of NIS America, Inc. shared the following news via PlayStation Blog:
Hello everyone, my name is Nao Zook from NIS America
. Today, we are very excited to announce our upcoming PSP title!
It's called "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This?" Now, I know the title is super long. In fact, it just might be the longest, and craziest, title in videogame history! But actually, we at NISA are pretty happy with this name.
So anyway, you must be wondering what this game is all about.
"Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!" is a strategy game with an RPG feel to it. You play as the God of Destruction, and you must save Badman, the underground overlord from various heroes. Badman is helpless and whiny, but once in a while he finds the cajones to question your actions. Sounds like Badman is a real pain in the butt, huh? But he's also got some hilarious lines, so we're sure you'll have fun with him.
Now, in the actual game you appear as a pickaxe. Okay, we know, it's just a pickaxe. But you're the friggin' God of Destruction! It's your duty to crush all these pesky heroes invading YOUR underground turf! In order to defeat them, you just dig and dig and dig... this is how you produce the monsters and demons that will serve and fight for you.
They have their own Demon Ecosystem, so as they eat each other they will grow and reproduce. The key to this ecosystem is keeping things balanced. Once the balance in the ecosystem breaks, you will lose a great amount of your fighting force to use against the heroes. So you have to pay attention to what happens to your demon army.
This game is very simple, but still offers plenty of depth. (Literally! You have to dig pretty deep to save Badman's empire!)
"Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!" boasts a retro-style visual flair that matches its throwback game style perfectly. And we think lots of people will be attracted to Badman, and won't be able to stop themselves from spending many sleepless nights with him!
Finally, we are planning to release a demo version of the game on PSN soon, so keep your eyes open!
Below is the tentative package art and a few screenshots from "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!"

About Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!
The goal of the game is clean and simple: As the God of Destruction, you must create a dungeon that is difficult and powerful enough to fend off human hero invasions. The dungeon must have a self-sustaining ecosystem, so players must strategically dig and create a dungeon with a balanced food chain. Periodically, human heroes will invade the dungeon in order to bring peace and harmony to the world, but they are your enemies. You must destroy the heroes before they capture the Overlord and take him back to the surface.
