During the 90s it wasn’t uncommon to see video games based on mainstream franchises or products being released, with McDonald’s Treasure Land Adventure on the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis being one of the more well-known examples of this trend.
Fast forward to 2012 and ‘World Gone Sour’ represents the latest game based on a famous brand. This puzzle platformer for PSN and XBLA gets its inspiration from the Sour Patch Kids candy that is apparently a favourite for North American moviegoers.
Capcom is serving as the game’s publisher and will release it on April 10th for the PlayStation Network and April 11th for Xbox LIVE Arcade. World Gone Sour will cost $4.99 or 400 Microsoft Points depending on your choice of platform.
Here’s some more information about the game taken from Capcom’s press release:
“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 theatre 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.
“The console versions will allow for two friends to team up for local co-op play and will include support for global leaderboards, as well as Microsoft Achievements and PlayStation® trophies. World Gone Sour will be available on PlayStation Network for $4.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 400 Microsoft Points.
“In addition, the game will feature the recently released “World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids)” track from Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist Method Man. The journey of the Sour Patch Kids will include additional star personality with cheeky narrations by actor Creed Bratton (“The Office”), who will provide snack-sized quips and tidbits throughout the game.”
