Futurama Rockets to Retailers

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivendi Universal Games announced that the video game Futurama has arrived at retail stores nationwide. The 31st century comes to virtual life with Matt Groening serving as Executive Game Designer. Futurama is a third-person platform action game, developed by Unique Development Studios in Sweden, for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft and features four playable characters, over twenty levels, puzzle/platform gameplay, and special combat moves all combined with the humor, character development and innovation of the highly popular & award winning television show. The gameplay and detailing have been developed in conjunction with Matt Groening to ensure an authentic Futurama experience. Groening, the series creator, said, "Futurama's sci-fi themes fit perfectly with sophisticated video game technology, helping you imagine what it would be like to be alive in the 31st Century. It involves blasting a lot of aliens." The main character and original voice actors have been used throughout the game and series writer J. Stewart Burns, who won an EMMY(R) for scripting the classic Futurama episode, Roswell That Ends Well, has written the game's storyline. Gamers will also be treated to about 30 minutes of new Futurama cinematic footage. Along with the television show synergy, Futurama utilizes NDL's Gamebryo(TM) 3D graphics engine and toolkit to enhance the game's style of 3D cartooning. Gamebryo's flexible framework provided the development team with what it needed for this project. The technology plugged right into the production pipeline and easily allowed custom features, content and gameplay to be added. Click Here For the full article
