WET: "It's ALL in the Name"
Posted: Wednesday September 16th, 2009 by

WET is an action shooter probably best described as a "run and gun". That is to say you can shoot at any thing at any time (running, sliding down ladders, sliding across the floor, doing flips and crap). It's not all gun play though, there's a particular attention paid to sword play as well. Anywho it's got a gritty look and was written by the same guy that worked on 24.

The ridiculous part is that the inspiration for the comic actually came from playing Scribblenauts. One of the tutorials starts with your guy standing with a doctor, a chef, a police officer, and a fireman. You're asked to type into existence items that two of the characters would use for their job. I wrote in water hose for the fireman (and handcuffs for the policeman if you were curious). Water hose in hand, I half expected the fireman to blast the doctor. He didn't. But later last night when I was reading about WET, I was reminded of the word play and my expectations.

Both WET and Scribblenauts are out now if you've got some extra, disposable cash burning holes in your pockets. Tell them Woody sent you. It won't net you a discount or anything but the confused look you get might be worth it.
