When Sony closed down Studio Liverpool, four members of the team formed Sawfly Studios (interview here) – and the studio’s first output has been announced: it’s a PS Vita, iOS and Android game called Men’s Room Mayhem, due for release in a matter of weeks.
“Men’s Room Mayhem takes toilet gaming to a whole new level,” says the press release. “In this frantic line drawing game based around men’s room etiquette you take on the role of the janitor & guide your patrons around the men’s room.”
“You need pinpoint precision & strategic steering to get your patrons to use urinals, toilet cubicles and sinks whilst avoiding fights and having nasty little accidents. As the waves increase the patrons pile up fast. Extra points are scored for maintaining proper men’s room etiquette as well as for demonstrating good personal hygiene.”
We’d hoped to get hands on with the game before the reveal, but sadly this didn’t happen. From the screen we’re guessing it plays like Flight Control.
“When the opportunity to work with the ex-Studio Liverpool guys at Sawfly Studios came along we jumped at the chance to involve them, and we are absolutely delighted with the results,” said Phil Gaskell, Creative Director & Co-Founder at Ripstone, who are publishing the game.
