Exclusive: Feel the Loneliness and Fear in Desolation Planet

Published

on

In 2006, writer/director Kevin Gates rocked the horror community with his feature film The Zombie Diaries. Since then, he’s released a sequel to that title as well as a couple of short films. Now Gates is getting ready to jump back into the feature film world with Desolation Planet, a post-apocalyptic take on survival amidst an irradiated world.

Gates tells Dread Central, “The teaser is cut from some test scenes we’ve shot, which feature towards the end of the first act. This was a great opportunity to get a feel for the world of the film, which is naturally very, very bleak. You could say it exists in the same sort of post apocalyptic world as The Zombie Diaries, but the threat to our characters is something quite different and remains under wraps at present.

To give you a feel of Desolation Planet, we’ve got our hands on an exclusive teaser, which you can see below.

Synopsis:
After a catastrophic global event has ravaged the world, two survivors emerge from a fallout shelter deep beneath the earth. Radioactivity permeates the shattered landscape after the bombs were dropped and with nothing but their biohazard suits to prevent an agonizing death and no food or water, it becomes a nightmare race against time to locate other survivors. But as their journey progresses it becomes apparent that another threat has emerged into this new world, for something malevolent stalks the land when the sun goes down.

Troy Baker and Emily O’Brien Confirmed For Death Stranding

Published

on

While there’s still no release date for Hideo Kojima’s mysterious Death Stranding, there have been regular(-ish) updates for the sci-fi/horror game. These little tidbits act not only as seeds of information but also as additions to the overall mystery surrounding the game, which is basically what gets Kojima’s all hot and bothered.

Last night, actress Emily O’Brien posted a photo on her Instagram where she revealed that she has been working on Death Stranding alongside Norman Reedus and another actor who is renowned in the gaming community: Troy Baker. No description of either of their characters’ roles were revealed in the description, which leads to the “mystery” part of the story. With Reedus already being shown as the main character, Mads Mikkelsen as the villain, and Guillermo del Toro having a role of unknown size, I’m curious where Baker and O’Brien fit into the story. With side characters having just as much importance as mains in many games these days, you never know what kind of impact these actors will have on the greater story.

Baker is known for playing Joel in The Last of Us as well as Samuel Drake in Uncharted 4, Booker DeWitt in Bioshock: Infinite, and Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Telltale Series, as well as a great deal more. O’Brien has offered her voice in titles such as League of Legends, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, and Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, as well as acted in film and TV.

Below is a fascinating dive into Death Stranding from my pal RagnarRox.

Toy Fair 2018: Storm Collectibles Proudly Display their Mortal Kombat Figures

Published

on

One of the goriest franchises in the history of gaming will soon be playable in a different way, because Storm Collectibles have revealed a ton of new Mortal Kombat action figures at Toy Fair.

Fans of the ultraviolent fighting franchise might want to start fighting back their nerd boners, because Storm’s new figure line includes some of the most popular characters from the series, including Ermac, Shao Kahn, Rain, Smoke, Reptile, and Goro, although I was personally a little let down to see that the smooth movie star Johnny Cage appears to be absent.

Toy Ark posted a series of photos of the highly-detailed figures from the event, and we can probably expect them to arrive in stores soon. Since the release of the first game all the way back in 1992, the Mortal Kombat franchise has sold a combined total of 35 million copies in addition to generation over $5 billion in revenue, so these toys will keep the ravenous fanbase happy until the inevitable announcement of Mortal Kombat XI.
