If you read PerezStart’s review for The House of the Dead: OVERKILL, you would know that we absolutely loved it. You also would have learned that if the game had a mouth, it would have at least 3 bars of soap in it at the same time.
Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition announced SEGA’s latest version of The House of the Dead has broken the record for having the most swear words in a video game. Out of a three hour playthrough, a whopping 189 variations of the F word come spilling out of the game’s characters. That’s an F word a minute, or 3% of all of the dialogue in the game!
Jonathan Burroughs, who is the writer for The House of the Dead: OVERKILL, had this to say upon hearing of the game receiving such a prestigious award,
It is a dubious honour to receive such an accolade working in an industry where so often the fruits of your labours are derided and dismissed for being puerile or irresponsible, but in the case of The House of the Dead: OVERKILL a little puerility was the order of business. Parodying the profane excess of grindhouse cinema was Headstrong Games’ objective and I am flattered that this record acknowledges that we not only rose to that challenge, but entirely exceeded it.
Bravo Jonathan on a job….. done.
