Oh wow! Splash Damage gets to make its own game instead of pinch hitting on someone else’s title!
Long a fill-in developer on other franchises, Splash Damage is now making Dirty Bomb, a game about mercs who say things like “Ready the $#^#$ up,” and “Trick or treat, mother$^$@$^&#$.”
In all honesty, there’s not much to go on yet. I’m optimistic about the game’s comedic tone, but without seeing any real game footage it’s hard to tell what’ll set this one apart from a legion of other B-tier shooters (a.k.a. anything that isn’t Call of Duty, Counter-Strike, or Battlefield).
Also, they had an Nvidia logo in the trailer at an AMD-sponsored show. I laughed.
