Post news RSS Introducing "Hatred Hed"

Hello fellow modders and developers, I would like to inform you all about my teams brand new game project entitled Hatred Hed.

Posted by on

The Game

Hatred Hed is an indie game which we are developing for PC (Windows) and hopefully Xbox Live Arcade.

The game is a cartoon based side scrolling shooter, which is going to be really gory and involve unique elements within its side scrolling gameplay. It will be developed from scratch and entirely in Microsoft's XNA game studio.

The Plot

The story is about "Hed" a skinny but insane 20 something year old guy, whose biologically mutant baby brother, gets abducted by a heavily armed secret government team. Our hero discovers the abduction in his brother's bed room as its happening and decides to take action up on the matter, thus, all hell breaks loose.

At the moment we are in early concept stages, basically having fun trying to pull some great ideas together to start work on a wonderful game.

Please visit our page and have a good look at our concept work, I will be updating our gallery every time I finish a piece.

Cheers Guys, M.K

So you have named a game for the people who take the highly addictive amphetamine which cause birth defects (thus the mutant brother.) Then go on a killing spree against child services who are trying to help the child by removing him from an unfit mother who caused the child to be was born an addict and deformed? And people wonder why video games have a bad name....

Mate calm down, were developing this as a casual game, and the plot is what it is because we just wanted it to be silly as possible thus not to be taken so seriously like what your doing now. Our target is XBLA, and over there users dont go for serious games, they look for pick up and play simple games with a coherent plot. I would never in this world give video games a bad name, the whole point of indie development is to get away from all those sequels and remakes, and just make something fun which you as the developer wants and what the players want.

This sounds well fun. I just love the name. I would agree to a point with CaptainSource's comment if the game was being developed as something that was serious and realistic. But it isn't so I don't. I love playing fun little games.

I forgot to mention also that I really like the style in the concept drawings. I hope that this is something that you do really get into the game. I am getting a little fed up of games that have the most beautiful/awsome concept art only for the final look of the game to never look like that.

Thanks Kinesis, I know exactly what you mean, believe me I am going to try my best to keep the ingame graphics as close as I can to the concept drawings.

I am not trying to put a downer on your idea... (well maybe the name) But just giving you some food for thought from the non gamers perspective and those in situations like being a crackhead and the families effected by it. I can tell you, it is not a game and it is not fun. So giving an honest opnion is a good thing rather than just super coolios yes men all the time...

War isn't much fun either, yet there are games made depicting the matter.
No one has a right not to be offended.
