Rare is the first-person shooter that lets us pit murderous clown versus flamethrower-wielding Vegas showgirl, beach bunny against surfer bro. Ubisoft's new Bloody Good Time does, a multiplayer kill-fest from the developers of The Ship.

Developer Outerlight is bringing Bloody Good Time to Xbox Live Arcade and to PCs via Valve's Steam service, built on Valve's Source engine. Blood Good Time's bizarre cast of characters is explained by the game's premise—the eight-player shooter takes place on various movie sets, where "players will discover the merciless world of movie studios where anyone can star in a scary Hollywood blockbuster film."

The stylized action game features bizarre tools of destruction that include frying pans, flamethrowers and exploding remote-controlled rodents.

Blood Good Time arrives this fall.
