Day Of The Tiki Announced
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The creators of the video podcast Tiki Bar TV have joined forces with Secret Lab, an independent video game developer, to create video games based on the Tiki Bar TV video podcast. The first game coming from the partnership will be Day of the Tiki, a 3D platform game featuring the cast of the podcast in a "cocktail fueled story of intrigue and battles with communism." The game is scheduled to be released for Mac and Windows in Summer 2009, with an iPhone version coming later.

"Exciting things are happening in the Tiki Bar," said creator Jeff Macpherson, who stars as Doctor Tiki in the wildly successful, popular podcast Tiki Bar TV. "We are combining the power of video with the fun of game - we intend to call this exciting new medium the Video-Game. Gamers and drinkers alike will be thrilled to use Johnny Johnny like a puppet, and fling him into the face of danger," enthused the good doctor.

"Our audience has been requesting this for a long time and we're sure they won't be disappointed," added producer Tosca Musk. "This is the beginning of what we hope will be a long and adventurous collaboration." The first game to come out of the partnership, entitled Day of the Tiki, will be a 3D platform game initially available for Windows and Mac OS X, followed by a version for the iPhone. The game will be available for digital download.

Paris Buttfield-Addison, Producer at Secret Lab, noted that the project was a perfect fit for the team at Secret Lab: "We make our games with the same irreverent humor that pervades Tiki Bar TV. We are thrilled to collaborate with the ingenious team from the Tiki Bar."
A release date for Day of the Tiki is to be announced. Expected release date is Summer 2009.
