Eat Them! Hits PSN Today for $9.99, Includes 5 Million Monsters, Superheroes

Josh Miller's Avatar + Posted by Josh Miller on Dec 21, 2010 // Producer, Sony Computer Entertainment America

Eat Them! gives gamers the chance to wreak havoc on cities by creating and bringing to life colossal monsters to topple entire cities and feast on inhabitants. Always dreamed of laying waste to downtown? Here’s your chance. If you’re still not convinced, wrap your destructive side around some of the features of the game.

The Monster Lab. We wanted you to be able to piece together the apocalyptic creature of your worst nightmares, and the Monster Lab gives you access to a huge selection of monster parts including a full arsenal of excessively powerful weapons. This gives you the power to play mad scientist to your heart’s content, designing creatures tailor made. If you were so inclined, the Monster Lab would allow you to create over five million unique monsters – you certainly shouldn’t run out of ideas any time soon.

Eat Them! for PS3 (PSN)

Challenging Missions. Whether you get your kicks from maximum destruction, or prefer to face endless waves of opposition in a bid to survive as long as possible we’ve got the game style for you. Survival, assassination, racing and pure unadulterated destruction missions are readily available in Eat Them! Ever wondered what it’s like to rob a bank using a 100 foot tall, laser firing mechanical tyrannosaur? We can answer that question – it’s freakin’ awesome.

Co-op Multiplayer. The only thing better than single-handedly destroying an entire city is teaming up with other monsters to take down an entire city. Eat Them! allows four friends to join forces and play every mission in the game in multi-player. Anything you can do in single player, you can do in multiplayer, only with far more devastating effect!

Mayhem. As the missions play out, the city’s defense forces get wise to your destructive plans and send an increasingly lethal barrage of artillery – and even superheroes – to take you out. You certainly need your wits about you to fight them off, complete the mission at hand, and stay fed. I’ll give you one guess what your primary source of nourishment is.

Eat Them! launches exclusively on PSN today! Go download and start the sheer joy of charging up to a pristine building, and letting rip until only the foundations are left!

Hm, game looks pretty interesting.

Couple questions: will the Co-op be local-only or will there also be online? And will there be a demo? Thanks.

I always liked games like Rampage. There was a PS2 game out, think it was called “War of Monsters”? Really enjoyed that as well. Might have to give this one a try.

Alot of these blog posts seem to be vague on the multi-player modes. Local vs. Online multi-player can make a big difference to some people. I can assume this one is local only?

So another developer has made a game for PSN and can’t be bothered to answer questions when their game’s blog entry goes live.

Can’t be bothered to give a complete list of the game’s features.

Can’t be bothered to say if there is a demo or provide one.

+ snake4308 on December 21st, 2010 at 9:03 am said:

If I had the money, I’d have no problem buying this game for 9.99. It is at a very reasonable price yet some other developer/publishers ask 14.99 for a game with less features than this?

+ PuppetShoJustice on December 21st, 2010 at 9:16 am said:

@17; these posts are queued up well in advance. The person who wrote it might not even know precisely when exactly it gets posted. You’ve clearly never worked on a blog that has multiple posters from different parts of the world. The guy who wrote it didn’t post it and then get up and walk away. Way to be flippin’ ignorant.

If he doesn’t respond within a day then I’ll agree with you.

On topic; this game looks okay. But without a demo it looks like the Modnation DLC will win out for my ten bucks this week. No sense in risking it.

Hello Josh!

I am really looking into buying this game for Christmas! I had a couple of questions about the game though.

1. For the local co-op, is it 2 player co-op or 4 player co-op?

2. Will there be DLC for the game? It seems as though the game will not have much replay value.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi X-Flip-X,

    The local play supports up to 4 players in all game modes, so you can play through the whole game with friends if you wish.

    Thanks for your support

Josh,

noticed in your first reply you said “at this point” so is online multiplayer in the works?

or is it going to be offline only-forever?

still grabbing the game regardless,just curious :)

James, I would love to play this game. However, I noticed that European PlayStation Plus members get Eat Them! get a day-one 20% discount off the game – why not the same loyalty to US PlayStation Plus subscribers? After all, we do subscribe to the same service. Alas, if we would have gotten this discount, I would have pounced on this game immediately; however, without the discount I just feel like we were forgotten and our sales don’t count, compared to EU PSN Plus users.

I bought the game, but there arent as many monster parts, there isnt an endless mode, the survival mode is only 4 minutes long, the parts especially the head parts and shield backpack needs desciptions on how to use it and what powers each head can do.

There shouldnt be a time limit on survival mode. It’s really my main gripe since i cant enjoy the game properly. It’s probably going to be similar with other buyers.

This is a late post, so probably no reply…

I bought this Thursday night and started playing with my sons. We had a blast. It would be great to add online co-op – even as a patch. It’s not too late! ; )

Other than online multiplayer with voice chat my only request would be that other PSN accounts can sign-in and use the Monsters they created too. It was an issue when my youngest son wasn’t able to select his own monster creation when he played with me.

Great game though. Keep up the good work!
