Turns out that late '90s stoner icons Jay and Silent Bob will potentially, assuming they hit the $400,000 target, get their own game. Called Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, it'll be one of those 2.5D action beat-em-up things that used to litter places called 'Timezone' and 'Intencity'.
Coming from Interabang Entertainment, the game will take the well-known comic duo from Kevin Smith films like Mallrats and Chasing Amy, and put them in their very own videogame adventure.
We think Kevin’s movies are irreverently dope. During the design of our first game, we often watched the movies back-to-back like Drake post-Degrassi. The iconic characters, hilarious dialogue, and the sheer surreality of the Askew-niverse got us through the rough patches of development hell and life's struggles. We cut our teeth in combat-based game development and always thought it would be amazing to see Jay and Silent Bob in a game like the ones we make. We often wondered, "Why hasn't anybody done this game yet?"
With the answer probably being something along the lines of, "Well, probably because we all forgot about Jay and Silent Bob after that one movie they starred in 15 years ago." But nevertheless, the artwork definitely looks cool. And the premise lends itself to comedy, something which is sorely lacking in a lot of games.
