Game release: “Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?!” (PC)

Daylight Studios and Daedalic Entertainment‘s Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! offers a humorous simulation spin on secret agency stories.

Ren and Rexa’s parents have disappeared, and in order to find them, the twins put their spy skills to good use, i.e. managing their own spy headquarters where new recruits are trained and used in missions world-wide to bring down an evil spy corporation that obviously has something to do with their parents’ whereabouts. What sounds like a game version of the Spy Kids movies is made even quirkier by the fact that everyone is a potato, so anyone expecting a serious spy simulation like Phantom Doctrine should look elsewhere.

However, this doesn’t mean that the life of a spy potato isn’t less stressful. Everything one associates with the genre can be found here, as one doesn’t only have to send agents on various secret missions that usually involve infiltrating enemy headquarters and stealing vital information or sabotaging them, but also building all-important gadgets as well as vehicles when in the field. New facilities or training stations, upgrades to Ren and Rexa’s headquarters are part of the job, too. Even gene splicing is possible to create more advanced spies.

The game certainly looks and sounds crazy enough with its cartoon visuals and not-too-subtle references to popular movies that aren’t necessarily of the genre the game makes fun of. So meeting people like Agent Peri-Peri, Detective Canon, or Killy Billy should give an idea of how bonkers the title is. Still, despite all the silliness, one will have a lot of things and potatoes to manage at the same time, making it a deeper title than the casual presentation seems to hint at.
