Press Release on signing Matt Corboy, veteran actor
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SEATTLE, Washington (March 8th, 2012)
Veteran actor Matt Corboy (The Shield, L.A. Noir, The Descendants) signs up for innovative new video game project
Matt Corboy, whose credits include The Shield, the video game L.A. Noir, and the recent Academy Award-winning The Descendants, (and most recently fought Ophrah on Jimmy Kimmel Live!) recently announced his involvement in an innovative new video game project.
Following the wave of support for new Kickstarter projects, Serellan LLC, a small video game developer in Seattle, Washington led by experienced game designer Christian Allen, who’s background include Tom Clancy games and Halo: Reach.
Corboy announced that he was selected to play the role of “The Commander” in a new military shooter game. What makes this game different is that they are seeking crowdsourced funding on the newly-popular website Kickstarter. Double Fine entertainment recently raised over two million dollars for funding of a new adventure game, possibly signaling a new wave of independent video game projects) where fans of games can fund games themselves, instead of relying on large video game publishers.
Corboy stated, “I am very proud to announce that I will be the voice of the Commander in this game designed by my friend Christian Allen. Please get involved and support independent game development!”
