Paradox Interactive have revealed a new trailer and website promoting The Showdown Effect, its upcoming multiplayer action platformer from Arrowhead Game Studios.

Those who love cheesy Hollywood blockbusters will get a kick out of the intentionally silly website. Visitors are not only urged to enjoy an endless array of movie one-liners, but have the chance to generate their own.

Paradox has also launched a video showcasing the game’s art style and animation design. Check that out right here:

Players can sign up to The Showdown Effect’s Closed Beta right here. A live stream event is also being held today, January 17, at 7pm GMT (11am PST). You can tune into that over at TwitchTV.
