Like good bloggers, we masked our complete lack of excitement for a new Splatterhouse
in a milky coating of sarcastic enthusiasm. But after seeing the above character model for the game's (we're betting anti-)hero Rick Taylor ... we kind of wish we'd laid it on a bit thicker. To remove our remaining layers of subtlety: We're saying it looks bad, or, at the very least, underwhelming.
But there, in the distance, is that a ray of hope? Indeed it is, friends, because we also learned today that Splatterhouse
is being created by bottleRocket, a developer founded by the team that made the excellent Mark of Kri
and sequel Rise of the Kasai
. We're still not crazy about the license, but we're definitely more intrigued than we were a few minutes ago.
