Barkley Gaiden is a role playing game and it's primary gameplay is in battles. Every ally you gain has unique attacks, skills, and defense abilities, and so do foes, resulting in a high tactics turn based battle system. Along the way you will also encounter puzzles and events that will test your meddle as you battle your way to bring peace to the post-cyberpocalypse.
The game takes place in 2053 at the post-cyberpocalyptic city of Neo New York. You play as Charles Barkley, a man who 12 years prior executed the "Chaos Dunk" that was the equivalent power of 7,000 Hiroshima bombs and killed millions. This led to an anti-b-ball movement, resulting in the great B-Ball Purge that caused the deaths of thousands of ballers in hopes of preventing any future forbidden jams. His life spared, Charles Barkley is now a shadow of his former self living in run down apartment with his son Hoopz.
This game was a collaboration with Tales of Games Studios. The official name is Tales of Game's Presents Chef Boyardee's Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa. The game took a little over a year to develop.
