Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden Sequel Announced
It has an awfully long title, otherwise I'd put it here.
11.14.12 - 4:56 PM

Tales of Game's Studios announced today not only that 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 in the works, but that a Kickstarter campaign to back the project will also be forthcoming. If you're unfamiliar with the first game Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden was released in 2008, a freeware PC action RPG that managed to merge - you guessed it - basketball and RPG gameplay. Its extremely-long titled sequel picks up where the first left off, with the player taking control of X114JAM9, a protagonist who conveniently does not remember his past, but is now tasked with saving the galaxy, the Post-Cyberocalypse, and of course, 'b-balldom' (seeing as basketball was actually outlawed in the game's world).

Check out the full announcement below, and be sure to stay tuned for the Kickstarter link for 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 when it's launched later this month. (...maybe I should just used the acronym instead, but even that's longer than many game titles.)
