Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden Sequel Gets Funded Super Fast

Barkley Gaiden 2

Finally, a game with heart.

If you thought the Hoopz Barkely saga could be contained to one game, you’re both sadly mistaken and incredibly stupid…this beast is a multi-parter. For those that have no idea what I’m talking about, Barkley, Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden was a game about Charles Barkley surviving in a cyberpocalypse while trying to clear his name for a horrific crime he didn’t commit. That game, an RPG developed by Tales of Games, now has an action RPG sequel in the works called The Magical Realms of Tir Na Nog, Escape from Necron 7, Revenge of Cuchulainn: Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley Saga and it has blown past its Kickstarter goal of $35,000.00 in about 2 days.

Chapter 2 is quite the departure from the first game as it is more of an action RPG and looks to feature guns (supposedly in a very Borderlands like way) as opposed to the b-ball themed magic powers that Chapter 1 featured. Nonetheless, it looks awesome and I’m glad to see real art is getting as much Kickstarter funding as some of the other pitches on that site. My faith in the world has been restored.
