Trigger Happy is an action-adventure video game developed by CMCI and Expansion and released worldwide February 20, 2017. Trigger Happy combines platformer elements with those of third-person shooters, similar to Insomniac Games' Ratchet & Clank series of video games. Similar to said series, the main character (and almost all other characters) are antromorphic animals. The game takes on an overall humorous, sarcastic tone, with a lot of (inside) jokes, running gags, slapstick humor, and references to internet memes/phenomena such as All your base are belong to us, Dopefish, Nyan Cat and Nice boat.
Oh, and it's not Minecraft or Minecraft-related at all.
A teenage, male fox. That's it. I'm still thinking up the rest.
The main antagonist.
There'll be a lot of ridicolous, idiotic weapons, like a shotgun (with a chicken and a nest on the gun barrel) that shoots eggs, a candy gun, a soda turret, a gun with a boxing glove, a Super Sheep Launcher, and more.
The game references a ton of references to internet memes and phenomena. When Vix enters Nycton's base, the latter says "...and now that'we clearly got some interlopers here, we should really reboot our security systems. And you know it, kids: All your base are belong to us.", referencing the popular phrase from Zero Wing. "He set up us the bomb" is also referenced. When Vix finds an old man in the office building, upon asking him where the enemy base is, he'll say "It's dangerous to go alone !". When asking him about his past, he'll say "I used to be an adventurer like you. But then i took an arrow in the knee". When the Deferlilyzer Android is defeated, he'll exclamate "Error Error <static> I Am Error !". Dopefish appears on a poster in the same office building the old man is found.
Perhaps the biggest scource of memes is when hacking Nycton's central computer; whenever the players fails, a random meme thing will happen:
- The official music video of Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up will play; the player has been "rickrolled".
- An image of a duck with wheels appears; a reference to duckrolling, the joke that rickrolling was based on. Rather than leading to the music video Never Gonna Give You Up, it leads to an edited picture of a duck on wheels.
- A message appears saying the player has been Gannon Banned.
- Shoop da Whoop appears.
- The computer says "IT'S OVER 9000 !", then implodes.
- The computer says "Do a barrel roll !", then flips upside-down.
- Nyan Cat appears, along with the very annoying song.
