LocoCycle is just as ridiculous as prior Twisted Pixel Games have been in the past, perhaps more ambitious than previous endeavors like Splosion Man and The Gunstringer. It also features a talking motorcycle. Is it as crazy as it sounds?
Twisted Pixel today announced the launch date for LocoCycle on Xbox 360 will be this Valentine’s Day, February 14th.
Also, they’re announcing a Steam version of the game is due out at the same time!
Freddy Rodriguez is already well known for his work in films like Planet Terror and television series like Six Feet Under, but every once in a while an actor gets an opportunity to go beyond acting, to play the transcendent role of a generation. In this case, starring as Pablo in the upcoming buddy-comedy video game LocoCycle. DeNiro and Hanks tried desperately to land the role but, in the end, Rodriguez’s moving portrayal of the terrified South American engineer was too powerful to deny. Also, his Spanish was better.
Rodriguez joins Robert Patrick (S.P.I.K.E.) and Lisa Foiles (I.R.I.S.) in telling the tale of an escaped sentient military motorcycle who uses her speed and martial arts to seek freedom in America. I.R.I.S. is attacked at every turn, and her only ally is her mechanic Pablo, whose pants leg gets stuck to her rear axle as she makes her initial escape.
Twisted Pixel will be debuting a new level from LocoCycle at PAX East, revealing more of the interactions between I.R.I.S. and Pablo. Along with showing the two riding and fighting together, the level also showcases Pablo’s ability to repair I.R.I.S. when her lightning-scrambled processor shuts down, as well as featuring some of their more intense action sequences.
There wasn’t much revealed about Twisted Pixel’s new game other than it has something to do with a badass, female, tron like motorcycle named I.R.I.S. More information would be revealed at a later date but all they left us was the E3 reveal trailer that played during Microsoft’s Press Conference. Enjoy the speculating!
