No way. Ninja Theory’s Enslaved’s based on Monkey! Well, sort of. It’s loosely based on middle ages Chinese novel Journey to the West, the background for the greatest television program of all time. We know because Destructoid read the title’s Game Informer reveal article and put details on the internet.
The game’s story’s written by Alex Garland, and centres on the travails of Monkey (voiced and mo-capped by Andy Serkis), who comes to be controlled by a woman called Trip. Trip needs Monkey to get home, and can make him go mental with a headband he can’t remove.
It’s set 150 years in the future after third and fourth world wars. The human race is almost dead.
Sounds sassy. Hit the link. First images of this popped up yesterday.
