Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden 2 – Shut up and Kickstarter
Barkely Shut Up and Jam Gaiden 2 – The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 – Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie – Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa is on Kickstarter right now.
You see the full title for the sequel to Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden 2 up there? Yeah, I’m not writing it again, so enjoy it up at the top of the page. Still, I’m excited about Barkley 2 from Tales of Game’s (sic), since the first one (which is one of the best indie RPGs I have ever played, from it’s over-the-top setting to it’s better-than-they-have-any-right-to-be turn-based combat mechanics). That ridiculous (and brilliant) story looks like it will continue on into Barkley 2 from what is on the Kickstarter page. Let me give you a brief taste from that write-up: “The year is 666X. A powerful youngster, wise beyond his years, awakens from a B-Ball induced coma aboard the mysterious dwarf space ziggurat Necron 7, held captive by the Malevolent A.I. Cuchulainn. With no memory of who he is or where he came from, he adopts the identity of X114JAM9. . .”
While the story is consistent with the first Barkley Shut of and Jam Gaiden, the gameplay sounds like it will be quite different. The game is built around the idea of making choices at different times mean different things, with an open world that changes as you explore it. Gone are the turn-based battles, as well, replaced by Legend of Zelda-style combat with guns that are randomized in a way that sounds a lot like, say, Borderlands. Barkley 2 has already passed its funding goal, and the devs are, needless to say, pleased with promises for the future: “We honestly did not expect this to reach our goal in less than a day, so we were caught a little off-guard, but we’ve got some very good stuff in the works that we think you will be excited about.” If you want to know more about Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden 2 you can head over to Kickstarter where you can pre-order the game for $10 and see a couple of screenshots for the game.
