We didn’t count, but we must have saved the world thousands of times. Like many of us, we spent most of our childhood being superheroes dressed in cardboard armor with a towel around our neck, having the most amazing and epic adventures.
Thankfully, now that we’re adults *cough*, video games still allow us to immerse ourselves in imaginary worlds, without looking like fools throwing pinecone grenades at each other. But this image of us as kids, running around the woods with a big stick – that by happy coincidence has a small branch to the side making it the perfect bazooka – is thoroughly stuck in our minds.
This is where the idea for Kick & Fennick originated, remembering the fun we had saving the world and our friends with our massive stick weapons. There are no complications as a kid, but if a real ten year old boy would fire one of our imaginary super guns, he would surely launch himself through the air just from the weapon’s recoil… which would be pretty damn cool!
