Not in pog form.
With both Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes on board, Interabang Entertainment is developing a game around Jay and Silent Bob. The game, 'Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch' is beat 'em up (or in very modern terms, 'Castle Crasher' style brawler), and the setting sees Jay and Silent Bob trapped inside in a mega super shopping mall a la the animated 'Clerks' series.
Naturally, the game will offer cooperative play. Current platforms plans include PC and Mac, but the PS4 and Xbox One are possibilities.
As of this morning, 'Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch' is currently the part of funding project over at Fig.co, and the funding goal is $400,000. The campaign allows for both traditional backer rewards as well as the Fig investment structure. (See the campaign here.)
From Interabang Entertainment,
In Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, players get into a tag team combo fight fest and wreak havoc on their foes with fists, feet, and the magic of self-esteem-destroying jibes while embarking on a mission to find their long-lost pot customers trapped in an Orwellian mega super shopping mall. The mall turns out to be a Utopian labyrinth with apartments, restaurants, hospitals and everything that a post-World War II nuclear bunker would contain—with a candy coating of fun.
Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch is a colorful side-scrolling 2.5D, over-the-top multiplayer tag-team brawler whose action escalates as the player travels deeper into the mall of purgatory. The team is creating the narrative through environment, design, combat and a new conversation combat system called the Convo Combo mode. This mechanic changes the dynamics of enemy showdowns through cutting insults combined with an intricate facial animation system that bonds dynamic fighting with timed phrase matching. This delivers a completely different kind of storytelling experience. Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch also includes co-op play, where players finish each other’s combos, and create havoc in the world’s largest mall.
