Bloody Good Time Details Spilled By ESRB


imageBack in February, we discovered Ubisoft is developing an Xbox Live Arcade game called where a B-movie director directs actors to kill each other called Bloody Good Time. Thanks to the ESRB, we now know players use barbeque forks and frying pans to do the deed.


That’s the official logo on the right. We dug that up from the European Trademark database. While Ubisoft hasn’t said much about Bloody Good Time leaks keep trickling out like this gameplay heavy ESRB description.


This is a first-person shooter in which players compete in a "kill-or-be-killed"-style TV program. Cartoonlike characters use frying pans, golf clubs, barbeque forks, machine guns, flamethrowers, knives, and swords to kill other actors on the TV/movie sets. Characters are often guided by the instructions and prompting of a TV/movie director. As the characters run around various sets, they are rewarded with notoriety, fame, and points for creative kills. Brightly-colored bloodstains sometimes appear when characters are hit; small bloodstains occasionally appear on floors and walls. Players are also assisted by environmental traps (e.g., electric currents, fiery gas explosions, and movable floors), which can kill several characters at once. Guards will occasionally zap characters with tasers for failing to observe in-game rules, such as refraining from killing innocent or non-targeted characters.


Some female characters are depicted in bikinis, low-cut clothing, bunny outfits, and showgirl costumes that expose a lot of cleavage. A movie set displays a call sheet that details a bedroom scene, with the text "Please Note: As this scene involves nudity, ONLY the involved actors, the assigned camera op and the director should be present." During the course of the game, characters may use toilets and can be seen sitting on toilet bowls as they groan and emit flatulence. Items such as beer bottles, wine bottles, kegs, and tequila appear in the game; players are also able to consume beer. Some dialogue contains language such as "a*s," "damn," and "hell," as well as references to drugs (e.g., "toker," "reefer," "bongwater," and "weed"


Farting, beer drinking, and flamethrowers… in a first person shooter? Bloody Good Time sounds bloody bizarre.
