sacrifice 2 The Sacrifice   Part 2

Part 2 of the 4 part Left 4 Dead comic is now up on the official L4D Blog and things aren’t getting any better for our survivors.

Starting to flesh out the back stories of the characters and world the new DLC had better live up to the promise of finally doing more than just shooting zombies. Not that we don’t enjoy it.

As you may or may not know, Tor have just finished doing a zombie week and one of the best things that came out of it (and there was lots of good stuff) was the comic, Dear Melissa.

This short 9 page comic re-humanises zombies (but if you see them, still shoot them) and is well worth a look.

Check it out here and make sure and check out what else Tor put up last week.

DeadTown Motion Comic Teaser in 3D

21 Jul

Grab your 3D glasses and watch this!

WHEN YOU LIVE IN HELL, DEATH IS PART OF THE SCENERY…

Sam Spade in the world of Dawn of the Dead

Set in a post-apocalyptic near future, DeadTown follows the exploits of Chan who lost his family in the zombie plague, and now works as a private detective in a world over-run by the undead.

Those with the means live “Upstairs”, in skyscrapers specially designed to separate them from the infested street level; everyone else is “Downstairs”. The survivors struggle to carve out a life with the constant threat of zombies hanging over them.

Depicted in a rich black and white style, DeadTown combines a classic film noir sensibility with the zombie horror genre, in an edgy re-imagining of the hard boiled detective thriller.

This is one of a number of 2D and 3D motion comics from M2 and is a fantastic new(ish) medium that we’ve never seen done in 3D before.

We’re excited and will be keeping you up to date as soon as we find out more.

Update: After a quick look around it seems as if the guys at M2 are looking for funding to get this project completed over on Kickstarter. If you like the look of it head on over and donate although with only 3 days to go and over $19,000 to be raised, it doesn’t look as though this one will go ahead.
