The Danger Field, an Announced 3D Game
Webby, FWA, and South by Southwest award winner The Bell Brothers have released the teaser page illustrated here under for their upcoming, browser-based Rodney Dangerfield game, aptly titled The Dangerfield. It will feature stereoscopic 3D gameplay, which talented eye-crossers can experience now on the Danger Field web site.
They aren't the first indies to be commissioned to make a video game with non-indie source material. Earlier this year, Adam Saltsman teamed up with Paul Veer to release a Hunger Games iOS title. The Bell Brothers told Indie Games they have full creative control with The Dangerfield project, "as long as we don't do anything that would shine a bad light on Rodney."
