The Tron Legacy viral campaign continues with the release of the trailer for the brand new Space Paranoid Online game. The game was announced at WonderCon a couple weeks ago by ENCOM exec Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner) and now the teaser trailer has been posted at FlynnLives.com. As Bradley said in his announcement, there will be 15 new levels designed by Kevin Flynn. The only problem is that Kevin Flynn has been missing since 1989 so I wouldn’t be surprised if this new game has more going on than just retro arcade fun. Sadly, there’s no official release date yet for the game.
While Space Paranoids Online is based on a game seen in the original 1982 Tron movie, a playable version of the video game first appeared as one of many retro arcade games at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con at the Flynn’s Arcade event. According to Wikipedia, “The object of the game is to go through the levels and to achieve as many points as possible by destroying Recognizers. The total number of points a person can achieve is 999,000 pts, a record currently held by the gamer, FLN.”
Hit the jump to check out the teaser for Space Paranoids along with an official synopsis for Tron Legacy, which is slated to hit theaters on December 17th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Tron Legacy:
TRON is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (GARRETT HEDLUND), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (JEFF BRIDGES), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (OLIVIA WILDE), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
