GDC 09: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator to work with studio on Fistful of Blood

Newly formed Titmouse Games has confirmed that it has agreed a partnership with Kevin Eastman, co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and editor of iconic illustrated magazine Heavy Metal.

The partnership is set to release a number of games, starting with Fistful of Blood, an excessive action game based on the popular Heavy Metal serialisation of the same name.

“As demented as it is, I owe a lot of who I am to the wide body of work that both Kevin Eastman and Heavy Metal Magazine have exposed me to,” says Aaron Habibipour, creative director for Titmouse Games.

“Kevin and I have worked together in the past, and it was a blast. We want to start Titmouse Games off right, and I can’t think of a better way than to pack enough aliens, zombies, vampires, guns, blood, gore, vengeance, and sexy chicks in a game to take down a stampeding elephant.”

“Having been a lifelong fan of Heavy Metal Magazine I always thought the coolest part was the wide variety of stories that were published in every issue,” added Eastman, “and the chance to work with Titmouse gives Simon and I the chance to bring our Heavy Metal inspired visions to a much wider group of rabid fans!”
