Metalocalypse: Dethgame [PS3 X360 – Cancelled]

Metalocalypse: Dethgame is a cancelled action game / beat ’em up that was in development by Frozen Codebase and it would have been published by Konami for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade and the Playstation 3 PSN download service. As we can read on Wikipedia, Metalocalypse is an American animated television series, which was created by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, and premiered in 2006 on Adult Swim.

In the game players would have played as one of the band’s roadies, and the game was to be set in Mordhaus, where the player would fight mutant fans. The game would have included music taken from Dethklok’s albums. The game has been canceled, because “the creative direction of the game would not live up to the high standards…set for the project”.

As we can read on IGN:

You play as a nameless Klokateer, a minion of sorts for Metalocalypse, and the game opens with you standing in front of a urinal and peeing. Using the left analog stick, you can aim your pee and urinate to the left and right. This doesn’t actually do anything or even leave yellow puddles on the ground, but that’s how it starts. After you finish and zip up, which happens automatically after a while, you wonder through the barracks and into a training room where you start beating up punkster guys and gals. And that’s pretty much the entire game.

On July 28, 2010 (a year and 8 days after its announcement) announced the cancellation of  Metalocalypse: Dethgame

“Konami has confirmed to IGN it has parted ways with Cartoon Network regarding Metalocalypse: Dethgame, a downloadable title based off the Adult Swim series that was previously set for release this year.

A little while later, Cartoon Network issued this statement:

Cartoon Network Enterprises has indeed ended production on the previously-announced Metalocalypse: The Dethgame. After a lot of time and work, together with Konami, the decision was made that the creative direction of the game would not live up to the high standards we had set for the project and we did not want to release a less than outstanding game.

In other words… “It sucked, we aren’t releasing it.”

    That’s too bad. Metalocalypse is such an awesome show. Maybe the show will get another game now that Titmouse (the company that makes Metalocalypse) announced a gaming branch. Thanks for the info on this! Didn’t even know it was in development.

  2. ForWhomTheBellTolls

    Yay! It’s up!

    @Dr. Swank: It was too bad actually, I like the show too :D. The game itself didn’t look too good though. But nice add-on with the gaming branch info! I didn’t know about that. Glad you liked it!
