LocoCycle is probably the most aptly name ever created. It stars two sentient motorcycles: I.R.I.S., the game's protagonist, and the evil S.P.I.K.E. Well, it also co-stars Pablo, I.R.I.S.'s mechanic. He's the poor chum seen being dragged behind I.R.I.S. in the recent gameplay reveal. The game's two-wheeled stars were brought to life by Austin-based Southern Metal Choppers, along with special effects wizards Legacy Effects. I.R.I.S. (above) weighs in at 600 points and, according to our own Nick Santalego and Perry Jackson, is stunning up-close. Below is S.P.I.K.E., the game's villain. The motorcycles are voiced by gaming personality and journalist Lisa Foiles and the Terminator T-1000 himself, Robert Patrick, respectively.
LocoCycle's beginnings sprang years ago from a simple gag gift. Josh Bear, Creative Director at Twisted Pixel Games, received a copy of the (terrible) movie Torque from the studio's Art Director. For some reason Bear sat through the movie, bad motorcycle fights and all. He had a nightmare that night and awoke the next morning with the initial vision for LocoCycle. Production on the game began roughly nine months ago.
Joe Danger: The Movie, the sequel to last year's Joe Danger: Special Edition (which itself was an update/port of Joe Danger from the PlayStation 3) has gone gold. Developer Hello Games tweeted the good news yesterday, and the studio's Sean Murray further spoke of the game's progress and development with TheSixthAxis. He confirmed this would be the last we would see of Joe. “I’m not going to work on a new Joe Danger game again,” stated Murray, “which is really sad and amazing at the same time.”
The game takes daredevil Joe Danger's antics to the next level. In Joe Danger: The Movie the lovable stuntman takes on Hollywood. He'll ski down a dangerous slope, chase bad guys on his police motorcycle, and even ride a mine cart a la Indiana Jones. We adored the first game, so we're really looking forward to seeing what else Joe gets himself into. Hit the jump for a refresher trailer.
UPDATE: We've received confirmation that Joe Danger: The Movie will launch September 14 for 1200 MSP.
Twisted Pixel, the Austin, TX developer behind hit XBLA titles Ms. Splosion Man and The Gunstringer, today released the first gameplay footage of its next release, Lococycle. The game was first glimpsed in teaser form this past June during Microsoft's pre-E3 2012 media briefing. At the time it was clear that Lococycle was a motorcycle racing game of sorts that featured a motorcycle named I.R.I.S. that appeared to have ridden right off of the set of Tron and onto XBLA. Twisted Pixel released a few scant details at the time betraying I.R.I.S.'s profession (assassin) and skill with weapons and hand-to-hand combat.
Today's footage puts to rest any doubts in the minds of gamers that a motorcycle can in fact be an assassin. The wild video shows I.R.I.S. ripping down the asphalt at a blistering pace while dragging a rider behind her and spraying bullets all over the place. That's not the wild part. Later in the trailer, the motorized killer leaves the confines of the road behind and leaps into the air to in hand-to-hand — or wheel-to-hand, to be more precise — combat against some jetpacking assailants. It looks mighty similar to the type of action game combat that has become commonplace in the years since Devil May Cry introduced it.
