am 100% in favor o' folks trying new and original, but this don't seem original so much as it just seems... stoopid.
It definitely sounds strange; and while I'm not sure its a vanity project the interview I read with the SP creators did sound a lot like "We like video games and wanted to do an RPG" kind of thing.
That said, it could be fun. Could also be a big mess. I'm hoping for fun though (and I say that as someone who has never watched an episode of South Park).
Well, now is as good a time as any to check it out.
Whats cool about SP is that they actually put all the episodes online for free(with commercials).
Here is a classic Christmas episode to put you in the holiday mood. lol
