Thrillville: Off The Rails From LucasArts

Posted By Mike on December 4, 2007

From Starwars.com:

"LucasArts announced that Thrillville, the videogame where players create and experience the theme park of their dreams, will open its gates for a whole new season in Thrillville: Off the Rails. Featuring some of the most outlandish roller-coaster concepts ever imagined, as well as new ways to talk to park guests and a wider array of carnival games, this October release amps up the family-friendly mix of gameplay that made the original Thrillville such a hit. Frontier Developments returns to create Off the Rails, which will scream onto the Xbox 360 videogame system from Microsoft, Wii home videogame system from Nintendo, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Games for Windows and, with the help of developer DC Studios, Nintendo DS."

Award-Winning Thrillville: Off the Rails
Offers Theme-Park Fun in the ‘Off Season’

Unbelievable Roller Coasters and Virtual Acres of Amusement for the Family Are Open for the Holiday Season (and Year Round) in LucasArts’ Acclaimed Thrillville: Off the Rails



SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – December 4, 2007 – With amusement and theme parks around the country shuttered until springtime, LucasArts’ Thrillville: Off the Rails is just the ticket for adrenaline-pumping fun that can’t be found in any real-world park.

Recipient of the Editor’s Choice Award by Children’s Technology Review, Off the Rails lets players run the fun in the theme park of their dreams and is the sequel to the No. 1 original children’s franchise of 2006. This perfect holiday gift mixes outlandish roller coasters and wacky mini-games. It also includes a new, lighthearted story and amps up the amusement-park action by offering 20 new death-defying rides and incredible “WHOA Coasters.” Thrillville: Off the Rails makes imagination the only limitation on what to create in a theme-park setting – rides and coasters can jump the tracks, fly off the rails and soar to truly impossible heights, violating the laws of physics and letting players explore their thrill-ride dreams.

Promising a fun, accessible theme-park experience for the entire family, Thrillville: Off the Rails, created in association with Frontier Developments, is available on the Xbox 360™ videogame system from Microsoft, Wii™ home videogame system from Nintendo, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Games for Windows and, with the help of developer DC Studios, Nintendo DS™.
