Critical Mass working on a Boondock Saints game

Saturday, 25th February 2012 18:22 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Austin-based Critical Mass Interactive and cast members from the 1999 film The Boondock Saints are hosting a panel at SXSW next month, and according to a flyer noticed first by Joystiq, and the developer’s official website, a game based on the cult-classic is in the works.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about a game based on the shoot-em-up film.

Last year during SXSW 2011, Boondock Saints director and writer Troy Duffy told folks he was considering a game based on the films and even said he had “heard a pitch and even played a early part” of it.

This must be the game he was speaking of, because over on Critical Mass’s official website, the firm noted it was “awarded interactive development rights to the popular franchise.”

It also made note the movie has an “established Facebook fan base of over 4 million and growing.” Hopefully, this doesn’t mean it’s a fucking Facebook game.

The developer’s website has the flyer posted under the heading “Road to E3″, meaning we can probably expect it to be shown at the event.

Until then, though, more information regarding it should come out of SXSW 2012 which runs from March 9 through March 18.

    Co-op shooter would work best, since there’s two of them, three if you count Billy Connolly.
    I enjoyed the movies a lot, but when it comes to video game adaptations, I’m hesitant at best. Hoping for the best.

    looks like Critical Mass Interactive doesn’t really make games and look like an art shop. probably going to be an epic fail. too bad too Boondock Saints deserves better.

    Unless they’re the next Rocksteady (comming form nothing and making something amazing out of the gate), this probably won’t end well.
