Energy Hook trailer teases swinging, a jetpack and a Kickstarter campaign

A trailer released yesterday for Energy Hook, a Kickstarter-bound game from a developer of Spider-Man 2, shows off the game's swing mechanic, which is reminiscent of a certain blue-and-red superhero.

Energy Hook takes place in a future when "daredevil athletes" swing their way around cities, according to a post on developer Happion Laboratories' website. The Kickstarter campaign for the PC and Mac game will begin Dec. 8. Check out the trailer above for a mixture of swinging, parkour and light jetpacking.
