Square Enix Announces ScaryGirl

I imagine graphic novel fans are probably excited.

Today, Square Enix has announced ScaryGirl, a new action/platformer based on Nathan Jurevicius' critically acclaimed graphic novel of the same name.

Developed by TikGames, the title is basically done. It'll be available on the Xbox Live Arcade on January 18 and a week later on the PlayStation Network. "ScaryGirl" was the winner of the 2009 Aurealis Award for Best Illustrated Book/Graphic Novel, and puts us in charge of an abandoned child with a tentacle arm who likes to dress as a pirate. ...yeah, see? Scary. A strange man haunts her dreams and she sets out to discover that man; along the way, she'll encounter many dangers, and that tentacle arm will prove useful...

Recognizable faces from the graphic novel, including Blister the giant octopus and Bunniguru, the mysterious kung-fu rabbit, will be featured. The enemies are cute yet deadly; there are the hedgehogs in Owl Woods, the violent Goat Clan in Old Man Mountains, Hairclump spiders in Stinky Swamp, and the "clueless crossing guards around Bad Town." Quite the assortment of baddies.

We're definitely hoping for a downloadable winner. Hey, does anyone remember that kid series "Bunnicula?"  I read 'em a long time ago.

They're just publishing this one. TikGames has already finished it.

If the game is good, then more power to them. Square has always done things other than Final Fantasy and if those other games are going to be of higher quality, then let them focus on those.

No-one played the PS Mini of this then?
This looks like a higher res version. Was pretty in depth for a mini.

HAH! We were talking about Bunnicula just before Christmas. I wanted to buy those books for my nephew but could not find them. I think I read those like 15 years ago when I was in Grade 1.

Anyway, this game looks like it might help out Sqaure Enix somewhat.

Yes to white vegetables... but as for Scarygirl,it seems to lack the definative edge I look for in my games. Still, it may have some worth, but I'll wait till I see some of the finished product before I even consider adding it to the list.

If the female isn't old and attractive enough to accept the D, then I am not interested
