October 19, 2007


Early Translation Reveals The Most Righteous and Epic Fable of Massive Music,
Apocalyptic War, and Brutal Action… Ever

Sierra Entertainment revealed today the discovery and initial findings of Brtal
Legend™. Guided by sacred power chords and blessed bass drums, Tim Schafer and
his team of metal historians at Double Fine Productions have cracked the
primeval secrets to the Age of Metal. Together, the two groups are in the
process of reconstructing and realizing the events that took place eons ago,
allowing future generations to pay respect and experience first-hand the blood,
sweat and chrome needed to ensure metal prevailed.
“Holy crap!” exclaimed Schafer, “I have been dreaming about this day for fifteen
years. And now it is finally here. We’ve gathered small clues over the years
about the Age of Metal, in songs, t-shirts, and album covers. But now we have
uncovered the metal mother lode, the full legend of what actually happened in
that loud and heavy era, and we are the lucky ones who get to tell the tale.”
“Our existence as humans will forever be reconceived,” said Martin Tremblay,
president, Worldwide Studios for Sierra Entertainment. “Definitive answers to
the discovery of dry ice, invention of the wheel, Jurassic era, religious
convention and many other testaments and myths are going to be revealed to the
Work has been going around the clock and insiders close to Schafer have
described Brtal Legend as the chronicle of Eddie Riggs, a roadie of a virtuous
metal band, pulled back in time to learn his true purpose. Offered the wealth
and knowledge of an ancient kingdom in exchange for assembling a legion of his
own design, the roadie commands a barbaric mob of demons, dragsters, amp stacks,
leather, and chrome. Together they thunder across the land in the ultimate Tour
of Destruction, driving the ancient world headlong into the Age of Metal.
Piecing the period of time when a divine society used raw materials of ROCK and
hot rods which lay dormant in this land, experts at Double Fine also revealed
the fantastic nature of this world where Big-block V8 engines were dug out of
the ground like minerals. Exhaust pipes were cut from trees made of chrome and a
luminous sky was lit up with heavenly lighters held up by the gods.
The entire narration of Brtal Legend will be told through today’s most
sophisticated and wide reaching technologies, namely PLAYSTATION®3 computer
entertainment system from Sony and Microsoft’s Xbox 360® video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft. Set for release to the world in 2008, all
should prepare for the onslaught of pure brutal mayhem and enlightenment.

Officials have promised additional details regarding Brtal Legend and the
future of mankind will be available at
