Utter Nonsense From Nerds

The GGB is exactly what it sounds like. A bunch of nerds out to have a good time and talk about nerdy things. Video games, Movies, Comics, Television, hell even wacky videos. Just come hang around and listen to us be idiots. 

Jay and Silent Bob Game Announced

Developer Interabang Entertainment announced today a Fig campaign to fund Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch. It will be a 2-D beat-‘em-up game in the style of Double Dragon and Streets of Rage.

Jay and Bob will be stuck in a massive mall looking for their loyal customers and have to battle their way through foes. It will feature a unique combo system which they are dubbing Convo-Combo Combat. It involves dialogue queues that you sync between Jay and Bob to create Yo-mama style jokes that add to fist and kick attacks. This seems fitting for a game based in the Smith genre, where almost 85% of his movies are about the dialogue.

This isn’t Interabang’s first entry into this style game. They have previously released other side-scrolling brawlers such as Shinobi Ninja Attacks and Super Comboman. They say that Kevin Smith’s movies were an inspiration throughout the making of those games and always wanted to make a Jay and Silent Bob game.

The team at Interabang are launching on Fig, a crowdfunding platform from former Double Fine COO Justin Bailey. Fig is different in the fact that investors have the ability to become a stakeholder in the project.  Chronic Blunt Punch will accept accredited investment as well as unaccredited reservations, alongside traditional rewards.

I’m tempted to be excited about this game. I love me some Kevin Smith. What about you guys?
