Sin City becomes a game to kill for


Red Mile Entertainment, creators of GripShift, Equestrian Challenge, and, err, the upcoming Jackass game, has announced a multi-year license agreement to develop and publish games based on Frank Miller's Sin City. It won't be the first time the neo noir series finds itself as the inspiration for another entertainment medium -- the graphic novels spawned a successful film adaptation in 2005, with plans for a sequel already in the works.

Red Mile's CEO, Chester Aldridge, notes that the developer is "enthusiastic about working with Frank Miller to create a franchise that is worthy of this great property." He reckons Sin City will make for an outstanding game due to its "crime noir settings, richly detailed characters, hyper-real action sequences, and engaging stories," or just about everything you've never seen in a Red Mile game.

Let's give them a chance, though -- Frank Miller certainly is when he describes the transition to games as "very exciting." He goes on to praise the Red Mile team for its dedication in "creating Sin City video games that will remain true to Sin City as I've always seen it." So, full of shadows and dollar signs, then?
