Click to viewIf Alan Moore had been even thinking about opening up to Zack Snyder's movie adaptation of his classic graphic novel Watchmen, this new video game ought to be the final nail in Moore's anti-social coffin. The game, entitled Watchmen: The End Is Nigh, has released a batch of stills that show Rorschach and Nite Owl cleaning up the streets with their fists. The end really is nigh, if they're expecting me to understand Moore's deeply troubled characters' psyches by mashing my fists about a game controller. It's like making a video game out of Moby Dick. Is nothing sacred?

Deadline Games is bringing us Watchmen: The End Is Nigh, where Rorschach and Night Owl clean up the mean streets in 1972, so it's a prequel...written by who exactly? But apparently Dave Gibbons is attached to the work. Tiscali Games has a whole mess of stills from the new Watchmen video game that is set to release in March, 2009 available on PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. What I'm most interested in is the "rage" power line, complete with Watchmen typography . So what will The Comedian's gauge be? An "I hate myself and shoot hookers" gauge? What do you think? I'd like to know your insights on this. [Tiscali Games via Slashfilm]
