TikGames Announces Chucky Game

Good morning, internet.
Morning! TikGames, makers of uh Country Fair and Cinema Tycoon, have announced they are making a game based on ’80s killer-doll horror franchise, Chucky. “We’re proud to be able to bring a fan-favorite movie character, such as Chucky, to gaming platforms,” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and Vice President of Publishing for TikGames. “Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years and, soon, gamers around the world will be able to enjoy highly-entertaining, interactive, downright gory experiences with this brand.” Really? There are actually Chucky fans demanding a game of their favourite character? Okay. Okay.

It’s described as a “stealth-action romp” and TikGames explain that “Chucky will use his full repertoire of stealth and guile to dispatch victims in a multitude of distinctive methods”. It’s out in the Autumn.

    WHAT. Ok, the enormously lucrative “Chucky fan” demographic that all the publishers are aiming for. I see.

    Facetiousness aside – I have nothing against fans of 80-s B movie horror. And this might even be a good game. I just can’t see this selling enough to recoup development costs.

    • Baboonanza says:

      Now that depends on the development costs, or in other words ‘shoddiness’ of the game.

    2D side-scroller?

      Somewhere in the depths of gaming hell, OCEAN twitches to life and whispers:

      “Movie license..? Make it a side-scroller… THEY MUST ALL BE SIDE-SCROLLERS. BUY! BUY!”

      I might have to avoid RPS until that image drops off the front page, I watched Childs Play when I was much to young :(

    • MajorManiac says:

      Its was on Tele a couple of weeks ago. Its worth re-watching as an adult if you want to dispel childhood nightmares.

      Watching it as an adult, it now comes across as ridiculous and camp.

  6. GreatUncleBaal says:

    Oh God. The mainstream press are going to just explode over this one.

    • Daniel Rivas says:

      Maybe if it’s 1992.

      I’ve never seen a chucky film. Worth watching?

    • godgoo says:

      sarcasm receptor: not firing!

      I also hear they’ve bought the Killer Tomatoes IP.

    • Zogtee says:

      The first one is actually not bad. Sure, it’s a daft story, but they play it totally serious and make it work. Well, it worked back then. I’m not sure how it has aged.

      Now, give me my Hellraiser game.

    • Daniel Rivas says:

      It fired! I just thought it would be better to “play this one straight”.

      Sounds like one to watch with friends, pissed.

    • Zogtee says:

      “Friends to the end! Mwhaha!”

    • BloodPukeSalvation says:

      a hellraiser game you say? hm… ive never even considered that. and i consider myself a fan of the films, at least the first two, and a little of the third. but im trying to think how a hellraiser game could work. it would probably be a survival horror? you can have the cenobites around everywhere, they would loose their value as a horror element. but if you dont have them around too much… what fills the void? they are essentially the primary content of the films, yet over-exposure to the player would cause a reduction in their ability to be horrifying.

      i suppose you could go the cheap route and make it an action adventure where each level boss is a specific cenobite and pinhead is the final boss, with his chains and all. but that would just be the hellraiser theme plugged into a generic game. maybe something like amnesia? focusing more on the mystery of pandora’s box?

      i dont know, is a tough translate. how do you convince the player that tampering with the box is the worst thing they can do when its tampering that lets the entire story come to life. maybe im just blabbing.

      (I’m not sure what Hellraiser even is.)

    • Teddy Leach says:

      Daniel… You need to watch more horror films.

    • skurmedel says:

      Hellraiser is about a man who suffered an accident during his acupuncture treatment.

    • Hellraiserzlo says:

      Now about that movie, the first and second are great, third and fourth are alright, fifth ans sixth are fucking great, anything after that sucks donkey wangs.
      Also license based games are limited so making a horror game a about a license sounds really bad, esp because there is so much info on pinhead the sentinels from the movies.

  7. Telekinesis says:

    “Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years …”

    Uh, we have? Oh PR, you so crazy.

  8. Stense says:

    Chucky really does look like the unholy love child of Boris Johnson and Axl Rose.

    I’ve never seen any of the Chucky films, would they actually hold up to a viewing these days?

    • HopperUK says:

      Yeah, for my money Child’s Play is still worth watching. And they feature the voice work of Brad Dourif who is pretty much my hero.

  9. Ricc says:

    Reminds me of that Chucky mod for San Andreas you posted about. I guess the Gamer / Chucky Fan – Venn diagram has some overlapping parts at least. Still, this sounds ill-conceived. (possible pun possibly intended)

  10. Moni says:

    Staring eyes.

    Actually, it’s more like glaring eye.

  11. Spacewalk says:

    Why not something that translates easier into a game like the Zombie Flesh Eaters’ underwater scene.

  12. fallingmagpie says:

    So….Manhunt with a protagonist who looks like a mutated child. That’ll go down well.

    What’s that, Fox News?

  13. stahlwerk says:

    Isn’t this a bit like this horrible horror-teddy-bear game from a few months ago. The name of which escapes me at the moment, but it looked kinda silly in the bad way.

  14. Eukatheude says:

    YES

  15. Eukatheude says:

    By the way, when are we getting a Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 game?

  16. VelvetFistIronGlove says:

    Chucky Egg?

    ““Fans have been asking for a Chucky game for years…”

    You know, I think this may be the last great lie left in advertising, that we the people are the ones who dictate what products arrive in the marketplace. It’s the kind of utter bullshit that really annoys me, especially as proto-economists always resort to it when defending capitalism.

    Chucky’s day was in the 80’s. The only people keeping it alive are the people who still believe there’s money to be made from it.

    • Ricc says:

      Very true.

    • The Tupper says:

      @Urael: “You know, I think this may be the last great lie left in advertising, that we the people are the ones who dictate what products arrive in the marketplace.”

      Very wise words.

  18. The Tupper says:

    ARGH! It’s TRUE!

    Osama Bin Laden really DID transfer his soul into a Chucky doll! HE’S BAAAACK!

    Just imagine how angry he’ll be NOW?
