Pour me a big ole cup of crazy. I called this game Barkley 2 out of fear that the actual title will send my blog crashing and burning in some sort of permalink anomaly. You see, its actual name is: 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. No, I’m not joking.
It’s a retro-nintendo-style RPG game that reminds me of the older Final Fantasy games. You play Hoopz, Charles Barkley’s amnesiac son who’s in search of the Cyberdwarf to learn about his forgotten past in a post-cyberpocalyptic world where basketball has been outlawed. Still not joking.
The project was released on Kickstarter yesterday and already met its goal. Check out the page for the latest news.
If you can’t wait until 2013, Barkley 2 is the sequel to Tales of Game’s Studios 2008 free-to-play game, Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. Download it and check out it.
