Fox on the Fringe With Abrams

Published

on

JJ Abrams' new show Fringe goes to FoxThough the details are vague right now, Daily Variety got word this morning that Fox has picked up a new show from “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams called “Fringe”, which he co-created with his Star Trek prequel brain trust Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci (The Transformers).

”Fringe” is being called a lot of things, but at its core it sounds like a semi-paranoid medical thriller show with elements of Altered States and Scanners, sans head explosions (we think). The show will focus on the brilliant but probably crazy character of William Bishop, a research scientist with an estranged son and the female FBI agent who brings them together. There will be elements of both the paranormal and straight-up medical horrors throughout.

“It’s definitely meant to scare the hell out of you, but it’s also meant to make you laugh… It pushes all the buttons of things we loved from our childhood.” Abrams told the trade. Expect to hear about more projects for Abrams since he signed his big contract with Warner Bros. recently, and keep it here for more on “Fringe” as it comes to light!

Check Out Episode 1 of the New VR/360 App Narrative Series Find Me

Published

on

Let me get this out of the way right off the top. I’m not really into the whole VR/360 experience. I’ve tried it out and it’s cool and all, but I’m not sold just yet.

That said, if you are into such games/experiences, you might want to check out “Find Me”.

The mobile app is a 360/VR narrative series from BlackBoxTV, James McFadden, Eric Jacks & Collab, as well as #YouTubeSpaceLA and The Los Angeles Times.

Each episode features visual codes and puzzles for you to solve, unlocking additional content and information available only in the app. That is until IRL gameplay begins in Los Angeles on December 25th and the app becomes your key to unlock locations in the real world.

“Find Me” will have one winner with a one-of-a-kind prize for the person who “finds” and frees the main protagonist Julia Zamora (played by Madison Lawlor) via the app.

Again, I’m not into these VR/360 apps but if you are – or want to try one out – I highly suggest taking on “Find Me”.

You can watch “Find Me – Episode 1” below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!

Get the “Find Me” App for iOS HERE and Android HERE.

New Trailer Arrives for Overkill’s The Walking Dead Video Game

Published

on

Over two years after it was announced, we’ve finally been given our first good look at Overkill’s Walking Dead video game in the form of a series of new videos posted on the company’s YouTube channel.

The first video introduces Aiden, one of the playable survivors, and confirms that the game will be set in Washington D.C. No gameplay is shown, but it still serves as a pretty decent intro for yet another story in the Walking Dead universe.

Following on from the trailer above, Overkill also released a video introducing the team working on the game, in addition to an extended 28 minute interview with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be a four player co-op action FPS in which you’ll have to fight crazed fellow survivors in addition to zombies. There will be four playable survivors in total, each with their own unique upgradable abilities.

Starbreeze Studios will publish the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime next year. Keep an eye on Overkill’s YouTube channel for more updates in the meantime.
