The Future of Interactive Entertainment Is Now
The Wavy Tube Man Cometh, To Windows 8 PCs and RT Tablets

December 10th, 2012 - Austin, TX – THE FUTURE...is here. The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles busts forth today on the Windows Store for Windows 8 PCs and RT tablets. Starring Wiley Wiggins (Dazed and Confused, Waking Life) as Future Buddy and Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo and Juliet) as Doc Lloyd, now you can take on the role of The Stranger and make your way through a sleepy little town where all is not what it seems.

Trouble's a brewin' in this little slice of the west, and it's up to you to send that trouble back to whence it came. You'll need to keep your wits keen and your trigger finger ready to decide who warrants swift cowboy justice with a mere tap of the screen or click of the mouse. Timeless characters, elite acting, crafted dialogue, and action-packed action await you.

One would think that a production of such quality would command a steep price, but we've got news for you. Through the magic of digital technology, we're able to bring this fine production to you for a mere 149 cents (that's $1.49 American). Kaufman, an expert in all things low-cost says, "Microsoft never returns my calls about letting me direct a Halo movie in New Jersey. But Twisted Pixel brought The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles to Windows 8 as a Trojan horse to get my face in front of Steve Ballmer. Steve, call me!"

For more information on how the Wavy Tube Man Chronicles came to be, check out The Gunstringer blog. For the official launch trailer, please visit our YouTube Channel here. Go to the Windows 8 Store and get your copy of the Wavy Tube Man Chronicles today!
