Wii U port please....
Nice Pixel stuff!
Glad you're still looking forward to it! We're working really hard on the game and we'll definitely take your advice into consideration. We're sorry it's taking so long - when we made 3 times the money we asked for, the game became 10 times as big, but we're working hard on getting it done.
Guys, I'm really worried this game is going ot go the way of Duke Nukem Forever. My Bball dreams have been nightmares as of late, 0% slam dunk goodness.. Will we ever get to fight along side X114JAM9 and truly escape from corporate attitude?
In all seriousness, your updates on game mechanics are neat, but I'd really like to see more actual gameplay, perhaps even a playable demo (not if it adds another year to production though!!!)
Been there since Shut Up and Jam Gaiden, This true DOOM-MURDER HEAD is eagerly awaiting the release!!
Whenever I catch Frankie Coulombe streaming Barkley 2 artwork, I'm totally floored by how successfully you've duped this poor artist into giving you wonderfully animated, vibrant sprites (with animated dialogue portraits) for tertiary characters who would absolutely be recolored clones in any other game.
Anyway, it's looking like you're not going to hit your Q4 2014 target, but I just wanted to say I'd wait another two years if it meant that you guys actually fulfill your grand pipe dream vision for this game. Rock on, dudes.
Thank you Josh F. Beautiful
a hand slammed onto the alarm... a toothbrush dipped into a bowl of Surge™, such was another day of life in the post cyberpocalypse. But today wasn't like the others... the public ordinance was very clear. Violations couldn't be tolerated, he had to discipline the boy. But could a dad dunk his own son?
I'm sorry Shatterbrain! We're working hard!! Not sure if you're all aware, but we recently showed at the Tokyo Game Show!
m-maybe it'll only be 1 year late?
Greets. Working hard on the game as always, always pushing for more content and quests and inane bullshit. bort and chef are working on Brain City, the biggest town area in the game, bisse and Neonlare are making improvements to AI, enemies, under-the-hood mechanical stuff and our boy laz got DwarfNET up and running. I guess the biggest news is that we just implemented our Dark Souls-style autosave system. We'll try to post a bigger update soon, but we are always working.

A flicker of light..a gleam of gold on the Slam Dunk trophy, grandpa's eyes met the childrens' over their Ecto Coolers. "..and then they lived their days out in happiness, playing PIG and Lightning until sunset. The End." he concluded. "Will we get to play too grandpa? Just like your stories?" "Grandpa hasn't really played, they're just stories! Like the boogie man, or Ron Artest!" "But his troph..!" "Hush children...go to sleep," grandpa said calmly. So innocent they were.. spared the horrors his eyes had been forced to endure at their age. He collected the empty juice boxes and tried to empty his head of bball.
The crusty old man's eyes opened slowly. The layup had felt so real...but he knew it was only the stuff of his dreams now. He fondled the referee whistle token underneath his pillow, yearning for even the memory of a slam or jam to return to him. A dribble echoed off of the dirty hut's wall, but was it real? The old man hollered and hooted, blowing into the whistle and pump faking a phantom ball. Did he even remember who he was?
Just PC, Mac and Linux for now theweirdn8!!
You are doing God's work, Betty Crocker Moderator. Surely thou hath a place waiting for thee in heaven. Game on you beautiful sex magistrate...
Wii U port on it's way?
Ok, looking forward to it. Otakon is shaping up to be very legit, I'm excited to be there.
Hey Michael, I'm not exactly sure so let me get back to you on it, but we're going to have a larger space because we'll be doing a physical demo of our turn-based b-ball game.
Hey, I'm having trouble finding out where you guys are gonna be exactly at otakon. Are you just hanging out, do you have a booth in the dealer's room, what's up?
Updates please. Moar!
You're a great team of gamedevs TOG's.
It's hard to give a release date right now, Michael, but it won't be for a while. Things have been moving especially fast in the last few months, probably faster than at any other point in development, and we've done some really good work. We'll have an update soon!
Any estimate when it will be actually released?
On and off. PS - we're going to try to have an update soon! Last few months in particular have been very good. Game is coming together in a very cool way!!!
Chef is it true u have a mohawk now.
Q4 soon, superhyped to see some updates/teasers!
Which came first: Ranch, or Cool Ranch?
^.^/ the b-ball post apocalypse part 2 is almost upon us. May the power of guns and zaubers guide us!
Yep. We're working hard, made tons of progress in pretty much every area in the last few months, we should probably update soon.
Almost forgot about this, but then something reminded me. Might have been Shirobon's hit 'Regain Control'. Anyway: Time for an update!!
Well Josh, that's a hard question to answer without spoiling anything. Let's just say that trying to get in as much as we can without overstepping our bounds.
We all love the slams and jams, even if one is a bit lacking. Some of the best parts in the original game were cameo appearances of real ballers. I know it has been said that for legal reasons you can't go dropping names anywhere you please, understandable. Does this mean characters such as Vinceborg are no longer possible? Either way, I'm sure this game will dunk my mind into oblivion.
Haha, yes! We're working full-time on this bad boy like always. It's actually currently playable at GDC if you want to fork out $2000 or whatever for a ticket. We'll update soon!
Almost forgot about this game. Is this still slated for release?
Update pls ;__;
Anyone interested in SNATCHER or Policenauts over here?
This is a kickstarter from some of the same guys who worked on those games and it really could use some help. Take a look if you're interested in adventure-style games!
How will the news of Space Jam 2's announcement affect the Barkley series?
Hey you all were featured on this article at Game Maker blog: http://gamemakerblog.com/2014/02/12/list-of-successfully-funded-gamemaker-kickstarter-projects/
Yinz Gonna be at PAX East?
Right now we're working on the end of the game, the main story stuff. Pretty soon we'd like the game to be completable from start to finish. We've also got a new programmer, Neonlare, working on enemy AI too. Plugging away every day really doesn't make for very interesting updates, but the game is coming together and I'm pretty pleased with what we've accomplished so far.
Any updates coming soon?
It's been a year. I thought the pain would diminish, but it has only intensified with time. Every day I'm filled with pain and soul-crushing regret. Every day that I wake up and can't bear to open my eyes, knowing that the bodypillow I clutch is not emblazoned with Cyberdwarf's gentle yet stern visage. Please. Please. PLEASE let me increase my backer level and claim my reward - nay, my birthright.
I backed this game a year ago, and just today I realized that the thing he is holding on the homepage is a basketball...
That's a good Q, Shans and that's a big part of what we're working on right now. I'm sure we'll post something about zaubers, classes and how they work when we've got something really solid.
Do you guys think we'll see some Zaubers and classes before the end of the year? My hype levels compel me to bother you with such questions.
Please let this be true my heart can't take any more betrayal
We will make it a priority, Evan.
