Boondock Saints game coming from Critical Mass

Critical Mass has gained the license rights for the cult film The Boondock Saints, the developer has announced.


A video game based on the 90s cult classic The Boondock Saints is in development from developer Critical Mass Interactive. The developer is known for pinch-hitting on aspects of various projects, so this licensed game will be its first shot at spear-heading a game itself.

Joystiq reports that the rumors began when various cast members announced they would be in attendance at SXSW Interactive to make a game announcement. It was then confirmed by the Critical Mass site, which announced it had gained the license to the film. More details are likely to be shared at SXSW, which begins March 9.

Critical Mass' portfolio includes art for Epic Mickey, audio for Tabula Rasa, and programming for Rift.

          That whole scene was so good.

          Rocco: [puts gun to his own head] I'll shoot myself in the head, you can tell me that cat's name! Go ahead! Your what? Your precious, little...
          Rayvie: Skippy! Skippy!
          Rocco: Oh, Jesus! What color was it, bitch?

      LOL that graphic is terrible ... it's straight out of the 90s, when marquee and java applets ruled the tubes.

        No shit. I saw that and immediately started looking for spinning skull GIFs and midi background music.

      Critical Mass? They actually have a studio now? They used to just be an outsource hut.
