Capcom just announced a Sour Patch Kids tie-in game for PSN, XBLA, and PC. You know, Sour Patch Kids. The candy.
World Gone Sour is the adventure of a lost Sour Patch Kid running and jumping its way from a movie theater's sticky, filthy floor, past the concession stand, and out into the world as it seeks its home in a candy lover's stomach. Yes, this is a game in which the goal -- the ideal situation -- is a person accidentally ingesting candy that's been on the floor of a movie theater. This is a game concept that Sour Patch marketing believed would increase the appeal of the candy. That's what is happening here.
But wait! Your $4.99 doesn't just get you a protracted, off-putting Sour Patch ad. World Gone Sour also includes that new Method Man jam, "World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids)," and Creed Bratton, whom you know as Creed from The Office, narrating your heroic journey.
We suppose it's only appropriate that a licensed game based on candy would come from the developer of Yo! Noid and The California Raisins.
