The lights are on
When I first saw the box art for the upcoming Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!, I didn't know what the hell I was looking at. Some weird marshmallow guy is riding on a dead dog thing, and the Snow Miser from The Year Without A Santa Claus is hanging out behind a fat hooker in the background. Upon reading the press release for the game, I only understand slightly more.
You see, Adventure Time is apparently a show on Cartoon Network. According to the press release, the plot of the game is as follows:
In the first licensed Adventure Time video game, Finn and Jake wake up one morning to find their trash stolen by the Ice King. Jake couldn’t care less about half-eaten bananas, crumpled up burrito wrappers, and old chicken diapers – but when they find out the Ice King is using their stolen goods to construct a Garbage Princess, the heroes embark on a fantastical adventure to teach him a lesson!
It goes on to promise an "action-adventure experience" as players lead Finn and Jake through the Land of Ooo in their quest to defeat the Ice King. The game is being developed by WayForward, and it's heading to both DS and 3DS this fall.
