King of the Hill has a Game, I Tell You What

King of the Hill has a Game, I Tell You What
Telltale Games has given franchises like Back to the Future and The Walking Dead the video game treatment, but what if King of the Hill got its own point-and-click adventure? Wonder no more: Fox Interactive Media has beaten Telltale to the punch with their own re-creation of Arlen, Texas.

Based off of the (cancelled) Fox TV show, the King of the Hill video game places you in the role of the new neighbor on the block during its annual Fourth of July celebration. You might not be fighting off zombies (or even working at Strickland Propane), but there are 20 different minigames available ranging from Peggy Hill’s “Tic-Tac-Toss” to Dale Gribble’s “Texas Huntin’” paintball course, made completely from scratch in his own backyard. Those who wish to explore the area can also chat with the townsfolk, including such stimulating topics as Bill Dauterive’s ex Lenore and Bobby Hill’s thoughts on fruit pies.

Want to pick up the game for yourself? It has yet to receive a Steam release, but sealed copies can be found on Amazon for $245.
