There’s been a flood of games recently based on movies from the 80s and 90s, such as Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and Jurassic Park. And now TikGames have announced they are currently developing a game based on a film franchise that has never been adapted to this medium: Chucky.

The game will be released onto PC and console for digital distribution in fall (September/October/November), and will allow players to control the murderous doll on one of his rampages, following an original storyline and using a creative set of methods to stealthily murder the probably-undeserving victims.

The developers state that “in the end, it will be up to the player to decide how many (or few) people survive this stealth-action romp.” This may be nothing more than creative publicity speak, but it hints at something more interesting than simply murdering everyone in sight. This is pure conjecture, but maybe it will be a stealth game in the vein of Hitman, giving players multiple murder methods to explore in each situation, including not killing them at all. This could make it an interesting title, if it avoids the usual pitfalls of licensed games.

    Movies -> games and games -> movies never go well most of the time. I don’t know how creative they got in making this game. I can’t think of any way someone would enjoy this game. Stealth action? Nothing can beat Hitman and Splinter in that category. This seems more like for the fans. Loved the movie, not really interested in the game to be honest. And November release, oh that’s where BF3 and COD series comes out. Bad time to release your title.

    Generally games based on movies end up getting rushed to coincide with a movie release. And since this doesn’t seem to be the case here, it might actually be pretty good.
    Heck I don’t even care if it’s particularly crappy. I totally want to sneak around killing people as Chuckie. I just wonder if they are going to go in the realm of the first 3 movies and have Chuckie be more scary/menacing or they are going to follow the more recent route and make it more humorous. Either way I want to play!

  • I’d have to agree with both of you there. With few exceptions, licensed games tend to rely on the appeal of the existing franchise rather than build interesting gameplay mechanics.

    That said, a Chucky game might be fun, if done right. Of course, it could also be terrible. For now, I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. Keep an open mind, and don’t jump to any conclusions till you get you hands on it.
