Jaffe: Twisted Metal Nearing Alpha Development Stage

Ever since exploding onto the scene at E3, Eat Sleep Play has been mostly quiet concerning their current promising project, Twisted Metal.

Even head honcho David Jaffe, who is usually relatively chatty in regards to his blog and Twitter, hasn't offered much in the way of status updates. But recently, he did mention the game at his personal Twitter page, and it does sound encouraging:

"...All I can say is we're racing towards Alpha, if that helps :)

As most all of you know, we were aware of this title for a good year and a half before it was officially announced, and we can tell you that at the time of our initial interview where they spilled the beans (end of 2008), we were told about early stages of development. If they're nearing Alpha, that's good news...right? Then we've got beta and then we've got a public beta test, yes? Date, please?

From what we've seen so far, they're definitely headed in the right direction.  This might be the very first game I play a lot online, just 'cuz it was always a blast to play with friends in older TM titles.  Who's looking forward to this bad-ass 2011 game?

The date out there right now is March 1, 2011. We'll see if that holds up.

Alpha? If this was a Bethesda game they'd be printing the discs already!

So True bandit, so sadly true. Let's hope the new engine for Elder Scrolls V works out.

I hope they decide to ditch the live action video in the game. It's not 1997.

I see this in the Summer, in time for Ice Cream truck maniaaaaaa!

So good to hear that they're in Alpha already.

Can't wait. I'm hoping Korn, yes Korn the band lends them a song or two for this game.

Man, it's been so long since I've played TM that I'm hoping I still have a Sweet Tooth for it.

That's promising... Now, give me a release date so I can work out if I can get it on release date, or whether I'll still be a few hunrder hours behind on my backlog. Come on Jaffe, more work, less eating, sleeping and playing.
Peace.

"Here it comes the horrifying midnight wagon
Saggin', laggin', dead bodies draggin'
On a piece of string they flop around and fling
Now shut your ass up and let the juggla sing

It's the Insane Clown Posse comin' through
Lookin' for hickies and the prickies and your ass too.

Everybody gets a ride in the ghost car, don't matter who you are. We goin' straight to hell"

Funny how Jaffe was full of tweets and comments up until he announced his own game. Let's see that date if you're so confident.
