RockstarGames: Bully Video Game

Posted on August 24, 2006. Filed under: Games |

Bully is a video game under development by Rockstar Vancouver for Sony PlayStation 2 and is currently scheduled to be released in October 2006. An Xbox version was planned but has since been cancelled for undisclosed reasons [1]. The game takes place in a fictional reform school called Bullworth Academy. The title of the game is a reference both to the name of the school, Bullworth Academy, and to school bullying. The motto of the school – “Canis Canem Edit” – is Latin for “Dog Eat Dog“.

A press release by Take Two Interactive, publishers of the game, states, “As a troublesome schoolboy, you’ll laugh and cringe as you stand up to bullies, get picked on by teachers, play pranks on malicious kids, win or lose the girl, and ultimately learn to navigate the obstacles of the fictitious reform school, Bullworth Academy.”

Early information released by Take Two Interactive seemed to indicate that the player would be taking the role of a bully, and screenshots printed in Electronic Gaming Monthly showed the player-controlled antagonist administering a “swirlie” and throwing a punch at another student. However, a new trailer in 2006 suggested this idea was abandoned and instead the player is in control of a new student Jimmy Hopkins standing up against bullies.
