Just announced and due out in 2008 comes a new game from the creative mind of Tim Schafer at Double Fine, whose long career stretches back to the early days of LucasArts. Brutal Legend tells the story of a roadie named Eddie Riggs (voiced by Jack Black) who finds himself pulled into a mythic land once ruled by rock legends, but now is full of twisted creatures and demons.
So what does any good roadie do when found in this situation….he decides to put on the most insane music tour created! Outside of the amazing design, the other great aspect is the list of Hollywood and Rock and Roll celebrities being targeted for major roles, some of which are Mottorhead's founder Lemmy, Rob Halford of Judas Priest and Black Sabbath’s Ronnie James Dio. Along with lending their voices they are all planning on contributing new music for the game as well. So it is easy to see why this game has already shot to the front of the industries to-watch-list.
