The Hobbit coming to Cut the Rope?
In what may turn out to be some very surprising news, ZeptoLab maker of Cut the Rope looks like they may be putting a Hobbit style twist into an upcoming game. Yesterday the developers tweeted an image that’s more than a little intriguing as Om Nom appears to look like he’s straight out of LOTR.
Any that knows LOTR or The Hobbit can clearly see that Om Nom is in a cave holding what looks to be the One Ring. There’s also an Elven looking sword in his hands so it’s pretty safe to say we’re looking at something Lord of the Rings related. The tweet that came along with the picture simply says “Tell us what you think of Om Nom’s costume… can you guess what he’s dressed up for? We’ll tell you tomorrow!” Curious? I sure am…There has been no word yet on what lies in store for Om Nom, but “if” it’s a LOTR themed game there’s a certain section of gamers that may just spontaneously combust, it could happen. We got an Angry Birds Star Wars tie-in so doing The Hobbit with Cut the Rope wouldn’t be unheard of, and it would certainly be interesting. Just think about it, Om Nom may have replaced his love of Candy with an unquenchable love for the One Ring…count me in. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Update- Scratch that… looks like Zepto dressed up On Nom for the Oscars. While cute, it’s a bit disappointing as a LOTR cut the rope game would have been sweet.
