WET looks to make gamers get wet

Hot chick with big jubblies? Check. Half naked for parts of the trailer? Check. Guns, swords and gore? Check. A reference to Jesus Christ? Umm, maybe. WET is the new action adventure game from Sierra that will be hitting shelves sometime in 2008. 

The game follows Rubi, a bounty hunter that was given a simple job, but it ended up nearly costing her life. Now she’s out for revenge and physics be damned as she wall runs, shoots her enemies as she slides down a ladder upside down and dodges bullets point blank.

I’m really looking forward to this game. It’s not often that swords and guns are mixed together as good as what this game is promising. No, Red Steel doesn’t count … and don’t even get me started on the piece of crap that was Cy Girls.  

Hit the jump for the press release and check out the WET official page for screenshots as well as some nice looking animation sequences.
