Alan Moore Wouldn’t Like the Watchmen Game Anyways

One of the other many debuts during Spike’s VGA was the Watchmen game, and it’s looking very much like the crass commercialization of the Watchmen property that Alan Moore has been pre-pouting about for decades. The game focuses just on Rorschach and Nite Owl during the ’70s, so it’s a prequel, and based on the above trailer, a beat-’em-up which will be entirely in slow-motion. Frankly, I think the whole project can be summed up by the fact that the subtitle–“The End Is Nigh”–uses the Comedian’s smiley-face blood-splatter as the “i” in “is.”
