Do you remember the hack-and-slash, zombie-slaying adventure that dropped in 2012 under the name ‘Lollipop Chainsaw’? You might remember it for featuring a scantily-clad cheerleader by the name of Juliet, who wielded a chainsaw – obviously – and was charged with slicing and dicing the undead in a besieged high school.
In case you missed the news, it’s being remade by Dragami Games. It has a new title – Lollipop Chainsaw: RePOP – and recently, Dragami Games revealed that it will suffer from an extensive delay equalling an entire year.
This Was Actually a Thing
Lollipop Chainsaw was nothing short of bizarre. For instance, Juliet – the protagonist – had her reanimated boyfriend’s dead head attached to her by a chain, and she could swing a heavy chainsaw around while remaining inexplicably athletic.
There was even an achievement to unlock that would see the player managing to sneak a peek up Juliet’s skirt. It was actually tough to achieve, as Juliet would break the fourth wall and cover herself up if the player simply tilted the camera – they’d need to get creative and manipulate the camera effectively enough during a move set to unlock the achievement.
