Boondock Saints Game Coming

Fans of 1999's cult violence and crime movie Boondock Saints are in luck: A video game adaptation of the film is coming out. The game is in development at smaller developer Critical Mass Interactive and the cast from the Boondock Saints films will be hosting a panel at SXSW next month.

I spoke to Critical Mass president and CEO Matt Scibilia about they game, and while he says the company is keeping things a bit mysterious for the time being, he did give me a few details of what we can expect.

According to Scibilia, Boondock Saints: The Game will be a "full-on co-op shooter," and is being developed for the PC and Xbox 360, with the ability to go to PS3. While the game is in too early of a stage to know for sure, Scibilia would like it to come out as a full retail release, although it might come out in episodic downloadable form.

"We don't want to do a crap-ass franchise game," Scibilia said. "We're staying true to the content. We're looking to expand the story, not just retell the franchise."

"The Boondock Saints characters are so strong -- the banter, the relationships between Rocco and the brothers, the Catholicism, that will all be featured in the game," Scibilia said. Critical Mass is planning a motion comic to accompany the game as well.

Critical Mass Interactive is planning to show the game off to the press at behind-closed-doors events at PAX East this year, and are planning a wider reveal of the game at E3. We'll be there, and we'll make sure to check it out and let you know how it's looking.
