The lights are on
Feargus Urquhart loves RPGs. As the lead designer on Fallout 2 and one of the founders of RPG-centric Obsidian Entertainment, Urquhart and the rest of the team are not approaching South Park: The Game as a simple licensed title. A lot of thought is going into the challenge of creating a light-hearted experience that's enjoyable for fans of the show but also appeals to fans of Obsidian's deep RPG heritage. We spoke with the CEO of Obsidian Entertainment about how the South Park project began, working with the wildly creative minds of South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and how the team at Obsidian is approaching the opportunity to create a massive 2D RPG based on one of the most successful animated shows in history.

PaperMario artstyle works well in a 3d enviornment
I'm not hearing the South Park love from this guy. He's probably pissed Seth McFarlene didn't come to him first. The only good licensed games are made by die hard fans.
I like the sound of the direction they're taking the game. Can't wait to get my new Game Informer to read more about it.
Spoken like a true professional...
YESss, this game has a lot of potential. Humor is so rare in games, and this just sounds very unique and fun overall.
I want to see more of the actual game. However, what he said makes me curious.
really? common now. please let this be an early april fools
o my god....i found a penny...you b***ard
I want to see gameplay!
godd*mn esrb always ruing everything. DOWN WITH CENSORSHIP!!!!
It sounds like it has real potential instead of being a licensed turd. I think swearing in cartoons is funnier when it's bleeped, so I hope that's an option. But considering how crazy the stuff in the cartoon can get, it seems like they could basically do anything in this game. Online multiplayer?
This is sounding very interesting... :)
Need gameplay footage.
I'm not a South Park fan. I honestly was extremely disappointed when I saw that this was the new cover. But after watching this video I've decided that I'll probably at least give it a shot. Maybe even try the show. We'll see.
Good luck topping South Park 64..
