PAIN: PS3 Comedy Gold

The idea behind PAIN is to cause chaos in the game environments by firing your character from a slingshot into those environments. The player will score points the more chaos they cause and the environments include plenty of opportunity for slapstick mayhem with which to build that score. It’s a PSN download and some of the main features are:

. Multiple playable characters each with a very unique personality and attributes as well as character specific in-flight poses
. Plenty of ways to play in both Single and Multiplayer, including modes like Spank the Monkey, Mime Toss, PAIN Bowling, Fun With Explosive, and even more to come in future releases
. Relive every cringe-worthy smash and crash with the replay system in PAIN™ – Use the free camera to get the best angle on your best ouchies – we love this word
. Unique physics model created on Havok powered events, allow for amazing ragdoll animations, while ensuring that duplicating incidents is almost impossible – Keeping gameplay fresh over and over no matter how many times a player is launched into the same environment
. Robust online community feature set lets you compete with other players around the world on Global Leaderboards, track your friend’s scores, and connect to the upcoming PAIN™ website, where you can participate in polls, get developer updates, and provide feedback to make for a more PAINful experience in future expansions

Travis Williams, Senior Producer on PAIN, has said that the game will evolve based on player feedback.


This sounds like our ideal game, where being bad might actually be good – we can’t wait to bring the pain.
