Funk Unplugged – Shot in Progress

Justin and Thomas get together to take a shot in progress of Funk Unplugged. The build we played through was sent by the developer and was created in February 2017. This game was successfully kickstarted and placed on Steam Greenlight and is slated to release late this year. Funk Unplugged is a 3D action platformer created by Vamped Games.
