Basketball legend, Shaquille O’Neal was once in a videogame sporting his name, Shaq Fu. Even back then, the game was terrible, but Shaq is looking to get the sequel funded via Indigogo – http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/shaq-fu-a-legend-reborn.
Shaq himself acknowledges that the original was less than impressive in his pitch but promises that they won’t “Fu it up” this time. The development is being taken on by Big Deez Productions, which appears to be a new development team made up of devs from “HALO, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, Alan Wake, Spec Ops: The Line, Battlefield, Killzone, Max Payne, Duke Nukem, and many other huge franchises.”
Their stretch goals are pretty… stretched.
