Brütal Legend

There’s nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you’re gonna eat it
– Jack Black

Maybe you can’t prepare yourself to rock, but at least get ready for Rocktober! The month when Brutal Legend is up for release.
Brutal Legend is a upcoming action-adventure game and the mastermind designer behind it is none other than Tim Schafer. The man who brought us Psychonauts, Grim Fandago and the first two Monkey Island games.

You play as Eddie Riggs, the worlds best roadie for the worlds worst Heavy Metal band. Eddie is accidentally brought into a fantasy world after bleeding on his cursed belt buckle. Which is actually a amulet for Ormagöden, “The Fire Beast, Creamator of the Sky, and Destroyer of the Ancient World”.
The fantasy world Eddie Riggs is transported to is inspired by Heavy Metal posters and it’s in that world where the whole story takes place.


Brutal Legend will be in third-person in an open world, apparently 64km2 according to Tim Schafer. As mentioned you play as Eddie, but here comes the funny part; Eddie is voiced by Jack Black. Yes, the comedian rockstar! I personally think it’s an awesome feature to the game. Don’t you just love Tenacious D and Pick of Destiny?
Anyway, as Eddie you will have three different tools to choose from. One is a broadaxe named “The Separater”, another one is Eddies guitar “Clementine” with magical powers within the Heavy Metal world. Lastly there is a Hot Rod named “The Deuce” which Eddie builds for himself.
As you progress you will be able to upgrade these three tools and their abilities.

With that it’s up to you to fight of the evil in the Heavy Metal world and save your love and the human world from being destroyed. A awesome concept for a game and I can’t wait for it to hit the stores.
Jack Black, Heavy Metal and a crazy fantasy world filled with evil. Who wouldn’t appreciate that?
Another thing I like about this upcoming game is the graphics. It has more of a childish look to it. That shows that Brutal Legend isn’t some radical metal game for hard-rockers only. That gives the game some self distance. There will probably be a lot of humor too for that matter.

Let’s rock like there’s no tomorrow in Rocktober!
