Air guitars at the ready. Double Fine man Tim Schafer has reiterated his love for 2009's Brütal Legend, and admitted that there's a chance the studio could revisit that world again someday.
"I love that world and I would love to go back there. And I think [actor Jack Black] might be up for it, too," Schafer told Gamespot during a livestream yesterday. As a fan of both gaming and heavy metal music, I enjoyed Brutal Legend, even if the weird headbangers and their grossly overdeveloped neck muscles icked me out.
The game, which starred Jack Black as Eddie Riggs, the "greatest roadie of all time" transported to a heavy metal dimension when blood drips onto his cursed belt buckle, had both action and RPG elements, and featured a world that looked like it was made from every bad eighties album cover put together.
"I would love to go back to that world or even just do a DLC pack," Schafer continued. "We're always trying to get Lionwhyte in there; a playable Lionwhyte army," Schafer said. "Maybe that would happen someday. I would definitely love to do that."
Lionwhyte, the leader of the Hair Metal Militia, was voiced by Judas Priest lead singer Rob Halford. On a related note, our office is going to be forced to listen to Judas Priest for the rest of the day now. He also had a glorious mane of hair.
What say you; more Brütal Legend, or has its time passed? It is Double Fine's best selling game ever, mind you.
