Last month, Kevin Smith and developer Intrabang started a crowdfunding campaign for Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch. The game takes Smith’s lovable drug dealing hetero lifemates to a brand new New Jersey mega-mall that is too good to be true. The game uses a 2D beat-em-up style and also has a unique dialogue system that allows Jay to use insults that will lower an opponents self-worth.
This morning the crowdfunding website Fig announced that the game had met its goal of $400,000, and a new goal was set for $420,000 that would add the ability to play as extra characters.
As of this posting the campaign had already surpassed its new goal and is just over $440,000, with over 2500 backers. Every person that donated to the campaign is automatically enrolled in a drawing to be in Smith’s next film. The Fig campaign page shows more rewards, game art and screenshots. Now that the funding goal has been met, players can expect Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
