Retro-styled indie game puts a humorous spin on the weird and wacky world of professional wrestling

Quote:
NEW YORK - February 29, 2012 - Celebrate leap year the old-school way with Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass, a retro-styled point and click adventure just released by Wadjet Eye Games. A unique comedy game created by UK-based independent developer Chris Burton, Da New Guys can be downloaded for only $9.99 from http://www.danewguys.com.

With traditional adventure gameplay reminiscent of the LucasArts classics and the fast-paced humor of a Saturday morning cartoon, Da New Guys puts players in the shoes of three questionable wrestlers: Brain (the clueless one), Defender (the intellectual), and Simon (the meathead). When Brain wins the Wrestle Zone's title belt -- quite by accident -- and is promptly kidnapped by a jealous rival, his reluctant teammates set out to save his hide. The quirky adventure that follows features a humorous storyline with an unusual cast of characters, dozens of creative puzzles to solve, and the chance to play as all three New Guys at various points. And don't be fooled by the stylized cartoon artwork: this high-quality indie production also has professional voice acting, an original soundtrack, and in-game achievements linked to unlockable bonus content.

"Wrestling is all about these crazy, larger than life characters, but who are they when the cameras are off? With Da New Guys, I wanted to capture the over-the-top theatrics we see on TV, and then take the wrestlers out of the ring and into the real world," says Chris Burton, the game's indie developer. "These guys are used to solving problems with their fists (and nearby pieces of furniture), but now it's time to use their heads, and sometimes the results are even funnier. Da New Guys is the Saturday morning cartoon that never was -- if you grew up watching TV in the 80s, like I did, you'll feel right at home."

For one more week, Wadjet Eye Games is offering a CD version of the game for $19.99. This limited edition disc release includes a Da New Guys cartoon short, exclusive trading cards, and free shipping within North America(international shipping is just $0.99). Those who order the CD can also download the game for free. After this offer ends on March 7, Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass will only be offered in downloadable format. For more details, visit http://www.danewguys.com/order.

A playable demo that features the first several scenes of the adventure can be downloaded from http://www.danewguys.com/demo.


Happy Gaming!
