Gunstringer's 'Wavy Tube Man Chronicles' coming to Windows 8


"The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles," the bizarre full-motion-video episode originally released as downloadable content for The Gunstringer, has been uncoupled for standalone release on Windows 8 PCs and tablets.

The Chronicles, which feature both a "Troma Team" credit and an acting role by Troma Studios co-founder Lloyd Kaufman (as "Doc Lloyd"), stars Wiley Wiggins as "Future Buddy." He joins your fight to protect a relatively Old West-ish town from Wavy Tube Man Jr., who has traveled back in time to prevent the death of his father, Wavy Tube Man.

The Windows 8 version will be released "soon" for $1.49, a price low enough that we can just buy it again and confirm we didn't imagine the existence of this thing the first time around.

The Future of Interactive Entertainment Coming to Windows Store
Twisted Pixel Waits with Anticipation for Calls from Cannes and Sundance

November 12th, 2012 - Austin, TX - Twisted Pixel Games proudly presents the future of interactive entertainment: The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles. Starring Wiley Wiggins (Dazed and Confused, Waking Life) as Future Buddy and Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo and Juliet) as Doc Lloyd, this new experience defies simple 20th century categorizations of "game" or "film." Video games don't have real horses or real big fires. Films don't allow viewers to choose who lives or dies. The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles has all those things, and a lot more.

The carefully crafted story of intrigue takes players on an adventure to find the nefarious Wavy Tube Man Jr., who has stolen a time machine to go to the past and prevent his father's death. Take control of destiny using mouse or touch-based targeting, shooting, and more against quick-drawing cowboys and heavily armed future warriors, chasing the villain through time as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

And there's more: Harness the new chapter select feature to go directly to your favorite scenes with no waiting. Explore the behind the scenes special features to discover the secrets of how epic Hollywood productions are made. Immerse yourself in the most lifelike visuals available on any platform, made possible by Twisted Pixel's advanced proprietary "graphiz" technology. No longer hindered by the limitations of polygons or math, the characters and worlds of wonder come to life before your very eyes.

Coming soon to the Windows Store for Windows 8 PCs and RT tablets at the stunningly low price of $1.49, The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles is less than 1/30th the price of old media like Halo 4 or the Twilight saga. Come to the future of interactive entertainment.
