Toward the tail end of my retail run, I distinctly remember having PLAYSTATION 2 kiosks loaded with demo discs for Insomniac Games’ RATCHET & CLANK. That was 2002, and now – some 14 years later, RATCHET & CLANK is still going strong on the PS4, with a brand-new game just-released, and a feature film headed for theaters on April 29th. As excitement ramps-up, Gramercy Pictures has released an online “Sheepinator” game in which players can “blast mean tweets into fluffy sheep” (a kid’s version is here), along with a collection of new clips from the film. Check out a RATCHET & CLANK playlist below, and hit the official site for more.
From Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment, Ratchet & Clank is a CG-animated movie based on the iconic PlayStation video game. Two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy “lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.
