Comic Jumper overlooked at E3. Help put that right by watching the trailer

There are so many games to wade through at E3 that it's inevitable some get lost in the mucky mess of it all. However, I was particularly dismayed to notice that we at GamesRadar had completely failed to write anything whatsoever on Comic Jumper: The Adventures of Captain Smiley. Never heard of it? That's because we're not telling you about it enough! It's our fault.

As someone that loves developer Twisted Pixel's previous XBLA games - The Maw and Splosion Man! (seriously, Splosion Man! was one of my most favouritest games of 2009) - I personally feel very bad about not spreading the vibe for Comic Jumper. So, yes, you should have seen this trailer last week, but please take the time to watch it now if you haven't already done so.

Why Microsoft didn't feature Comic Jumper at its E3 conference is beyond me. It's an XBLA exclusive. It's not a sequel. It's got nothing to do with Kinect. It would have made the whole soul-crushing affair much less miserable.

Anyway, Comic Jumper - sorry you were temporarily neglected while we all rushed about frantically firing out words for games like Zelda and Halo and Killzone. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again.

    Maybe the fact "it's not a sequel and it's got nothing to do with Kinect" is why it wasn't mentioned at the MS conference. The game looks fun and quirky though, and the different comic styles look cool.

    Price wise it'll most likely be 1200 pts; seems to be the new standard. Looks totally worth it though.

    Buying this right away, i loved the maw and splosion man so much
  • Tomkins - June 23, 2010 12:57 p.m.

    Any ideas as to the price? That looks like something I'll have to get.
