Slam Bolt Scrappers is almost done! Time to do your part!
January 19, 2011
It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from Fire Hose Games regarding Slam Bolt Scrappers, but we received some good news today. Eitan Glinert, Fire Chief at Fire Hose Games, dropped us a line letting us know that Slam Bolt Scrappers is almost done. While we don’t have an official release date, we haven’t heard anything about SBS being delayed so I’m assuming we can still expect release sometime in Q1 (that’s Quarter 1) of this year. But before we get to all that, there is some urgent business to attend to.
For years, all gamers have done is take, take, and take from the developers. I know, you pay money for the games; but that only puts food on the table and pays utilities. It’s time to do your part and help name two of the playable characters. According to the press release, Eitan was confronted regarding this in his off-grid development cave. Here’s what he had to say:
Who are you people, and what are you doing in my shack? What do you mean, we need more character names? Well, why don’t we just let those good for nothing slacker fans decide, like they did for the Child’s Play charity? Now leave me alone so I can put more ninjas in this game.
For those that don’t know, in early December, Fire Hose Games held two auctions for the rights to name a character in-game; all proceeds went to the Child’s Play charity. If you missed the link the first time, you can go to the new Fire Hose Games site and vote on character names here. Currently, the characters are labeled as “Angel of Scrapping” and “Masked Menace” which, to be honest, sound pretty cool to me. We will continue to update you as we get more info. But for now, I’m going to leave you with some new screenshots.
