Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden sequel heading to Kickstarter


We get a new Call of Duty game every year, but how often do we get a continuation of 1994's Barkley Shut Up and Jam!? Indie dev Tales of Game's Studios is trying to up that frequency with a soon-to-be-announced Kickstarter for (deep breath) 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.

Tales of Game's is responsible for Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, the 2008 fanmade RPG parody of the original SNES basketball game. The studio says it will be aiming to secure funding for the story of "X114JAM9, an amnesiac baller with no recollection of his past and no concept of his incredible b-ball destiny." Players will explore a non-linear world and find out if they "have the courage, vigor and sagacity to slam with the best." Probably?

The Kickstarter is set to go live later this month, and Tales of Game's promises more information on its Twitter account soon. We hope Charles Barkley is involved in this silliness, if only so we can see someone explaining the whole thing to him.
