Bethesda’s Pete Hines sat down with Joystiq and chatted a bit about WET and how the company got involved with A2M on the project.
One of the things he mentions is that it has a “Grindhouse” feel to it, what with your hands getting wet with blood.
“WET is short for wetworks, which is a CIA term for operations where your hands are literally going to get wet with blood,” he said. “We want you, as the player, to always be shooting, always be taking people out, whether it’s with your guns or your sword. You’re running around walls, jumping, spinning, sliding. It’s about comboing together cool moves to take out your enemies and doing in this cool 70s Grindhouse look.
“You really get that Grindhouse feel from the VO work from folks like Eliza Dushku, voice of Ruby (the character you play), Malcolm McDowell. There is a lot of music in the game, both from Brian LeBarton, who works with Beck, created an original soundtrack for the game that’s kind of really cool and hip and funky; and then layered on top of that are all these tracks we got from indie bands that have this cool rockabilly type sound that fit really well with both the original soundtrack and with the game.”

Demos are out on PS3 and 360 now, with the full game being released in the US and UK on September 15 and 18 respectively.
