Ever heard of Super-Ego Games? Neither have we, but that's all about to change this winter upon the release of their newly announced title, Rat Race.
In this PSN-exclusive comedy adventure, you'll be an Average Joe working at an extremely dysfunctional company called BiggCo. The employees at the office "make the Enron guys look like Nobel Prize laureates." The objective? Make it through the day intact. Some encounters include Joy Chung, an impossible but smoking PR exec; Chip Bratsby III, an arrogant sort whose primary focus is getting you fired; and Dr. Ron Durfman, a research scientist "who may or may not be intimate with his lab monkey".
Greg Easley, one of the founders of Super-Ego, summed it up on the PlayStation Blog:
"Our goal is to give you the feeling of 'playing' inside an episode of your favorite TV show. Sometimes we describe Rat Race as an interactive sitcom, but that doesn’t do it justice. There’s more to the experience than funny dialogue. Along the way you’ll sneak, sprint, solve puzzles, eavesdrop, steal, and even “neutralize” that lab monkey."
There are a multitude of impressive names behind the writing and voice acting, previously working on such shows as Late Night with Conan O’Brien, My Name Is Earl, Saturday Night Live, South Park, Flight of the Conchords, Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, and more.
Get ready for the first episode in this hilarious series to hit PSN this winter. We'll bring you more details on Rat Race as soon as they're available.

I think this is that game we were hearing about a while ago that was revealed in a questionaire that asked how much people thought it would be worth. Hopefully the priceing for this game has been correctly determined. It might turn out to be as col as the downloadable Sam & Max game... kinda wish we got that too.
