Demented Games have added a new group to the Guild of Harmony in the their steampunk game Twisted: Monkey's Troupe of Travellers.

Yup, it's time once again for one of my favourite parts of these kind of releases: singing the 1970s Monkey theme tune!

The group is made of that colourful cast of characters that first set out in the Chinese classic Journey to the West.

First of course, there is Monkey himself.

Sun Wukong, or as he preferred to be called in the story, Great Sage Equal of Heaven, was the arrogant and impossibly powerful Monkey King.

In this version, we see Monkey re-imagined as a steampunk hero, complete with bionic leg.

He is followed by Pigsty.

Pigsty has also been given a steampunk recreation, with the most notable change being his trusty rake weapon now transformed into some sort of pneumatic harpoon gun.

They are joined by Tzandi, the one-time river demon of the original epic.

Tzandi's model speaks to her nautical origins, with her clothes flowing about her while she rides some sort of robo-fish. Her model definitely has the most motion of the group.

Finally, we have Tricia Harker, the re-imagining of the monk Tripitaka who Monkey and his friends are tasked to protect.

It appears that this version is more than capable of taking care of herself. There is a confidence to her stance, that combined with her gun suggests she's not about to let Monkey and co have all the fun.

This band of travellers is now available from Demented Games' webstore.

Can we all watch 1970's Monkey now?
