Clive Barker Summoning New Game

The horror master is teaming up with Codemasters to scare the bejeezus out of gamers. Clive Barker's Undying was a critical hit when it arrived back in 2001. Now it looks like the director/author/professional creepy guy is ready to get back into games, as he has apparently struck a deal with Codemasters to develop a new mature-themed game for next-gen consoles and PCs.

According to Reuters, via The Hollywood Reporter, Barker was drawn by a videogame's potential to allow the player to explore many paths in a story, rather than the one path the viewer experiences in a book or movie. Titled Clive Barker's Jericho, the game unfolds in an elaborate quest to reach the innermost sanctum of a place called -- wait for it -- Jericho, where evil incarnate is hangin' out. The player is part of a special forces squad trained in both conventional warfare and the arcane arts.

"There are things in my imagination which I think can only be paintings, things that can only be books, and this thing has to be a game," Barker said. "Is there a movie in it later? Sure. But what it has to be is what it's going to be first, an absolutely killer game."

I'm surprised Ratchet & Clank wasn't on the list. Late Saint's Row games, with more imaginative weapons like the Shark gun and the armchair with guns would fit on a part two list as well

I'm not familiar with Ratchet and Clank (not my sort of game) but I'll add it to the list for part two along with Saint's Row. Thanks for the suggestions :-)

look up resistance fall of man from insomniac as well. there were some interesting weapons for that too

@phoenix
Resistance series 100%. Especially the secondary fires. Auger shields, Bullseye tags, Magnum detonator, Rossmore incindiary, then throw a Hedgehog for good measure. By the time I got to R3 they were onto Atomizers and Mutators. Armory speaks for itself.

Does the unicorn weapon from Red Faction: Armageddon counts?

gleepot1288d ago

Cerebral Bore from Turok 2. Farsight from Perfect Dark.

Thank you to everyone for your excellent suggestions. They have all been added to the list for part two which should be published by the end of the month :-)
