First look and video of Wideload's Hail to the Chimp

Having not heard an awful lot from Wideload since they announced it back in February, 1UP's sudden coverage of Hail to the Chimp is definitely a welcome surprise, since now we don't have to wait until Gamecock's EIEIO party to check it out. Best described as Animal Farm meets Power Stone, the developers behind Stubbs the Zombie have set out to create the party game for the next generation.

"I think it started off being called Happy Fun Easy Party... Party," claims Hail to the Chimp writer, Matt Soell.

Set in a smarmy political climate, Wideload is hoping to get Hail to the Chimp out on shelves during the 2008 presidential elections.
