[Wii] Spyborgs Announced

Those of you that usually read my Blog know that I usually don't post about a game announcement unless it really means something to me. Well, it does.

Two ex-Insomniac Games employees that were also Forum admins back in the days, are involved in the project. Mike "dodger" Stout got in Bionic Games as a Creative Director on an unannouced project... that was until earlier today. We finally get to see Mike's little "baby".

Tony "Mr. Sunshine" Garcia also got in this project... but his origins are a lot darker, downright mysterious, and sometimes edging on gory. His programming abilities are out of this world, so it probably has something to do with that.

Spyborgs is a Wii exclusive action game that resembles a Saturday morning (or Adult Swim) cartoon, with mini-games as commercial breaks. We can expect "tongue-in-cheek" and offbeat humor.

The game features five playable characters, each with their own unique traits. "Bionic Games hopes that their Wii remote waggler will provide players with a dynamic and fresh gaming experience like no other."
If I had to describe the game in as few words as possible, I would use the words, "Volcano of Fun" --- Tony Garcia
