Pre-E3: What’s new with Comic Jumper

After falling in love with The Maw and ‘Splosion Man, I’m pretty much open to whatever Twisted Pixel Games is currently slaving away at. These days, that’d be Comic Jumper: The Adventures of Captain Smiley. In an effort to get into our brains before the carnage of E3 begins, a number of announcements have been made.

Comic Jumper, in case you hadn’t heard, is presented in a few various styles that mimic real-life comics. The third and fourth styles — the Silver Age of comics (“The Improbable Paper Pals”) and manga (“Cutie Cutie Kid Cupids”) — have been revealed.

The former can be seen here, and above in video form; we’ll hear more on the latter during E3 proper. To get a good idea of how Comic Jumper plays — and how the hilarious cut scenes play out — seriously, check out the video.

Lastly, and this is really cool (to me, at least), you can earn one single- and one multiplayer level for ‘Splosion Man through Comic Jumper. This add-on content comes in addition to other freebies: Gamerpics, Avatar accessories, and a premium Xbox 360 theme.

To quote Miguel Ferrer in RoboCop, “I f**king love that guy!”
