I remember once reading in a book somewhere that heroes came in all shapes and sizes. For some reason, I don't think that the author would have put Jerry McPartlin in that category. Looking better suited for the titular role in Grease, Jerry McPartlin will apparently be the only thing standing between humanity and unspeakable evil from dimensions beyond mortal ken.

Needless to say, this also means that the upcoming point-and-click adventure is probably going to be a heck of a romp through old-school diners, decadent temples and everything in between. In development by Ed Venture Studios, Jerry McPartlin - Episode 1 recently made an appearance on 8-bit funding with a request for $5000. There is no explanation as to why they need the donation but the developers have promised to complete their maiden project regardless of whether the goal is met or not.

Unsurprisingly, given that production only began last month or so, there's little more than the introductory trailer to behold. I'll admit that most of my excitement stems from a lingering, nostalgic fondness for Full Throttle (Anyone else remember that?) but that's irrelevant!

Either way, those interested in investigating the project further might want to drop by their 8-bit funding page and slap a virtual book-mark there.
