The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai is the latest super-stylised platformer from James Silva.
James Silva's The Dishwasher
is finally set to go on sale this Wednesday on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 MS Points, or around £7.00 GBP.
The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai
is the gory 2D platformer that first won James the Dream Build Play content back in 2007, netting him the chance to have the game published on XBLA as a prize.
The game itself casts players as an undead samurai dishwasher who has to wade into battle against an army of cyborgs and zombies and stuff. Despite the fantastical plot and stylised presentation though, Dishwasher
is based on daydreams that James had when he worked as a real-life dishwasher - but you can read more about that in the two part column James wrote for us last year, titled How I Became A Games Designer
Harking back to the old-school type of 2D beat-em-up games, Dishwasher
features a rich combo system, lots of special moves and a huge selection of enemies to use them against.
On top of that The Dishwasher
will have a co-op campaign and a load of minigames and special levels, some of which can even use a Guitar Hero
or Rock Band
If you don't have an Xbox 360 though then don't worry - James has got plenty of other equally violent games available as freeware for the PC. Check them out at the Ska Studios website
