The lights are on
I've been eager for every new detail I can unearth on upcoming downloadable game Comic Jumper since my first look back in March. With the game nearing completion and expected to be shown off next week at E3, we got a ton of new details, including information on the last two of the game's four comics and surprising news about Splosion Man, developer Twisted Pixel's previous release.
Check out the info, new screens, and an extended gameplay video below.
As Comic Jumper progresses, protagonist Captain Smiley will jump between different styles of comic books. The team had previously revealed a traditional, modern superhero comic and a Frank Frazetta-inspired barbarian fantasy comic. Now we know the final two styles: a Silver Age superhero book (complete with a goofy sidekick) titled "The Improbable Paper Pals" and a manga known as Cutie Cutie Kid Cupids.
Twisted Pixel also revealed a major bonus you'll get for downloading Comic Jumper: alongside a free Xbox theme and unlockable Avatar awards, a Comic Jumper purchase includes two exclusive levels for Splosion Man, one single-player and one multiplayer. This is a great way of rewarding fan loyalty, and very few developers fill their downloadable games with as many nice bonuses as Twisted Pixel.
At first I was a little bummed to hear that two of Comic Jumper's four styles are being taken up by superhero comics, but then I watched the extended gameplay video below. Do yourself a favor and check it out for a taste of how Twisted Pixel's sense of humor translates to the Silver Age.
I can't wait to play this game!
This looks pretty good. And the conversations made me laugh. I will check this game out.
Cannot wait to play this. Love TP.
This looks hilarious I'm gonna get it for sure.
This game is going to be so awesome, especially the manga comic.
I agree...Twisted Pixel has been awesome to it's fans. No other developer has treated players to more free stuff. I mean how many have even taken advantage of the *** Avatar Award system....? You could count them on one hand with fingers left over. PLUS Twisted's Splosion Man was friggin sweet, regardless.. I'll be looking for this when it comes out.
I REALLY wish this was coming out for PSN
A mixture of compelling and ugly in these screens o.o idk
You know I don't know if this is just me but I would much rather hear the other words for manure than a loud annoying horn and speaking of, the "FINE" thing is really really annoying. The humor is in there and the gameplay looks ok. Nothing as special as Splosion Man. Sorry to compare but oh well. "Whatever, just punch and kick."
That looks really awesome!
The dialogue was absolutely hilarious but the gameplay looks boring and repetitive. And I despised Splosion Man so I don't really care about the new levels so I guess I won't be getting this. Twisted Pixels game just aren't really my type.
I'm intrigued by this. I liked The Maw, and enjoyed the demo of Splosion Man despite never picking the full game up. This looks quite funny and fun to play.
