Goon: The Game
Release Date: April 24, 2011
Client: Magnolia Pictures / Magnet
Magnolia Pictures hired us to produce a small game featuring characters from their hockey comedy-drama film "GOON", starring Seann William Scott and Liev Schreiber. Since the film was all about enforcers, we decided to create a game combining the fighting from Blades of Steel and the over the top violence of Mortal Kombat.
The game puts players in control of Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott) as face off against three different hockey enforcers of increasing difficulty. While Glatt has his own arsenal of unique attacks, so do his opponents, and all of them have special "Goonality" finishing attacks that are extremely memorable. The game was highly successful in promoting the film on social media, and was also featured on Newgrounds with additional achievement medals.
