Journey to the Savage Planet - Developer Interview
Post by Steve Farrelly @ 10:25am 02/12/11 | 11 Comments
If you've been playing games long enough, there's a good chance you remember the crummy Acclaim South Park games (there was even a first-person one using the N64 Turok engine), but if you're a South Park fan, there's a chance you recognise that Matt and Trey are obvious videogame fans, which in turn has probably made you wonder whey there hasn't been a decent South Park game made yet.

Turns out it might finally be happening. Game Informer revealed their January issue cover, which features the South Park crew, while the article to alongside says the new game is being developed by Obsidian and published by THQ, but that the two South Park creators are directly involved with this project.
This ambitious project is a full-scale RPG for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. As the new kid in South Park, it'll be up to you to make friends and defend the town from a wide range of threats. Be sure to check out our January issue for all the details, as well as an interview with Parker and Stone themselves.
You can get a better look at the South Park cover right here. There's also no telling if this is actually THQ's mystery December videogame reveal or, if like we all suspect, it's yet to come and likely to be related to their recently created Montreal studio and their recruitment of Assassin's Creed co-creator, Patrice Desilet. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

The one on the N64 was ok to play as a once off but it was pretty easy from memory. I was hoping that South Park towerD game released on xbox live would hit PSN eventually but I guess that's not to be.

THQ is pretty much the new Acclaim.

Hold on, Obsidian? Well maybe it will just be an ambitious but very buggy and broken game instead of f*****g terrible.

They also made Alpha Protocol which was massively underrated.
