The Italian duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill are best known for their spaghetti Western films. Well, on October 27th, 2016 indie publisher Buddy Productions and indie dev team Trinity Team posted on Steam Greenlight that Bud Spencer & Terence Hill – Slaps and Beans will hit PC via Steam Early Access Q4 2017 after its success on said platform.
You say you don’t know who Bud Spencer and Terence Hill are? I think this scene from the second movie called Trinity is Still My Name after the first film They Call Me Trinity, will help you understand who they are and what this upcoming indie game is all about:
The indie game that was once on Greenlight, Bud Spencer & Terence Hill – Slaps and Beans, is a co-operative or single player side-scrolling beat’ em up game. It hones platform elements and mini-games that relate to the characters of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, who were featured in movies of the 1970’s and 1980’s. The official description explaining what players will be doing in this game sits right here:
“Bud Spencer and Terence Hill in their first virtual adventure.
Whether in the Western Saloon, Miami Downtown, at the fairground… you’ll get the full load of funny conversations, slaps and of course lots of mass brawls.
It was intended to be just a normal job to make a couple of bucks. But they wouldn’t be Bud and Terence if everything would have gone as planned. The money gone, a pretty girl kidnapped and a bunch of bad guys with evil plans.
All criteria for numerous hearty mass brawls and pointless funny situations are met! Grab your gamepad and play in the first video game as Bud or Terence, alone or with a friend in co-op mode against the bad guys.”
The official trailer showing the game before it launches in the next five days of this writing can be looked over right here. The video moves from cut-scenes to actual gameplay, which, as noted in the description, jumps from scenario to scenario as the duo.
