Penned by PratchettThey'll also be different coloured minions that possess different skills, including the brown Minions that are the fighters and the strongest minions in general combat. Red Minions who are fire throwers and act like archers by hurling blazing fireballs as a long range attack. Green Minions who are the Assassins and love to use stealth attacks. And finally, Blue Minions who are the smartest of the minions and have healing powers and can resurrect their fallen minion comrades and bring them back into the fight.
The storyline has been penned by Rhianna Pratchett, daughter of Terry who tells us that:
"The lead character is in a Cinderella scenario with his elder and rather unpleasant brother and sister. He is the forgotten child while his father is away, and his wicked twin siblings are plotting to take over the kingdom with their own perverse alliances with elves and dwarves. The story game also introduces wicked witches, gingerbread men and Lil’ Red Riding Hood, the seeming sweet girl with a lupine side to her personality."
Bit of a long time to wait though we're afraid, Overlord Dark Legend is due for release in 2009.
