Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch takes to Fig for funding

A Jay and Silent Bob video game is in the works and you can fund it through Fig.

The team at Interabang Entertainment are developing Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch which captures the “satire and irreverence” of the movies and the tone of the cancelled Clerks: The Animated Series.

It’s a side-scrolling 2.5D, multiplayer tag-team brawler full of self-esteem cutting jibes and the action escalates as the player travels through the mall of purgatory.

Here’s more on the storyline from the developers:

“In Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, players get into a tag team combo fight fest and wreak havoc on their foes with fists, feet, and the magic of self-esteem-destroying jibes while embarking on a mission to find their long-lost pot customers trapped in an Orwellian mega super shopping mall. The mall turns out to be a Utopian labyrinth with apartments, restaurants, hospitals and everything that a post-World War II nuclear bunker would contain—with a candy coating of fun.”

The game’s narrative develops through the environment, design, combat and a “conversation combat system” called the Convo Combo mode.

Using the conversation system, enemy showdowns will change when the player uses “cutting insults” combined with a facial animation system.

Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch also includes co-op allowing players to finish each other’s combos.

The Fig campaign kicked off today with $400K in funding needed and it’s open to investment through Game Shares. As of press time, the project has 70 backers who have pledged $18,433 toward the PC, PS4 and Xbox One game.

Rewards will range from “premium digital goodies and new action figures” based on designs from the game. Custom Kevin Smith-style jerseys and a walk-on in Kevin Smith’s next movie are also rewards.
