Eidos, a leading publisher and developer of entertainment
software has announced a deal with Artificial Mind and Movement (A2M) to produce
"Get On Da Mic," a Hip-Hop music video game.
The game, which will be available for all major
video gaming systems, allows players to live a fantasy lifestyle resulting from
their success in the Hip-Hop industry.
Players must impress crowds with their ability
to rap as they go from the streets, the clubs, recording studios, video shoots
and performances in front of thousands of fans.
The game is complete with shady agents, powerful
producers, groupies and even allows you to purchase a house and various jewelry
based on your success.
"Get On Da Mic immerses players in the alluring
world of becoming a Hip-Hop celebrity," said Paul Baldwin, Eidos North
America’s vice president of marketing. "A2M has secured one of the most
robust music soundtracks available in any music game featuring over 40 tracks.
The game also boasts a non-confining freestyle mode allowing players to show
off their lyrical skills and pave their own paths to fame among their friends."
No release date was provided for the game, which
is still in development.
Eidos has developed such titles as "Backyard
Wrestling," "Hitman Contracts" and "Invisible War,"
while A2M is responsible for "The Grinch," "Bugs Bunny: Lost
in Time" and "Jersey Devil."
