Eduardo the Samurai Toaster, ’nuff said
This funky art-style, side-scrolling action game from upstart Colorado-based game developer Semnat Studios revolves around Eduardo, his fellow toasters and food-flinging frenzy. The unique E-rated downloadable title has pastry being hurled at evil foodstuffs, laser-mounted scooters, rocket packs and multi-player options for co-op play. Eduardo the Samurai Toaster is slated to pop up on Nintendo WiiWare this summer.
