AWARD-WINNING GAME DEVELOPER Denki hoodwinked by the latest scam in Peech Creek, following its creation of Ed, Edd n Eddy's: "Night of the Living Ed" for Sky Gamestar.
Based on the hugely popular cartoon series, the fast-paced, action packed fun takes place around the suburban streets and gardens of Peech Creek, home to the three musketeers of adolescence... Ed, Edd n Eddy. Players control everyone's favourite megalomaniac, Eddy, who scams his way through the neighbourhood in pursuit of the delusional, monster-inspired Halloween-costumed Ed.
Armed with an array of Edd's (AKA Double D) gadgets, Eddy blasts and splats the monstrously gooey adversaries that stand in his way. Combat is fast and furious as Eddy dodges globules of toxic goo, all the while attempting to collect his most prized possessions... Gobstoppers. And, should he feel so inclined, set free the neighbourhood kids caught up in the sticky carnage - for a price, of course.
Featuring Space Monsters and all the favourite neighbourhood kids, Eddy's success in awakening Ed from his destructive make-believe, whilst making a killing in the process, is tantamount to restoring their ever decreasing reputations in Peech Creek...
Commenting today, Denki's Managing Director, Colin Anderson said: "Ed, Edd n Eddy is Denki's 25th iDTV Product and continues our quest to bring console quality gaming to television audiences. We've worked with many different brand owners so far, but Cartoon Network's properties continue to be among our most successful."
Cartoon Network's iTV and Mobile Content Manager, Joe Braman, added: "This is a great Ed, Edd n Eddy adventure game featuring all the best elements of the Eds show. I scammed my way to significant riches on my first try and am looking to double that in subsequent efforts."
Ed, Edd n Eddy: "Night of the Living Ed" is live exclusively on Sky Gamestar as of Thursday the 11th of August 2005. Just press the INTERACTIVE button on your Sky Remote Control...
