Between Ska Studios' The Dishwasher
last year, this year's I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1N IT!!!1
, and the recent announcement
of Charlie Murder
for Xbox Live Indie Games, the nascent developer has certainly been establishing a name for itself. The game's Facebook page
offers us a first look at the characters and a bit of the gameplay (which seems to be an arcade beat-em' up with punk rockers/zombies), as well as a glimpse into the fictional band's history.
The game's announcement tells us that Charlie Murder
follows the eponymous punk rock band on a side-scrolling journey to find the lead singer's girlfriend, Skelekitten, murdering everything in its path along the way. Ska Studios will be heading to PAX East
and we've been told there's a "good chance" the game will be there, though a release window of "March 2010" means we might even be playing from the comfort of our couches before that.
