Following in the long and proud (?) tradition set by classics such as Cool Spot, Chester Cheetah: Wild Wild Quest, and most recently the XBLA Doritos duo: Crash Course and Harm’s Way, it looks like Sour Patch Kids will be using consoles to sell snacks. We’ve spotted what could be evidence of World Gone Sour on a Sour Patch Facebook page. While there, make sure to check out Method Man’s tribute to the tangy sweets. The video and photo found on the page vaguely describes World Gone Sour “a sour then sweet game headed to a console near you.” Given the track record of adver-games this generation, something tells us World Gone Sour will be a downloadable title that will most likely show up on XBLA, though we have nothing that confirms a distribution method as of yet. Stay tuned to XBLAFans.com for more details on World Gone Sour as they emerge.
Harm’s Way was created by Justin Carpenter, developed by BongFish, and published Doritos/Microsoft Game Studios. Doritos Crash Course was developed by Wanako Studios, and published by Doritos/Microsoft Game Studios. They were released 12/8/10 on the XBLA Marketplace for $0.00
Every year we seem to get at least one free XBLA game. First it was Yaris, then Undertow, and then last year Doritos launched a game titled Dash of Destruction. It wasn’t the best game, but it was free and pretty fun. That was about a year ago, this year things have changed. Focusing on releasing quality games we get two titles for the Unlock Xbox contest, and both are definitely above the bar set by their predecessors.
