Naked Gun ICUP (NG) is an updated version of the classic Naked Gun film franchise. This new re-imagining of the franchise will parody modern crime dramas like CSI, NCIS, Criminal Minds, etc. while skewering modern games such as L.A. Noire and Angry Birds.
The serialized mystery game app will incorporate puzzle and adventure gaming mechanics similar to classic titles such as “Sam and Max” and “Monkey Island”.
