Monster Madness dated

Ghoul just have to wait.

SouthPeak Interactive has signed a deal to publish Artificial Studios' Monster Madness on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next February - with other titles to follow.

As you'll know if you've seen the game in action on Eurogamer TV, Monster Madness is a top-down co-op title with impressive physics and snazzy character design.

Players take control of one of four characters - teenagers Zack, Carrie, Andy and Jennifer - who find themselves having to hackandslash their way through a traditional assortment of zombies, vampires and the like.

Yes, I can't believe I said snazzy either.

There'll be four-player modes, and some impressive physics. On the PC side, the game's one of the first to take advantage of AGEIA's PhysX chip, which allows you to do more of that sort of thing than you usually can.
