'Splosion Man Dev's 'Comic Jumper' Revealed

BOOM widget 95867 'Splosion Man and The Maw developer Twisted Pixel has revealed its latest side-scrolling comic action caper, Comic Jumper, in style.

No fast-cut montages and 'bullshots' here, no no, TP offers a selection of screenshots, sound and music samples, concept art and a full ten-minute play-through of the demo it'll be showing at the PAX East festival later this month. Now that's how you do it.

Comic Jumper will see hapless hero Captain Smiley entering different comic books to alter their plots, with the visual style shifting as he jumps. Last year's announcement trailer teased looks including Rob Liefeld's bulging veins and Frank Miller's Sin City.

Twisted Pixel has still yet to announce platforms, a release date or pricing for Comic Jumper but an Xbox Live Arcade release seems inevitable at least.
