When Red Fly Studio and Gamecock approached Les Claypool to contribute original music to the upcoming Wii title "Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars," the Primus frontman wasn't quite sure he was into it.
But his kids were, according to "Mushroom Men" producer Chad Barron, who stopped by MTV earlier today to show me the game. After the Claypool children learned what the fungi-laden platformer was all about, they urged their doubtful dad to take on the project. In fact, after playing "Mushroom Men" for the past few months, they love the game and even made their own drawings for it. Above are two pieces of artwork drawn by Cage and Lena Claypool.
And to be clear, Barron told me that there are no cats or bloody weapons in the E-rated game, though he'll consider them for use in future Red Fly titles.
You can check out "Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi" on DS in October and "Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars" on Wii in November.
