PAX 09: The Maw developer announces Comic Jumper

0

The Maw and 'Splosion Man developer Twisted Pixel Games announced its next downloadable title -- the studios’ third original IP -- at PAX earlier this afternoon. It’s called Comic Jumper and you can get your first look at the title in the teaser trailer above.

As you’ll notice, the teaser is a true teaser -- nothing substantial is revealed. But we can draw a couple of things from the footage, its narration, and from Twisted Pixel’s comments at PAX. The game stars two protagonists -- who hate each other, apparently -- in one muscled shell. A hero named Smiley Face dominates the body, while the cute and prickly Star lives on his chest.

As the trailer says, players will be able to run, jump and shoot across different comic book-inspired levels. As Joystiq mentions, there’s a possibility that the gameplay may change as the books do. We are told in the video that this is “an experience unlike any other.” We don’t think simple side-scrolling fits the bill.

Comic Jumper
doesn’t have a release date, platform or price.
