Bad Planet Update #2
THANKS TO OUR SUPPORTERS!
- Guest update by Tim Bradstreet of Raw Studios -
It's been a tough go so far and there's no getting around that. It's been a lot of learning along the way. No matter how hard you work or how completely you think have something covered there's always going to be something you missed or could have done better. We're realistic about that. Bad Planet is not Batman, nor is it The Avengers, and we're not Marvel or DC with decades of fan support holding us up by the boot-straps. We're an independent boutique publisher with a great IP partnered with an extremely talented group of independent game designers.
We may not have the clout of the "big two", but what we do have is a great idea in Bad Planet and a dynamic world with virtually limitless gameplay opportunity.
Bad Planet is SCI-FI, it's ADVENTURE, it's HORROR . . . And we want you in the middle of this immersive environment, taking the reigns of our cast of characters. You'll fight, you'll sneak, you'll plot, you'll plan, you'll THINK. In the thick of epic horde battles playing our main protagonist, The Convict, you'll be swinging a giant power axe, smiting left and right, up and down, tearing through endless gobs of twelve-legged Alien Deathspiders that want to EAT you with one or all of their 4 gaping maws full of razor-sharp teeth - You have to protect a small defenseless boy named Anan. When fighting won't answer then you switch over to control Anan, who holds the intellectual keys to the objective, and he'll have to use his wits, his stealth, and his homemade wind-up computer to unlock the mysteries that brute force alone cannot overcome.
That's really just scratching the surface. We have much more planned. Bad Planet first and foremost will be STORY DRIVEN. It's streamlined game mechanics and dynamic gameplay with a purpose.
WE hope you continue to support and to spread the word. We need your help. We're all in this together so please sing from the rooftops, share our Facebook posts with your friends, Tweet, and ask your pals to reTweet. All we have is grassroots marketing to assist our funding. To achieve a viral assault we need everyone to pitch in and tell folks about the Sci-Fi gaming adventure know as BAD PLANET.
SO, with that out of the way we can unveil our big surprise for this update . . . . Drumroll . . . . . .
We are overjoyed to announce that RAW compatriot extraordinaire, and fan-favorite actor, the great and powerful Mr. RON PERLMAN will be joining our team to voice THE CONVICT!
Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past two decades you're aware of Ron's vast list of credits including Hellboy, badass Clay Morrow on Sons of Anarchy, The City Of Lost Children, Blade II (which I was fortunate to work on), The Name Of The Rose, Quest For Fire, and our own Dark Country (to name only a few of our favorites). Ron and Tom have even worked together previously on the same video game project, lending their voice talents to GUN (2005). Did I let the cat out of the bag? Yes, our own Thomas Jane (The Punisher, Stander, *61, Hung) will also be doing voice-work on BAD PLANET!
So that's the update this time around. I can't tell you how ecstatic we are to have the extraordinary talent of Ron Perlman joining the fray. With him anchoring this video game as the voice of our main character we know we have the absolute best man for the job. Adding Ron to a team already bursting with talent is really stacking the deck in our favor. We got the guns but we need the numbers. Now it's up to you!
BIG thanks for all the support so far, but folks, we need you now more than ever. Please help us spread the word.
Stick with us, it only gets better.
