Laser-nipples!

Indie platformer Electronic Super Joy is receiving an expansion called Groove City next month and its premise sounds just as bizarre as that of main game.

"A giant robot stripper called JoJo has smashed Groove City! She's angry because Dr Swinger stole her laser-nipples," reads developer Michael Todd's description of the upcoming release. "Help JoJo reclaim her laser-nipples & defeat the evil plans of Dr. Swinger, with the help of Pope Boris the Super Sexy!"

So there's that. The original game, mind you, followed the journey of a silhouetted protagonist on a mission to take down the Groove Wizard, who stole our hero's butt. So strange plotlines and amazingly crude humor are just par for the course really. Oh, and the great gameplay and brilliant tunes don't appear to have skipped a beat either!
