Bad Day LA

American McGee, designer of the delightfully twisted “American McGee’s Alice” video game (amongst others), points on his blog to an article on Gamespot covering the new Bad Day LA game. And given the screenshots and description, it has the potential to be a great deal of fun:

Enlight says that in BDLA, gamers will be “thrust behind the shopping cart of a homeless man turned city-saving crusader.” The main character, one Anthony Williams, is a “reluctant hero who left behind the privileged life of a successful Hollywood agent after losing his self-respect.” Williams encounters a number of challenges while traveling around the titular Southern California metropolis, including zombies, terrorists, and earthquakes.

The article has more screenshots and an interview with McGee.
