Warning: This game is canon.

Ever wanted to play a post-apocalyptic game where you save the world as “Sir Charles” himself?

Welcome to the world of Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa, and it’s newly announced sequel: The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 – Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie – Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa.

Breathe. Okay. That was’s a mouthful. We’ll just call it Barkley 2: Revenge of Cuchulainn for now.

Yet another franchise being funded through Kickstarter, the Hoopz Barkley SaGa is a humorous action RPG that takes players through a dystopian New York cyber-apocalypse where Basketball has been outlawed after an all-powerful “Chaos Dunk” destroyed Manhattan and threatened to unbalance the world.

Where the first game followed a fictional Barkley, his son Hoopz, and their allies evading capture by the B-Ball Removal Department (headed by former friend and baller Michael Jordan), the sequel will be putting players into the shoes of X114JAM9, “an amnesiac baller with no recollection of his past and no concept of his incredible b-ball destiny,” who must evade the evil A.I. Cuchulainn, his would-be captor and “the ancient nemesis of all ballers, hoopsters, slammers and jammers.”
