Hail to the Chimp Screenshots



Cockpit, Austin, Texas – June 22, 2007 - Gamecock Media Group today announced Wideload's Hail to the Chimp will be released on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION3 system in Spring 2008. Jump into the biggest political race the animal kingdom has ever witnessed and battle all competitors head-to-head. Do you have what it takes to be King of the Jungle?

"No one has attempted to bring an over-the-top party game like Hail to the Chimp to next-gen consoles, much less one with biting political satire," said Rick Stults, Console Chief for Gamecock Media Group. "Keeping with its reputation, Wideload is going to give gamers something truly original."

Hail to the Chimp begins after the Lion is deposed as King following a series of embarrassing scandals. The rest of the animals decide it's time to give democracy a try and hold an election for the next King giving even the lowliest of animals (the Clams) a say in things. The election quickly becomes a chaotic multiplayer free-for-all, with each candidate using a combination of brute force and dirty tricks to turn out the Clam vote. Ten animals will compete to become the next King. During the game, all ten candidates will need to form, and break, alliances with their rivals to gain the upper hand. Multiple game types and hazard-filled arenas keep the action flowing nonstop as the shifting loyalties, truces and vendettas build up to epic proportions.
