Atari Inc. and Marc Ecko have officially launched the Marc Ecko?s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure website. The action-adventure game being developed by The Collective is steeped in the graffiti culture. Gamers will play as Trane, a graffiti artist working his way up through the ranks, as he uses his graffiti to battle a corrupt government.
The website features a look into the real life graffiti culture; profiles on graffiti writers, and information on different graffiti styles. The site also hosts a blog by writer/creator Marc Ecko, also the creator of the *ecko unltd. clothing line. There are downloadable pictures and music clips, as well as exclusive buddy icons. Also available are in-game trailers and interviews with Marc Ecko and the team at The Collective.
A quick look at the website, www.gettingup.com, shows that much of this content has yet to be posted, but the site promises that it will be coming soon.
Marc Ecko?s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is slated for release this November on Playstation 2 and Xbox. A mobile version of the game is available through Glu Mobile. For more information on the game and graffiti culture, check out the website at www.gettingup.com.
