According to the New York Daily News, Shaquille O’Neal is seeking redemption with his new “Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn” video game.
The former player released an original fighting game in 1994, but failed as it was considered the worst game ever made, though Shaq disagrees,
“I don’t think it was the worst,” said O’Neal. “When you talk about the worst, you’ve got to talk about sales. I actually sold a lot of games, but when I did the first ‘Shaq-Fu,’ that was at the end of analog right before digital came out. It wasn’t a bad game. It wasn’t a good game, but it wasn’t awful.”
Moreover, O’Neal believes this new project is well thought out,
“Shaq Fu” funders who donate $15 on the game’s Indiegogo site will receive a copy of the game, while those who donate big bucks will be granted various prizes and opportunities, such as $400 for admission to a “Shaq-Fu” launch party; $600 for O’Neal to record an outgoing voicemail message; $3,000 for a size 22 sneaker signed by O’Neal; and $15,000 for lunch and a pick-up basketball game at one of O’Neal’s houses.
