THE FUTURE…is here. The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles busts forth today on the Windows Store for Windows 8 PCs and RT tablets. Starring Wiley Wiggins (Dazed and Confused,Waking Life) as Future Buddy and Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo and Juliet) as Doc Lloyd, now you can take on the role of The Stranger and make your way through a sleepy little town where all is not what it seems.
Trouble’s a brewin’ in this little slice of the west, and it’s up to you to send that trouble back to whence it came. You’ll need to keep your wits keen and your trigger finger ready to decide who warrants swift cowboy justice with a mere tap of the screen or click of the mouse. Timeless characters, elite acting, crafted dialogue, and action-packed action await you.
One would think that a production of such quality would command a steep price, but we’ve got news for you. Through the magic of digital technology, we’re able to bring this fine production to you for a mere 149 cents (that’s $1.49 American). Kaufman, an expert in all things low-cost says, “Microsoft never returns my calls about letting me direct a Halo movie in New Jersey. But Twisted Pixel brought The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles to Windows 8 as a Trojan horse to get my face in front of Steve Ballmer. Steve, call me!”
Twisted Pixel Games proudly presents the future of interactive entertainment: The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles. Starring Wiley Wiggins (Dazed and Confused, Waking Life) as Future Buddy and Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo and Juliet) as Doc Lloyd, this new experience defies simple 20th century categorizations of “game” or “film.” Video games don’t have real horses or real big fires. Films don’t allow viewers to choose who lives or dies. The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles has all those things, and a lot more.
The carefully crafted story of intrigue takes players on an adventure to find the nefarious Wavy Tube Man Jr., who has stolen a time machine to go to the past and prevent his father’s death. Take control of destiny using mouse or touch-based targeting, shooting, and more against quick-drawing cowboys and heavily armed future warriors, chasing the villain through time as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Coming soon to the Windows Store for Windows 8 PCs and RT tablets at the stunningly low price of $1.49, The Wavy Tube Man Chronicles is less than 1/30th the price of old media like Halo 4 or the Twilight saga. Come to the future of interactive entertainment.
