With less than 12 hours until its crowdfunding campaign on Fig comes to an end, Interabang Entertainment has successfully secured its initial $400,000 for its new video game, Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch.
Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch is described as side-scrolling 2.5D, over-the-top multiplayer tag-team brawler whose action escalates as the player travels deeper into the mall of purgatory. The team is creating the narrative through environment, design, combat and a new conversation combat system called the Convo Combo mode.
In Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, players get into a tag team combo fight fest and wreak havoc on their foes with fists, feet, and the magic of self-esteem-destroying jibes while embarking on a mission to find their long-lost pot customers trapped in an Orwellian mega super shopping mall. The mall turns out to be a Utopian labyrinth with apartments, restaurants, hospitals and everything that a post-World War II nuclear bunker would contain—with apparently a candy coating of fun.
Sharing his thoughts about the campaign’s success, Interbang Entertainment co-founder, Justin Woodward, stated:
“The outpouring of fan support has been truly humbling. Thanks to the Fig community, we will have the creative freedom to create an epic gaming adventure that blends the wit and humor of Kevin Smith movies with fast-paced, co-op gaming action.”
Smith also commented:
“We’ve breathed life into Jay and Silent Bob in movies, TV and comics for more than 20 years, and now we can tell their story through an interactive medium. But what is a video game?”
“I’m stoked that the Jay and Silent Bob community mobilized to support this game through their pledges and investment interest. I’m equally excited to see that with the View Askewniverse extending into games, that the fans who made this possible have an opportunity to profit from the game’s success.”
Those who backed the project will receive various awards, including premium digital goodies, new action figures based on designs from the game, signed custom Kevin Smith-style jerseys and a walk-on in Kevin Smith’s next movie.
