Many genius ideas evolve from old classics. Take Sour Patch Kids for example, someone decided that Gummy Bears were good, but what if we put a little bit of sour sugar coating on them? The result was an instant iconic snack.
Admit it, you have played with your Gummy Bears and Sour Patch Kids. I would bet that we all have, at one point or another, and that is okay. I have pit the bears against the evil kids from the sour patch. As damage was inflicted, I took a bite severing an arm, a leg, or instant decapitation. Of course I don’t do that anymore…grown up rules frown upon such behavior.
Forget Grown up rules, on April 10th, we can now play World Gone Sour on the PlayStation Network ($4.99) and Xbox Live Arcade (400 Microsoft Points) on April 11th. The games soundtrack features artists such as Method Man and celebrity narrations by Creed Barton.
The plot is described below:
“Based on the popular Sour Then Sweet® candy Sour Patch Kids®, World Gone Sour takes players on a journey from the perspective of a lost piece of candy finding its way to its ultimate destination – the human stomach. Gamers take on the role of a miniature Sour Patch Kid in a stylized human-sized world, guiding the hero through unique locations such as the sticky floors of a movie theater and a spooky shack. Players will need to use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving to negotiate and overcome larger than life obstacles.”
What are your thoughts? Will this game decay into obscurity like a bad cavity? Or will this adventure grab hit the sweet spot and calm that craving for our sour and sweet friends?
