Barkley 2, the crowdfunded sequel to free 2008 RPG, Barkley, Shut Up & Jam: Gaiden, has a new live-action trailer lampooning one of 2015's most scrutinised video game reveals.
While this comedy sequel's trailer doesn't contain any real gameplay, it seems like a more honest encapsulation of what the game is trying to do - spoof Japanese RPGs - than most actual gameplay trailers.
For the uninitiated, Barkley, Shut Up & Jam: Gaiden was a bats*** insane fan-made game lampooning RPGs and tacky 90s product placement and celebrity cameos. It followed the exploits of famed NBA player Charles Barkley in the year 2053 after an event called the Chaos Dunk triggered the apocalypse. Framed for performing such a devastating dunk, Barkley and his son Hoopz had to go into hiding from the Michael Jordan's militia, the B-Ball Removal Department, and clear the Barkley name.
The game you've all been waiting for, 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 - or Barkley 2 for short - has found massive success on Kickstarter where it surpassed its $35,000 goal in less than a day. Its current total is at $39,444 and climbing.
Physicists got it wrong. Atoms, electrons, quarks - all that stuff is basically sound, but the theory goes further. Much further. In actual fact, the most fundamental particle in our universe is...the basketball (or 'b-ball'). Every material on earth is, at the initial level, constructed from b-balls. Carbon is b-balls. The blood flowing through our b-ball veins is made of b-balls. Every star in our cosmos is b-ball in origin. Understand this, and you may begin to understand Barkley, Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden.
