Here’s one for you Askewniverse fans.
Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch has just been announced on crowd funding site Fig. The game is looking for $400,000 to finish production, and the Fig platform allows you to invest in the game, so you could actually make money off the title if you put in enough money.
The game is being described as “a colorful Side-scrolling 2.5D over-the-top multiplayer brawler”, and to give you ideas, here is a couple pictures of what it will supposedly look like.
The story is outlined as:
Jay and Silent Bob’s customers are gone and they’re on a mission to find out why. Their search soon leads them to the sparkling new mega-mall which is almost a city unto itself complete with apartments, restaurants, hospitals, and schools. On the surface, the mall seems a Utopia. But as our heroes soon discover once a would-be patron of this paradise enters they find they can’t make their way out. Before long the power of the place mesmerizes them and they no longer remember their lives before becoming permanent citizens of The Galleria. Who’s responsible for this diabolical labyrinth?! What do they want?! Will Jay and Silent Bob ever find the Orange Julius?! Only time will tell…
And here is the pitch video:
So, go put down some money if you want to see this happen I guess. I like Kevin Smith enough, and I think the artstyle here is drop dead gorgeous, so I don’t see why this shouldn’t be made. Hell, I’d want this just to see if they could maintain the quality of art here.
