GDC08: Wideload's Hail to the Chimp bus

When we first heard that the Gamecock published Hail to the Chimp would be showcased on a bus rather than in a booth, we assumed the worst. Even now, given our previous evidence, we aren't ashamed of that assumption. We imagined a bus of debauchery and decadence. A place of foolhardy revelry....

GDC08: Hail to these things

Walking outside of the Moscone Center's West Hall, we were accosted by some costumed monsters -- of course it was Gamecock. That's what they do! This time, the foolishness was taken to the streets in promotion of Hail to the Chimp, Wideload Games's political animal-mascot fighting game. These...

Joystiq hands-on: Hail to the Chimp

Since our first glance of Hail to the Chimp we've been intrigued. The party game for Xbox 360 and PS3 can be best described as "monkeying" the Pixar philosophy, the game looks like it'd be for kids, but there's a bunch of sly jokes in there that adults will get and the gameplay is simple but deep....
