Chucky, a videogame based on the classic Child’s Play horror films from the late 80s/early 90s, has been announced for release on PC and console downloadable platforms (XBLA, PSN and Steam most likely) this Fall. The game is being developed by TikGames (Cinema Tycoon, Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos and Flower Shop: Big City Break).
Utilizing an original storyline, players will have the opportunity to play as the killer doll and experience his exploits first hand while extending his gory legacy. True to the nature of the films, Chucky will use his full repertoire of stealth and guile to dispatch victims in a multitude of distinctive methods. In the end, it will be up to the player to decide how many (or few) people survive this stealth-action romp.
“We’re proud to be able to bring a fan-favorite movie character, such as Chucky, to gaming platforms,” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and Vice President of Publishing for TikGames. “Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years and, soon, gamers around the world will be able to enjoy highly-entertaining, interactive, downright gory experiences with this brand.”
Quite an uhhh, interesting choice for a licensed game. Then again, a new reboot Chucky film, scheduled for release in theaters next year, is in the works so maybe this isn’t a bad time for a Child’s Play videogame, eh.
Here is a fan trailer from the first Chucky film.
