We recently stumbled upon the trailer for a bizarre new RPG called Bumpy Legend from indie studio Gamewings Studio. The game is set in a mechanically gifted kingdom where everybody gets around in bumper (also known as dodgem) cars. So instead of wielding a +6 sword of kickarse, you bump and crash into opponents while hooning around the top-down environments. We haven't played the game yet, but it's obviously a bit of a silly notion and the developer has fun with the idea rather than playing it with a straight face. However, we're not 100% sure if the voice-over dude in the game's announcement trailer is part of the joke, or battling on bravely. His awesome accent makes for one of the great voice-overs of all time. Check it out for yourself below.
The game itself seems to be on limited release at present - we found it on the New Zealand App Store for starters. It's free, and this link will update automatically when your region's App Store puts the game on sale.
We're not sure if this means we have to create a new category for our ABCs of RPGs encyclopaedia.
