Staying Dry In A WET World Is Harder Than You Think
PLANET GRIFFIN bounces back with yet another glimpse into the world of what's coming soon--- and from the innovative company of Artificial Mind and Movement (A2M) and SIERRA comes WET, a unique action/adventure title that I've been following since late 2007. After several development hang ups, it looks as though the gang is finally on track to a definite release this fall, and looking at the gameplay, I can only say WOW! I can definitely say that this title is a third person unlike any other I've seen in style, design, and gameplay! Keep a towel handy to wipe the continuous stream of sweat from your brow...
WET is a retro stylized 3rd person actioner that revolves around RUBI MALONE (voiced by Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku), a wetworks op-for-hire, who lives by the blast of her dual six-shooters and the hard edge of her samurai sword. Propelled by an original 70's soundtrack and a grindhouse visual (they even utilize the voice pitchman that imitates the legendary ADOLPH CAESAR), Rubi travels the (under)world on a payback mission, asailled by double crosses at every turn! A sure fire hit with the gaming crowd as well as the Grindhouse Goodfellas if they get it right! With this, plus a bizarre mix of humor and violence mixed in, all I can say is start saving your pennies now kids!
