Sideshow is known for their collectible statues, apparel, and art prints, but now they’re attempting to launch their first video game: Court of the Dead: Underworld Rising on Kickstarter.
Over the ages, Death has secretly filled the Underworld with souls in an effort to build an army of liberated “mourners.” As his latest recruit, it is time to master your newfound powers and help the Underworld prepare to confront Heaven and Hell. Join Death and his Court of the Dead in the fight for your afterlife.
Underworld Rising is a role-playing video game set in the dark fantasy world of the Court of the Dead, created by Tom Gilliland of Sideshow. In this richly-illustrated 2D environment, you will join a faction and travel the Underworld, building an army of collectible followers. Journey on epic quests and challenge other players to combat in order to grow your legend and play your part in the Underworld’s bid to Rise, Conquer, Rule!
Sounds fun to me. Who wouldn’t want to have a legion of followers and fight both Heaven and Hell to save everyone’s soul? I mean really. Learn more about the project in the video below.
