Players can unlock Mr. Toots and wield the unicorn of laser-butt-death as a playable weapon in the sci-fi shooter.
Oh, how far we’ve come. Videogames have resorted to poop jokes before, but never has a game completed the trifecta of combining lasers, farts and unicorns in one delicious package. As a “reward” for one million fans downloading the demo to the latest sci-fi shooter Red Faction: Armageddon, the developer Volition offers Mr. Toots. You have to see it to believe it.
“After completing the single-player campaign, Mr. Toots will be rewarded as a playable weapon,” a statement from THQ read. “Lift up his tail to break unicorn-wind upon your foes, instantly melting targets with devastating rainbows and happiness. Enemies will quake before your flatulent malevolence.
“Such is the power of Mr. Toots.”
I’m not sure how a laser-farting unicorn fits in with Red Faction‘s backstory, but I guess Volition doesn’t really care that much about verisimilitude.
Ah, who am I kidding? That Mr. Toots is adorable!
Here’s a more complete introduction to the wonders of the Toots.
