Double Take Announces Remaining Seven Titles in the Ultimate Night of the Living Dead

Published

on

Earlier this year we learned the titles of three of the books that Double Take is including in its “Ultimate Night of the Living Dead” collection of ten comics, and now we have more details plus what the other seven will be.

From the Press Release:
On September 16, 2015, Double Take (2T) will release all 10 first issues of its first 10 series of the Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. 2T has assembled 10 teams of talented storytellers; each is creating an original series of stories. Each series is interesting, informative, and funny in its own way. Together they weave into a common universe.

“Originally, we were thinking of trickling out a couple of series every month or so, building up our roster over time,” said 2T GM Bill Jemas. “Now we’re planning to launch our new universe in one big bang.”

In late March 2015, 2T announced the first three books of the series (Rise, Home, and Z-Men) for their September launch. Today the Company is announcing the final seven books of the universe including Honor, Lab, Spring, Remote, Medic, Dedication, and Soul.

In addition, today 2T also is launching a Kickstarter campaign in support of Ultimate Night of the Living Dead. Fans and retailers alike can save money while getting access to great comics and other goodies.

“Kickstarter is a great way to reach out to readers, to learn what they like and don’t like,” said Robert Meyers, 2T’s Managing Editor.

Finally, 2T is announcing an innovative offer – in addition to offering single copies, 2T will collect all 10 first issues in one Super Pack at a fantastic discount. Right now you can preview the first scenes of the first stories at doubletakeuniverse.com and pre-order a Super Pack on Kickstarter.com.

About the Ultimate Night of the Living Dead:
As you may know, the 1968 film is in the public domain. All of us here at Double Take admire and respect the creators, cast, and crew, but no one affiliated with the Night of the Living Dead film is in any way involved in the creation of 2T’s stories. 2T’s stories start in the world established by Night of the Living Dead. Then we let our imaginations and our zombies run wild. Mostly our creators are telling new stories starring new characters. But if you love the classic film, you won’t be disappointed; you can follow your favorite characters from their first appearances through their dying breaths to their first baby zombie steps.

Michael C. Hall Buried in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary

Published

on

Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

Published

on

Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.

New God of War Story Trailer Calls to You

Published

on

This morning, Sony unleashed a new trailer for God of War 4, the upcoming continuation of the story of Kratos. Full of rich, vibrant, and epic imagery, the trailer expands on the dynamics we’ll be seeing at play in this game, mainly the struggle of Kratos being a father and choosing how, and when, to reveal his Godliness to his son, Atreus. All of this takes place as they embark on a journey to fulfill the last wishes of Kratos’ late wife, who wished for her ashes to be spread in a distant location.

Directed by Cory Barlog, God of War 4 will be the first entry in the franchise to not feature Terrence C. Carson as the voice of Kratos. Rather, that responsibility has now fallen upon Christopher Judge (Dead Space: Aftermath, Reaper), who also provided the motion capture for the character.

A Playstation 4 exclusive, God of War 4 will be coming to the console on April 20 this year.

Synopsis:
Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.
