In our estimation, Joe Danger may be the single best downloadable game of the generation.

And that's why we're totally psyched to hear about the new project at Hello Games; we wanted a sequel, and that's basically what we're getting:

As revealed at TheSixthAxis , it's Joe Danger: The Movie . That's only a working title but the studio's Sean Murray expounds a bit. This follow-up effort is something "entirely new" and yet, it should be similar to the gameplay experience we loved before. Essentially, he said to compare the entire first game to "one short scene" of the new "film." Said Murray:

"If you liked Joe Danger, then I think it’s going to rock your world. Even if you didn’t like it though, this is different enough that we might just win you over. That’s the idea, but like I say who knows, no one but us has seen it yet."

So we're not sure of the differences yet, but we do know the inspiration behind the new, larger concept. Apparently, after viewing old '80s classics ("Robocop" and "Short Circuit" among them), they got a bunch of ideas, so the new game starts with our buddy Joe Danger being discovered by a Hollywood film director. Added Murray:

"It’s really just an excuse for us to take every film you’ve ever loved as a kid, cut them together into some crazy montage, and basically that’s the script for our game."

Now, they're not talking platforms yet and something about the phrasing in Murray's responses make us think this could be a full Blu-Ray release. But with a team of only four, we're not sure if that's realistic…who knows? All we do know is that we absolutely cannot wait to learn more about the new Joe Danger .

It'll be at GamesCom next week so expect a full unveiling then.

dont scare me like that!
i thought we were getting a movie for a second there!
so happy to be getting a sequel.
though no where near the generations best DL title, that would be a toss up between super meat boy or shadow complex.
if i had to choose id probably go super meat boy, just simply because its so well designed.
