The fellows and fellowettes at Monolith Productions are a truly hilarious bunch, taking any opportunity they can to crack wise and give us all a good laugh.
Even the developer’s most serious titles, like FEAR, included a few great gags to elicit a grin or two, while previous titles like No One Lives Forever and Shogo contained had a wit and charm still unmatched in videogames.
The team’s latest title, Gotham City Impostors, is their most raucous and hilarious game to date, and it’s about to get even more out of control with the upcoming Rodeo Pirate Pack!
In addition to the free content update that arrived for Gotham City Impostors recently, Monolith will soon be releasing the Rodeo Pirate Pack as a paid bit of downloadable content - this is what you’ll get:
Gotham City Impostors: Rodeo Pirate Pack:
- New Weapon: The Boarding Party! A blunderbuss that fires scalp-seeking parrots. Once these parrots land on a foe they deal periodic damage and block their victim’s vision!
- New Support item: The Conch! This powerful shell will foretell the end of your enemies, as one blast from its powerful bowels will interrupt any active gadget, push enemies back to give you breathing room, and even do a little bit of damage.
- New Fun Fact: Rummy! This new Fun Fact will fill your #2 slot, and prevents you from being frozen, blocks parrot attacks, and stops conch stuns. (Oh, and it’ll also protect you from cold damage.)
- New Costumes: The Rodeo and Pirate Costumes are yours to adorn your Impostor with. Show the world your inner scurvy dog, or rodeo clown!
- new Voice: The Pirate voice is up for grabs! Use your new found knowledge of the high seas to berate all those that stand against you, and your swashbuckling ways.
- New Paint Job: The Pizza Paint Job is here for you to slather all over your favorite (and non-favorite) weapons! Give your foes a hot slice of death with this fresh new look.
Before you go, however, you must watch this truly hilarious video made by Monolith to promote the new content:
