The Unlikely Legend Of Rusty Pup Announced By Chris Seavor


Following on the heels of Parashoot Stan, Chris Seavor announced today that he and his team at Gory Detail Limited will be releasing their next game for the Wii U and 3DS eShops. Titled The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, the game stars a pup in a 2D platforming adventure. Here’s what Chris had to say about the game…

“The character is becoming the important thing. You’re caring about this character. There are added elements which make it quite like a virtual pet game, a nurture game — you’ve got this character you want to keep alive. Rather than you’re controlling him to get from A to B, you’re controlling everything else to make sure that he doesn’t die. Within that framework, you’ve got your traditional kind of gameplay — platforms that move, monsters that get out of the way, monsters which don’t — but Rusty always has a relationship with you. You’re the narrator. So in that way, it’s like a God game — it’s not strictly a God game, but it’s got narration and this mysterious figure — which is you. I’m going to do some little twists and turns with the logic of the story, so there’s a reason for the character to be there. It’s not like Angry Birds or Jetpack Joyride — there’s a reason this character is here. He just doesn’t seem to know why.”
