen multiplayer, head-to-head and co-operative missions. Eat Them! promises action, mayhem, destruction, humor and, did i mention?…eating people!

So where do the ideas behind Eat Them! come from? FluffyLogic's producer Ana is a big fan of monster movies – the old-school films where a guy in a giant rubber suit goes mad in a model city while the cameras roll…and wanted to be able to do just that… Ana also love comics; from the 50s horror and sci-fi classics to 70s Hammer Horror Fanzines. And finally, the FluffyLogic producer love games that have a strong destructive vibe – the truth is – smashing stuff is fun! She also really, really wanted to be able to eat people….in a friendly, “I’m just a monster, I can’t help it” kind of a way. So we put all that into a digital blender and the result (so far) is Eat Them!
