If you haven't figured it out by now, DICE is one of our favourite developers. They've been at the quality Battlefield series for nearly a decade now, putting the focus on tactics and teamwork over somewhat mindless blastfests. They also created the fabulous parkour game Mirror's Edge, which broke many boundaries and also, quite strangely, discouraged the use of guns.
But DICE has a dark and terrible history they don't want you to know about. Or, they're reluctant to show it at least. DICE's general manager KM Troedsson brought up this secret past last evening on Twitter, revealing the following distinctly horrifying work as a DICE creation (the early era Nightwish doesn't help matters):
If we haven't scared you off yet, there's more. The video also provoked mention of PRYZM, another DICE game, this one on the PlayStation and also released in 2002. There's no horsies in this one, but rather magic and talking unicorns.
Note the full title is PRYZM: Chapter One: The Dark Unicorn, implying there would've been more chapters.
If you're feeling especially masochistic this morning, you can also check out this Let's Play series on PRYZM -- the guy doesn't make it 30 minutes before throwing in the towel.
Bless you, DICE, just no squad-based multiplayer horse or magic unicorn games, please.
Update: it's come to our attention they also developed Secret Agent Barbie: Royal Jewels Mission and Diva Starz: Mall Mania. Oh no!
