The sequel to 2008's independent RPG hit Barkley: Shutup and Jam Gaiden -- conveniently named 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 (and alternately Barkley 2) -- has hit Kickstarter.
More than that, it's cleared its $35,000 goal within 24 hours. While it's a relatively small amount compared to some projects out there, it's impressive nonetheless, and great news for fans of a relatively little known series.
Barkley 2, if you can't tell from its full name, is both odd and hilarious, and according to developer Tales of Game's, the quality of humor will match the quality of gameplay. Its premise is as follows...
The year is 666X. A powerful youngster, wise beyond his years, awakens from a B-Ball induced coma aboard the mysterious dwarf space ziggurat Necron 7, held captive by the Malevolent A.I. Cuchulainn. With no memory of who he is or where he came from, he adopts the identity of X114JAM9 and sets off into the Post-Cyberpocalyptic Wasteland in search of the enigmatic Cyberdwarf, the only one who can reveal to him the terrible truth behind his forgotten past and make sense of his harrowing future.
If that doesn't sell you, well, I don't know what else to say.
Hit the source to give. Give, man, giiiiiive!
