Foul Play hunts some demons… in front of a live studio audience

Mastertronic’s Foul Play sets a demon hunting twosome to task up in light on the grand stage for an oddball adventure that’s heavy on the charm… and the brawling.

Playing as the Victorian daemon-hunter Baron Dashforth, prepare to smash, strike, banish and beat your way through hordes of wildly costumed extras as you recount your incredible life story live on stage – watch awe-inspiring scene changes play out before your eyes, fires will rage, pyramids will rise, castles will crumble, and deadly monstrosities will burst forth… NO expense has been spared in bringing this scarcely believable, but ENTIRELY ACCURATE story to the stage.

THRILL the baying audience with your incredible presence! Perform shattering takedowns, throws and reversals so perfect you’d swear they were choreographed backstage. String together awesome attacks as the Baron, or have a friend join as your loyal companion Scampwick. Electrify the spectators with linked and special attacks – win the audience with flair and showmanship, and use every stage-trick you know to bring the house down.

Prepare for DRAMA as the Baron’s tale unfolds, from the harsh deserts of Cairo, to the shady streets of Victorian London… and beyond. The finest actors and actresses of the day have been employed to ensure the ABSOLUTE authenticity of the story. Prepare to play out the most spectacular and explosive moments of the Baron’s life; improbable beasts, astonishing villainy, and at the heart of it all – the mysterious Foul Play.

I know that was a little long, but it was so awesome I had to print the whole thing. You’re playing as a dude who’s retelling his demon hunting adventures on stage – with actors and in front of a live audience. And everything’s supposed to be choreographed. That’s so wildly original that publisher Devolver Digital and Mastertronic Games seriously have my interest piqued for this one. Just the idea that you have to keep the crowd interested and ‘into’ the performance is fantastic, then add to that that the ‘badguys’ are actually just all actors… I can honestly say I’ve nevr heard of anything like that as a premise for a game and I can’t wait to hear more.

Foul Play “a game of Drama, Suspense, Thrill and above all, Style” is set to debut on the Xbox 360 and PC on September 18th. We’ll have plenty more about this very interesting little title as soon as we get it.
