Abobo’s Big Adventure: The Official Trailer!

[Click here to watch in full resolution]

Crank your speakers up, batten down the hatches, and buckle your safety belts - the official trailer for our Abobo's Big Adventure game is finally here! I'm almost as excited about the release of this trailer as I am about the upcoming release of the game itself. This trailer gives me chills every time I watch it. CHILLS! It must be because it's like seeing the culmination of a project that we've worked on for years and years... and now the release of our big game is right around the corner. Make no mistake about it - this is the biggest project we've ever worked on and it's everything we dreamed of having in a single 8-bit NES-style game. I hope it really shows in this trailer.

Speaking of the trailer, I have to extend a huge thanks to my good friend Brad Webb. Without him, this extremely professional trailer would've never happened. We wanted to make this a trailer worthy of the Abobo name, and Brad absolutely delivered. Now I owe him an expensive dinner... I sure hope he likes In-N-Out Burger.

Watch it once. Watch it twice. Watch it a thousand times. Please help spread the word, because this is a free game made by the fans for the fans, and soon you'll all get to play through the entire thing. All hail Abobo!

I have made threads about this on Digital Press and the Shmups Forum. This looks absolutely fucking incredible. I hope it's actually a pretty long game.

Absolutely brilliant.

I can't believe I've made this reference twice in one week (also twice in one lifetime) because I feel like a tool but:

Jizzed. in my pants.

I can't even remember what the other one was this is so awesome.

Fantastic! It's as if Abobo himself is personally smashing my eyeballs into a fine eye-goo.

‘Abobo’s Big Adventure’ Trailer – Oh… My….. God…. | (Guest) on 11/09/2011 10:56 pm

[...] Abobo, the big bald thug from Double Dragon (the video game and very regrettable live- action film) is one of those classic 8-bit goons that time forgot, but here is….fucking up a horde of thugs from “Kung-Fu Master”, the old man from Legend of Zelda and Death from Castlevania, among hundreds of other NES characters. Yes, this is a real game! It’s coming, for free, from our new favorite friends at [...]

Just when I thought it was the most awesome ever, it gets even more awesome.

"Words fail to express how much awesomeness this contains. If you played the NES, you must watch this. My brain is still reeling from the sheer 'F*ck-Yeah!' Of it all."

Abobovania? Contrabobo? ABOBO WRESTLING? My life is incomplete until I have this game.


Bobby (Guest) on 11/10/2011 6:47 am

OMG, this trailer is amazing and cannot wait til it is playable. The 8 and 16 bit era still rule the console world and this is just more proof of that! Great job guys and thanks for making this!

Phenomenal job guys! Saw this over at Topless Robot. If the game is half as good as the trailer, which I'm absolutely positive it will be, then tons of traffic and press should continue to come I-Mockery's way.

That is best compliment I have ever received.


James (Guest) on 11/10/2011 7:52 pm

That was truly amazing! With my gimpy wrists I'll probably be reduced to watching someone else play, though. I'm still hoping I can get a cyborg arm one of these days just for playing games like this.

I am excited about the game just like everybody else, but I have some technical questions.

1. I know the game is flash-based, but will it be downloadable? Playing a game, especially a long one, inside a browser presents some challenges.

2. Can we remap the controls? I'm not asking for joystick support or anything I just want to know what I'm going to have to go through to get it working on one of my arcade machines or a gamepad.

Thanks and I look forward to the release!

To everybody - thanks so much for the compliments on the trailer, it really means a lot to me. I'm seriously overwhelmed by the amount of sites that have been covering it over the past three days... simply amazing. Can't wait for you to see all the crazy things we've put into the game that don't even appear in the trailer!

HowardC - At first, the game will be in-browser only. That said, it automatically saves your progress since it is long for a web game. When you beat a level, it is permanently unlocked on a special level select screen so you can always go back and replay it or pick up where you left off. You certainly don't have to play it all at once in your browser. That said, we will eventually make a free downloadable version as well for anybody who wants to play it locally.

In regards to the controls, you CAN play it with a gamepad. We will have a tutorial explaining how to do that using a USB controller (preferably an original NES one) and a free program called Joy2Key. That's how we originally demoed the game at Comic-Con before we built the arcade cabinet for it. The game is meant to be played with a NES controller, but you can certainly play it with your keyboard too.


Alden (Guest) on 11/12/2011 9:02 pm

I know probably you get asked this a lot. But any ETA on the game release?. Trailer looked neat, and enjoyed the beta test levels, so really eager to finally play the game. (Also asking for a downloadable version, if possible)

-RoG- on 11/13/2011 4:48 am

Alden - Plan is to have it out in 2011. It's November now, so I guess that means the game must be coming out in the near future. :)

I like the scene were the Abobos cry, hahaha

Wow. I had no idea what to expect. I will say that I am impressed, and kind of excited to play. It's like an all-star game of old nintendo titles, (Contra, Zelda, Mega-Man, etc.) Great idea.
