“Not only will dedicated fans of the original film be excited for the video game’s take on the property, but it will also introduce the cult classic to a new generation of Killer Klowns enthusiasts,” said Robert Marick, Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products and Experiences at MGM.
MGM has teamed up with video game publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and developer Teravision Games to launch Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game.
Based on the 1988 cult movie, the 3v7 asymmetrical online multiplayer game will see players team up as either Klowns or humans to explore an ever-changing map with ‘creepy surprises waiting around every corner’.
“We couldn’t be more delighted to collaborate with Good Shepherd and Teravision to bring this horror classic to life in an innovative new video game,” said Robert Marick, Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products and Experiences at MGM.
“Not only will the dedicated fans of the original film be excited for the video game’s take on the property, but it will also introduce the cult classic to a new generation of Killer Klowns enthusiasts.”
The Chiodo Brothers – creators of Killer Klowns – added: “When we first heard that someone wanted to make a Killer Klowns From Outer Space game, we all had the same initial reaction: finally! But nothing could have prepared us for the experience that the Good Shepherd Entertainment and Teravision teams were creating.
“We are thrilled by the sheer passion these folks share for the world of Killer Klowns and the care they have invested in bringing it to life in surprising new ways. We know our fans will be excited to be able to step into the oversized shoes of the Klowns for the first time… Because we are.”
Development of the game is being led by game designer and Friday the 13th: The Game Executive Director Randy Greenback. He said: “It’s a total bucket list item to get to work on the next chapter of such an iconic horror IP like Killer Klowns, especially getting the chance to partner with the original creators of the film and pair them with an incredibly talented development team like Teravision. I can’t wait for everyone to see what rockstars they are and the craziness we’re bringing to the genre.”
Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game is expected to release early 2023 on Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
