Grasshopper's Suda on Lollipop Chainsaw and the new media landscape

One can tell Lollipop Chainsaw is a Grasshopper Manufacture game within just a few minutes, from its heroine -- a chainsaw-swinging cheerleader cliche -- to its exaggerated aesthetic, equal parts zombie gruesome and bubblegum pop.

The story, though, is written by screenwriter James Gunn (Dawn of the Dead, Slither). The game's creative director, edgy game icon Goichi "Suda51" Suda, says the he and Gunn were excited to learn they were mutual fans of one another's work; it was the aesthetics of over-the-top horror films that inspired Lollipop Chainsaw.

The experience of working on the game, which is now slated to launch in mid-June after a few date slips, was Suda's first time working with someone from the film world, he tells Gamasutra. (Grasshopper Manufacture, Industry, Lollipop Chainsaw, PS3, SUDA51, Xbox 360)
