Am I being too harsh in titling this article? Don't blame me. Those are Sony's words.
It's all a part of the fun though as Sony is toying with the gimmick of downplaying their developer iFun4All and creating a game with the goal of making it terrible. Crap of Defense, the original iPhone/iPod version came out and against their wishes, earned positive reviews. Now, it's releasing under its new name, Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder and hoping for the same outcome in North America.
Here's a snippet from the update on the official PlayStation Blog:
We consider iFun4All one of the worst developers in the world, let alone Europe. We’re a small team, consisting mostly of a few talentless drunkards scattered about a few remote villages. With our limited funds and even more limited access to power and internet, creating truly great games just isn’t a real possibility. We instead decided to go the other way, and set out to create the worst games of all time.
A strong and laugh-worthy marketing strategy that actually works!
The point of the update was to reveal that Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder is available today on PSN in our neck of the woods so you might want to check it out if you're a PSP player. The game puts you in control of a tank, defending yourself against waves and waves of ... soldiers. Everything, from your enemy to the effects of your tank shells exploding is stylzed with paper illustrations, hence the title
You can fire a variety of weapons against vehicles as well, including trucks and everyone's favorite robots. Watch the trailer to see the violent reality that is Paper Wars:
Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder has been available in Asia and Europe since last year and as of today, is available in the U.S. for the PSP Mini.
