In an industry plagued with sequels and prequels, innovate and unique IP’s are a sight to behold.‚  One man, Tim Schafer, producer of Brutal Legend, hopes his title can set the mark for distinctive titles in a muddy market.

Brutal Legend tells the ridiculous tale of Eddie Riggs, voiced by Jack Black, the ultimate roadie knocked unconscious at a show, who awakens in an oddly familiar world where he must defeat an evil emperor and his demon army using his stage intellect to slay his foes.‚  Sounds absurd right? Yes, but come on, it’s a video game, what isn’t possible?

Electronic Arts, publisher of the zany creation unveiled an October 13th release date for North American retailers today and encourages gamers everywhere to head on over to and see what the hullaballoo is all about.
