Everyone’s favorite ankle slashing killer, the voodoo possessed Good Guy doll known as Chucky is one of the only horror icons left untainted from the Hollywood remake machine. It’s been talked about, but nothing has come of it. Perhaps the West coast knows “You Don’t Fuck With Chuck!” Personally, I think we could all go for a little more Chucky in our lives. So, I wouldn’t mind another Chuck flick, reboot or not. While I await on dreams I’ll never see (Luke FACT: dreams I’ll never see by Molly Hatchet tugs my goats, it’s up their in all time fav. songs) there is another avenue in which to get my creepy doll fix – video games.
Game developer TikGames has been developing a game set in the universe where players act as Chucky and “use his full repertoire of stealth and guile to dispatch victims in a multitude of distinctive methods. In the end, it will be up to the player to decide how many (or few) people survive this stealth-action romp.”
Alex Tikhman, co-founder and Vice President of Publishing for TikGames, had this to say about bring the little killer to the little screen:
We’re proud to be able to bring a fan-favorite movie character, such as Chucky, to gaming platforms. Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years and, soon, gamers around the world will be able to enjoy highly-entertaining, interactive, downright gory experiences with this brand.
And just what will the great Charles Lee Ray (aka Chucky) look like?
Get ready to scream…
Hold your breath…
Oh my God! Frightening… for all the wrong reasons. Eh, this does come from TikGames, makers of downloadable content for systems like the Xbox and playstation, along with ios capable games for the ipod/ipad. So, I can’t say the cute simplicity was that much of a surprise. Still, most of the time in horror games, you play as a hero, not the villain. Acting out your serial killer impulses (oh fuck you, we all think up twisted shit) via the joy of gaming will satisfy that dark passenger of yours.
