Spider-Man 2 Devs Are Making: Energy Hook

I know how to make you want to spend money. Imagine if I told you the guy who wrote the rope-swinging for Spider-Man 2 was making a new game using the same mechanic. See! You want to spend money right now! You’ll have to wait, however, as the Kickstarter for Energy Hook has not yet started – that’s December 8th. But in the meantime, you can watch footage of the game in its prototype stage below, and start planning budgets to see how much of your bank can be pledged.

This is Jamie Fristrom, the man who invented the extremely loved swinging mechanic in Spider-Man 2. And it’s also Paul Whitehead, a man behind the art of the Spider-Man games, and many others. And they’re working on a game that combines Spidey-like thread-swinging with SSX race/tricks-ifying. You’d have to be dead to the core to not be at least interested in giving that a go. Here’s the early footage:

You can keep up with the progress at Happion Laboratories via their development blog. And you can see some super-early footage from May this year, here:
