Back in April 2011, MTV Networks created 345 Games to create gaming products tied to shows on Comedy Central and Spike TV. It was said they would be working closely with the creative element of the shows, whose IP they will “gamify.”
Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon is the first Comedy Central branded title, only preceded by a Deadliest Warrior sequel. 345 is wasting no time getting titles to market.
“The time has come to pound the pavement and save the earth from impending doom! 345 Games, the video gaming arm of COMEDY CENTRAL and Spike TV, announced today that its upcoming shooter “Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon” will be launching for PlayStation®Network on August 30
and for Xbox LIVE®Arcade August 31 for a retail price of $9.99. Published by COMEDY CENTRAL Games and developed by Backbone Entertainment, this hilarious game unites the humor and spirit of the popular animated comedy-horror series “Ugly Americans” with classic and addictive dual analog shooting gameplay. The game features all of the voice actors from the show, a script penned by the show writers and original characters created by the show creator Devin Clark.”
“With four-player top-down co-op gameplay that hearkens back to such classics as Gauntlet and Robotron, “Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon” features four playable characters, each with their own unique abilities, weapons and strengths. Players must comb the streets of New York City and pacify raving demons, delinquent man birds and zombies by lactating fire or hurling wacky objects like flying demon skulls, fish, baseballs and wrenches. Investigate case files from the Department of Integration and battle devastating and distinctive bosses at the end of each mission, each bringing you one step closer to finding out who is trying to bring about the end of days!”
