When Vivendi Games and Activision merged, people were understandably concerned about the future of games like Ghostbusters, Brutal Legend and 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. But there was another game in publishing limbo: A2M's Wet. Although it didn't have the installed fanbase of the above three titles and despite that it doesn't have a publisher yet, Wet sounds pretty cool and its developers say it will be ready to come out in 2009.
Wet is a PS3 and 360 shooter that stars Rubi, a badass chick who lives in a junkyard and destroys dudes with a variety of weapons. The goal of the developers, however, was to make an "acrobatic shooter" in which gunplay and graceful moves are combined.
"With one arm Rubi automatically targets the biggest threat, and with the other you can free aim,” David Lightbrown, senior artistic technical director, explains. “When you start to play you might rely on the auto lock-on while performing acrobatic moves, but as you get more comfortable with it you can start to pick off enemies, performing headshots or disarming them; after all, Rubi has two arms, so she might as well use them.”
Sounds intriguing. I hope this game sees the light of day and is half as awesome as the concept!
