Death Inc. comic! Gameplay footage incoming!

Hello dear friends!

We had a great first day - thank you so much for joining us on the ground floor of this exciting ride. The only way is up, as the song and the metaphor both go.

This afternoon we'll have a very exciting update for you - brand new gameplay footage with a walkthrough by design lead Mike Green and creative director Daniel Leaver. We're planning a whole series of gameplay updates, and this first one will show off more of the painting mechanic, how you could infect some irritatingly chirpy peasants, and how you might tackle a posse of archers. Plus I believe they're cueing up something so secret and exciting that I'm not even allowed to know what it is. 

Can you identify with Grim here? Perhaps! So, to tide you over until this afternoon and pass your Tuesday morning in a haze of beautiful inkmanship,  why not have a read of part 1 of the rather lovely Death Inc. comic?

WARNING: This comic includes an image of a Reaper riding a zebra.

Cheers!

      I thought the first issue of the comic was great! Loved that Death enjoys a bit of color around him lol! I also would like to second @Joseph's comment. If I had more money to throw around you'd get it!

      If I could afford it, I'd give you the whole 300k myself! In a world of bland, Unreal engine based face shooters (which I enjoy as much as anyone else), this looks to be a breath of fresh air. The art is absolutely beautiful. Can't wait for this to arrive. Cheers!

      Hey Journeyman, thanks for letting us know - weird as we've never seen that. Can you send use a private message with more details please (e.g. screenshot)?

      Ehm.. your apache server returns a 404 error in embedding /deathinc/comic/domainmonster_blank.htm at the end of the page.
