Action Henk hitting Steam Early Access on June 18

No, not the one from Dexter's Laboratory

Look! It's Action Hank! I mean, Action Henk! Man, for a minute there I thought we were talking about Dexter's favorite action figure from Dexter's Laboratory back in the day. We're actually talking a speedrunner/platformer that's crashing into Steam Early Access on June 18. The frenetic toy-stravaganza looks to combine the best of games like Joe Danger and Trials: Evolution.

Action Henk is "the most beloved action figure of all time" who's totally out of shape and wants to come back with a vengeance to prove himself. RageSquid's playful nod to those simple childhood days spent sending figures hurting through the air and through loop-de-loops will run you $9.99 and will release for PC, Mac, and Linux. Looks like there'll be plenty of opportunities for speedrunners to get their jollies in. I'll probably give it a go, too.
