Somewhere on the web there is a webcomic called "Guinea Something Good."  A short while ago, Jeff Mumm (the comic's creator) decided to expand "Guinea Something Good" into a retro-styled video game for PC, should the game's Kickstarter campaign prove successful.

"This game has been a dream of mine since I was a kid, and I'm hoping it will be just the thing I need to get the attention of the public at large," states Mumm on his game's Kickstarter page.

With a fundraising goal of $10,000.00, Mumm is promising Super Bunny Insurrection to become a one-episode platfomer consisting of eight levels.  Taking inspiration from Super Nintendo and SEGA Genesis games of the 1990's, the game will feature retro-styled 16-bit graphics, but takes a page from modern games by having fully-voiced cutscenes.  Also, should the game prove successful enough, Mumm hopes to later release the game onto other platforms such as iOS and Xbox LIVE Arcade.

In Super Bunny Insurrection, players take the role of a guinea pig who is in search of his friend.  Along the way, you bounce off of the heads of rabbits.  Fed up of this mis-treatment, the lagomorphs band together to get their revenge.   They form themselves an army and build their own arsenal of extremely sophisticated futuristic technology with the goal of bringing your guinea pig butt down.

Super Bunny Insurrection will be the second video game developed by Mumm.  Previously, he developed and released PC game Bounce or Die.

Jeff Mumm is the son of News10 reporter Jonathan Mumm.
