HELLO GAMES ANNOUNCE NEW TITLE

Guildford, England – August 12 th 2011 – Hello Games, the bright young indie start-up, and creators of the multi-award winning Joe Danger for Playstation Network announce their new title.

Speaking earlier today Sean Murray, Managing Director said; “It's called Joe Danger: The Movie and it’s kind of a sequel to Joe Danger, but it’s also something entirely new. I guess I would say that the entire gameplay experience of Joe Danger on PSN, would be just one short scene in this new game.”

Joe Danger: The Movie will be unveiled to the world for the first time at Gamescom Cologne, and PAX Prime.

Sean explains: “Joe has become a success by the end of the first game, and this one starts with him being discovered by a mysterious Hollywood director. Picture every film you’ve ever loved as a kid, from Rambo to Short Circuit to the Goonies, all cut together into some crazy montage, and that’s basically the script for our game."

The game will allow players to create their own action film scene by scene, performing every stunt themselves. Creating probably the most ridiculous action sequences ever made, players can perfect every stunt to thrill the audience, or crack them up with your failed attempts.

Sean prepares everyone: “We’ve kind of gone a bit crazy in terms of ideas and scope, or at least I really hope we have. If you liked Joe Danger, then I think it’s going to rock your world. Even if you didn’t like it though, this is different enough that we might just win you over. That’s the idea, but like I say who knows, it's a very different game, and no one but us has seen it yet."

Hello Games are remaining tight-lipped on intended platform, although they promise some surprises at Gamescom.

The original Joe Danger was a flagship title for PlayStation®Network and received many critical plaudits. Achieving a Gold rating from the world’s largest gaming magazine, GameInformer, and Editors choice on one of the world’s largest gaming websites, IGN. It also went on to win multiple awards and become the top user rated title on the service.

ABOUT HELLO GAMES

Hello Games was founded by a band of four friends who had climbed their way to the top of the pile at great developers like Criterion, Sumo, Kuju, EA and Climax. They have decided to set forth on a brave journey of discovery and adventure to bring some new, funky coloured pixels to the world.

They have loved every minute of helping to create great games like Burnout, Geometry Wars Galaxies, Sega Superstars Tennis, MotoGP and Black – but it’s come time for them to forge their own path. They must unleash the charm and creativity that has been stopping them from sleeping at night. Joe Danger was their first title, a triple A game developed by the talented team of four.
