Chili Con Carnage is an action/adventure third-person shooter video game. It was developed by Deadline Games and published by Sci Entertainment in Europe and by Eidos in North America. Its predecessor Total Overdose was released September 27, 2005. Chili Con Carnage is not actually a true sequel to Total Overdose, as it goes by a different title and has a story that has nothing to do with Total Overdose. Many reviews of the game classify it as a remake of Total Overdose for the PlayStation Portable.[citation needed]


The player character is Ramiro "Ram" Cruz, an athletic wisecracker. Ramiro, after witnessing his father Ernesto being murdered (along with some kittens, which were Ram's birthday present to his father) in a freak combine harvester accident, wants revenge on the culprits responsible.[1] The player fights with drug lords, corrupt bandits, femme fatales, crooked mercenaries, and ritualistic zombies. In between missions the player can choose to play mini games, in each of which the player is dropped right into the middle of a situation and must complete a number of moves (Fly on the Wall, Burrito Blast, Etc.) with a limited number of enemies, or beat a set score in a limited amount of time. There is no free-roaming option in the game.[1]
