The Watchmen comic book series is hitting the silver screen in early 2009. At its side will be a videogame that puts players inside the alternate world where superheroes are real and vigilantism is a way of life. Just like the original graphic novel bucked trends, so will this game. Rather than looking to grab eyes on the store shelves when the blockbuster movie hits theaters, Watchmen is taking the digital distribution route through a series of episodic downloads.
And though you might be used to downloadable games having visuals a step below what's expected out of a modern console, that won't be the case with this brawler.
