Anchovies really do suck. No matter what you say, I’ll never change my mind on that. From what I can tell, there aren’t any anchovies in World’s Fastest Pizza which released this week, though there are a ton of Aussie references, plenty of humour and a super powered pizza delivery guy. That’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.
Imagine if Hotline Miami had a love child with Paperboy. That’s a rather simple explanation, but it kinda covers some of the concepts on display here. There’s hints of a well known DC superhero story of the lead character who’s sent to Earth before his home planet is destroyed. Let’s be honest, if Clark Kent had been adopted by a redneck pizza maker and used his superpowers to save humanity whilst delivering pizza, this would obviously be the result.
World’s Fastest Pizza wears its humour with pride, taking shots at local politics, TV shows, celebrities and local culture. You could honestly ignore most of it and still enjoy the game, no doubt, but knowing all the references and in-jokes would certainly help the enjoyment factor. I’ll be sitting down to play it over the easter weekend, so I’ll let you know what I think of it properly later.
Actually, you know what, just watch the trailer below. It’s most definitely the kind of game that you’ll understand better in motion. What I will say, Perth based developer Oscar Brittain certainly has an imagination on him. The game was on show at last years Perth Games Festival complete with a pizza shaped controller, so you know it’s going to be as quirky as possible.
You can play World’s Fastest Pizza now via Steam for less than $5. That’s cheaper than a pizza itself. I mean sure, you can eat a pizza. Maybe devour it with a beer or a coke. But can a pizza make you laugh out loud or provide you with hours of entertainment? Can a pizza make you forget how bad Batman vs Superman will be? No. The answer is no. Just go play this instead and let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
