RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 developer Frontier is working on a brand new game! And it's about building theme parks full of roller coasters and then riding on them using a "coaster cam". So perhaps it's not that new after all.
Thrillville's been enough to get LucasArts excited though - Georgey boy's lot are publishing it this autumn on PS2, Xbox and PSP, and played it up during E3.
You'll get to build a theme park, with five to master, fill it with any of 75-plus ride types in up to 15 themed areas (including "Pirates Gone Wild", "Gold Rush", "Ancient Treasures of Egypt" and "Moon Base"), and add to that go-karts, mini-golf and other mini-games, which you can actually play.
That's because one of Thrillville's twists is the option to play with up to three friends on 18 of the 22 "midway" mini-games, including bumper cars and shoot-'em-ups. You can also tour the park on foot.
The ultimate goal is to build a theme park over 150 missions that staves off the interest of the evil "Globo-Joy" corporation. And to ride around on roller coasters as you do.
In addition to all that, the PSP version will also have ad-hoc multiplayer, including the ability to share items like unique track and coaster designs with your friends.
