Pow! This is exciting enough for me to shed all notions of adulthood. I just set fire to a pile of bills and have squeezed into some distressingly tight shorts. Join me? Adventure Time, the ridiculously good Cartoon Network show, will finally be turned into a PC game. Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW!, is a sequel to the handheld-only action platformer Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!. It’ll be a four-player co-op game, set deep in a Candy Kingdom dungeon.
It’s not the first time an Adventure Time game has landed on the PC, though. Show creator Pendleton Ward hosted an Adventure Time Game Jam that had over 100 entries, though all of those are distinctly non-canon and hastily made, which seems like the perfect way to capture Adventure Time’s madeupness. But back to this game, which so far only exists in this paragraph below:
In a completely new storyline and adventure and featuring the voices of the show’s most popular characters, fans will have to save the Candy Kingdom by exploring the mysteries surrounding a massive Secret Royal Dungeon deep below the Land of Ooo. Select from an assortment of fan-favorite characters from the show, including Finn, Jake, Marceline, Cinnamon Bun, and more, and team up with your friends in four-player co-operative multiplayer as the Adventure Time world comes to life.
Which doesn’t tell us much. I refuse to speculate, because I can never tell what the hell is going to happen in Adventure Time. But a show that’s hugely inspired by gaming should be able to come up with something interesting to do.
Can I get a Jake gif?
Here’s a exclusive peek at the soundtrack.
