The Naked Gun films are still to this day some of the funniest you’ll ever see, and DNA Interactive’s The Naked Gun: I.C.U.P game does a fine job of replicating the schoolboy humour, so great to see that it’s currently on special offer for just $0.99, instead of the usual $4.99, for the next five days only until Monday, June 18. As befits the s******-worthy tone of all things Naked Gun, the promotion is called “Get NAKED for Under a Buck”, and offers gamers the chance to experience Episode 1- “A Date with Destiny,” which is the first of several planned Naked Gun episodes.
The adventure game introduces a fresh twist to the Paramount Studios film franchise, spoofing modern crime dramas and popular video game culture. Gameplay features mini-games, collectible objects, upgradeable environments, unlockable outfits, and surprise cameos by some of the gaming world’s most notoriously obnoxious characters. Here’s Bob LoCash, the original film series writer/producer, and writer of the game’s storyline, talking about the experience of creating the game:
The Naked Gun: I.C.U.P channels the hard-nosed yet dumb-witted character brought to life so brilliantly by Leslie Nielson in the films, as the player gets to follow Frank Drebin’s son, Frank Drebin Jr., along with his brand-new crime-fighting team, to dispense justice on evil-doers everywhere."Bringing this new chapter to life with the amazing and talented crew at DNA (I was held hostage for three days with a sack over my head until I agreed to the preceding statement) was a total pleasure. This game is something special - a funny and engaging piece of entertainment that will hopefully win the hearts of Naked Gun fans, gaming fans, and comedy fans alike. If not, there's always dinner theatre.”
