Brutal Legend Unveiled, First Look

Following up on past rumors, the next project from Double Fine Productions (headed by Psychonauts creator Tim Schafer) will be heavy-metal centric Brutal Legend featuring comedy rocker Jack Black. This comes from the latest issue of Game Informer, which carries a feature on the game.

According to the magazine’s website, the game is billed as a “surreal ode to the mythology of rock and roll, starring the talents of Jack Black and a stable of heavy metal legends.” The game is in development for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Some scans from the magazine article have popped up online. It was originally contributed to this forum thread on Double Fine’s forums, but I have mirrored them here for convenience.
