Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden 2 Announced

Much to my joy, the developer of one of my favorite RPG’s, Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, announced a sequel to the game: 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.

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 and sets off into the Post-Cyberpocalyptic Wasteland in search of the enigmatic Cyberdwarf, the only one who can reveal to him the terrible truth behind his forgotten past and make sense of his harrowing future.

The announcement promises “a Barkley 2 Kickstarter campaign later this month”, which should be worth checking out. What’s even more worth checking out is the original Barkley Shut up and Jam!: Gaiden.

It’s a comedic role playing game where you take the role of Charles Barkley, the last B-baller on earth after the great B-ball purge. To say any more would ruin the set up of the game, you really just need to check it out yourself. Don’t be deterred by it’s graphics or anything else about it; Barkley Shut Up and Jam is both an incredibly funny game, and at the same time, a very good game.
