Evil Dead: Regeneration comes to consoles everywhere.
17th Apr 05
Evil Dead is heading to the videogame world once again, courtesy of THQ. While not a sequel to any of the actual movies or previous games, Ash’s new adventure follows a 'what if' scenario, which goes something like this. As the lone survivor at the notorious cabin in the woods where the Necronomicon was unleashed, Ash is accused of murder and sent to an insane asylum. His own psychiatrist has plans to unleash monsters, Deadites and spirits upon the world and it’s up to Ash to save the day with his chainsaw and trusty boomstick. Groovy.
"I've come to understand that there is only one person in this world fit for this kind of work," said Ash, part-time S-Mart manager, full-time fox. "And that's me. Not because of my knack to get things right, most of the time, but because I ca
n slice and dice evil better than a knife sold on any late-night infomercial. Maybe it's partially to the fact that I've replaced one of my hands with a chainsaw, but I digress."
David Bollesen, general manager of the development studio Cranky Pants Games said this: "It's our goal to create the spiritual successor of Evil Dead 2, one of the seminal action films ever, in pop-culture. Having Bruce Campbell on board, providing creative direction and embracing new ideas we've injected into their universe is critical, and their enthusiasm continues to drive us to deliver the ultimate Evil Dead experience."
