House of the Dead: Overkill will be pretty “extreme”

“We’re not brutalising any minorities. It’s good fun, tongue in cheek – nothing you wouldn’t see in a movie. We’ve really not restrained ourselves in any way. We want to go all guns blazing and make it as extreme as possible almost. Sometimes we’ve gone ‘ooh, we shouldn’t really do that’, but then we’ve gone ‘no, hell yes we should’. There’s no reason we shouldn’t do this stuff, it’s not exploiting anyone. I think it’s just a story for the tabloids. Nothing we’re doing in our game hasn’t been done in a movie before. It’s undoubtedly an 18 certificate game. We’ve put censorship badges and warnings all over it.” – Neil McEwen, House of the Dead: Overkill producer

In the case of Overkill, making the game “extreme” will be beneficial to the title’s overall vibe. After all, the game should be scary considered that you’ll be taking on hoards of undead enemies.
