In Comic Jumper, the developers are actually characters in the game, as Twisted Pixel helps Captain Smiley, a superhero with a crappy comic book, try to redeem himself by guest-starring in other titles. The developers fund him, but can also get hands-on by punching his enemies to death when he calls for help. It’s bizarre, but damn funny."
