Get those plastic supermarket bags at the ready folks, comedic duo the RubberBandits are coming to Thurles in March next, but not in the way one might expect.
The Bandits are about to launch their very first video game and attendees at Thurles’ Annual Games Fleadh this coming March will be given the opportunity to sample this game for the very first time.
RubberBandits: The Revenge of Stephen Forward is an iOS and Android game, the brainchild of the Bandits themselves, aided and abetted by Limerick based development studio “Open Emotion Studios.”
The game will feature scenarios specially written by the crazy mad Bandits themselves, including a cameo from “Willie O’DJ,” who must be freed from prison for “assaulting,” a dole queue.
