G.U.T.S - a retro body based shooter [release Tue 10th Nov]



On behalf of the glorious Slabovian nation may I proudly present information on the forthcoming iPhone classic G.U.T.S?

Slabovia, the last communist dictatorship in Europe, has announced details of its first state-mandated iPhone title. GUTS employs cutting-edge 8-bit game design principles to reconstruct the miraculous story of a desperate medical mission to save General Schmerdiakov, Slabovia’s cruel yet loveable dictator.

Taking the form of 11 levels, each taking place in a different part of the general’s body, GUTS re-tells the spectacular success of two Slabovian citizens shrunk to microscopic size in order to combat The General’s wide range of ailments from within – largely owing to unhealthy living and extreme old age. Players take the role of Kierky and Neitzche as they fantastically voyage through organs and blood vessels to save Slabovia’s glorious leader.

Designed and created in cooperation with Tag Games, a first for the state of Slabovia, GUTS will also feature a rousing 8-bit soundtrack from reknowned producer and DJ Si Begg (in conjunction with Slabovia’s very own 8-bit Orchestra).

Priced at £1.79/$2.99 GUTS will be available from the App Store on the 27th October 2009.

General Schmerdiakov says: “Buy this game. Enjoy this game. Or be punished.”

Shouldn't that be "poo-nished"? Kind of a double play on words for the game's topic and also the general's accent.

This looks like it might make a good tie-in with the Grossology exhibit and books.

Inside a Tyrant...

I wonder what his heart will look like? Do dictators have hearts?

I can indeed confirm the presence of "poo" in the game... in fact as you can see its a big steaming pile of poo!

Looking good for a launch date of 27th of this month at a bargain £1.79/$2.99. If you like retro games with a sense of humour and style you'll love this one.
