Destroy All Humans!, the highly anticipated new video game from THQ, arrives at retail today for PlayStation2 and Xbox. Inspired by sci-fi B movies of the 40s and 50s, the game offers a bit of a switch, letting players assume the role of an alien scout sent to Earth to pave the way for a devastating extraterrestrial invasion.
Developed by Pandemic Studios, Destroy All Humans! has gamers piloting a flying saucer an patrolling on foot as a trigger-happy, bulb-headed alien named Crypto-137. Players may choose to infiltrate Earthling society using advanced metal powers or simply vaporize them with his awesome arsenal.
“We had so much fun making this game,” comments Pandemic Studios president Josh Resnick. “In between blowing up whole blocks of buildings and buzzing around in our flying saucers, zapping everything in sight, we were probing cows, discovering the secret lusts of 1950s housewives and laughing our heads off.”
Previous Pandemic projects include Full Spectrum Warrior, Star Wars Battlefront and Mercenaries. For more information about the studio, go to www.pandemicstudios.com.
Destroy All Humans! is now available for the suggested retail price of $49.99. Read more about Pandemics work on the critically lauded game in the upcoming August issue of Animation Magazine, coming soon to Barnes & Noble locations.
