Fat Princess | Creative Director / Lead Designer

Fat Princess is a fast and frantic, 32 player pick-up-and-play, blood infused blast of hilarity. The game pits two teams against one another, each desperate to rescue their Princess from the depths of the enemy Castle. To achieve their goal players can collect hats , to change into different characters, each with their own skills and special abilities. Will you play the Mage and burn your enemies to cinders, or the Warrior and slice them to pieces? Fat Princess is all about working as a team. Will you collect resources and upgrade your Castle? Or will you feed the Princess Cake, making it harder for the enemy to carry her? It is all up to you!

The unique mixture of the games graphical style, action gameplay, team strategy, humor and buckets of blood create an experience unlike any other. Where else can you fatten up a Princess while simultaneously blowing a horde of enemies to pieces with a well placed bomb?

The game is to be released in Spring 2009 and is exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and will be available to download from the PlayStation Store. For more information about the game and to find the latest screenshots, visit the official Fat Princess website.
