Scarygirl Leaps from Comics to Video Game


Square Enix, Inc. announced Scarygirl, a new action-platform game based on Nathan Jurevicius’ critically acclaimed graphic novel of the same name. 

Developed by TikGames, Scarygirl will be available on January 18 for the Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, January 24 for the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC in early 2012.

Scarygirl presents an adventure into a beautifully bizarre world.  The titular character Scarygirl is an abandoned child with a tentacle arm who dresses like a pirate, and is haunted by a strange man in her dreams. She sets out into the world to discover the meaning behind her bad dreams, but Scarygirl is hardly helpless, as she has a tentacle-powered arsenal up her sleeve.

During her adventure, Scarygirl will be aided by her friends and guardians from the graphic novel, Blister the giant octopus and Bunniguru the mystical, kung-fu rabbit. Her friends and an ever-improving arsenal of combat moves will help her face down enemies like the adorably deadly hedgehogs of the Owl Woods, the violent Goat Clan along the Old Man Mountains, Hairclump spiders deep in the Stinky Swamp, and the most enemiest enemies of all – the clueless crossing guards around Bad Town.
