Twisted Pixel is quickly becoming my favorite game developer after The Maw and ‘Splosion Man. Their next game is Comic Jumper, coming out for Xbox Live on October 6, 2010 for 1200 Microsoft Points, and I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while.
In Comic Jumper, you play Captain Smiley, the star of a failing comic book, one that just can’t keep its readers interested anymore. In a desperate bid to stay relevant and draw in an audience, Smiley loans himself out to take part in other comics. Over the course of the game, Captain Smiley will punch and shoot his way through four distinctly different comic worlds, including a modern comic style, silver age comics, fantasy comics, and manga, which each have a different look and feel.
