Wow! It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything from independent developer Mousechief, which makes the announcement of Mecha Edward Rutherfurd. This, in turn, makes Mecha Edward Rutherfurd even more surprising! Okay, I’ll admit it – I’m really taken with the title, Mecha Edward Rutherfurd. I probably shouldn’t get too attached though, since it’s only a working-title. I’m sure the official name will be good too. After all, it’s from the company that came up with the game Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!
Aside from the preliminary “title”, there’s only one other thing we know about Mecha Edward Rutherfurd – the rating. According to the TIGRS (The Independent Game Rating System), it’s assigned a Teen rating. Mousechief hasn’t revealed what’s in it to make it receive that rating yet.
Mousechief has also announced a contest to win a copy of Mecha Edward Rutherford. Each day, Mousechief will post a line of a poem at it’s website. The first person to identify said poem, by emailing in his or her name and address, along with a note saying which poem he or she thinks it is and a copy of the poem, wins. That person will get the first copy of the game and $1.
So far, two lines have been posted. They are:
“Ruler, Noble, Artisan, Drudge,
Wealth and poverty distract”
Don’t bother entering that part into Google in hopes of finding an easy answer. I tried it and it didn’t work.
Once the poem has been completely posted on Mousechief’s site, the official name of the game will be revealed. So you may want to check back there in two or three weeks.
