Sony has revealed that it will be treating you to an episodic comedy series of games for PS3 called Rat Race.

It is being developed by Super-Ego Games to be available from the PlayStation Store, and features voices from real life funny people who have appeared in South Park, Flight of the Concords, Sex and the City, My Name is Earl, Ugly Betty, Comedy Central and more.

The story is based around the dysfunctional office of a company called BiggCo, where employees are all larger than life characters: the outrageously hot PR [staff writer - Ed], the jobs-worth who is focused on getting you fired, and a mad research scientist who spends too much time with his monkey.

You simply have to make it through the day, calling on all sorts of on-the-job-acquired talents like stealing, eavesdropping and sneaking to help you along the way.

For Super-Ego co-founder Greg Easley the aim is to make you feel part of your favourite telly sitcom, although that "doesn't do it justice".

The first episode is expected to be available in the US this winter.

We are still waiting for Sony Europe to tell us if and when we can expect it here.

Head over to our Rat Race gallery for a better idea of what to expect.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
