Newport Beach, CA, July 16, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Sleepy Giant Entertainment is partnering with Free
Lunch Design (creators of the Icy Tower franchise) on Comic ConQuest, a free-to-play tactical RPG
adventure set in a giant comic and sci-fi convention in which costumed fans have been transformed into
the characters they portray. The homemade costumes and plastic weapons become real, and the show
floor becomes a battleground as the attendees-turned-heroes use their newfound powers to fight their way
to faction supremacy.
Comic ConQuest will feature the talents of Emmy award-winning producer and renowned comic book
artist Jeff Matsuda. Matsuda's career spans 18 years in TV, film, comics and videogames. He is best
known for producing The Batman and Jackie Chan Adventures, and for his work on fan favorite comic
book titles such as X-Men, Batman, Wolverine, The Avengers, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
“I've always loved going to Comic Con and seeing Klingons walking around talking to Harry Potter and
Batman. And I'd think, how awesome would it be if they had actual powers and fought to see who could
rule the con? So when Sleepy Giant came to me with the idea for this game, I dove in headfirst,” said Jeff
Matsuda, Executive Producer. “We've got a super nerdy dream team over here with backgrounds in art,
comics and gaming, and we're passionate about making Comic ConQuest a fun, die-hard nerd
This is an epic adventure in a world where the suit really does make the hero. Players battle their way
through the con, fighting for survival, hunting for swag, forming guilds, and striving for supremacy in the
war-torn wasteland of the once (mostly) peaceful show floor.
Comic ConQuest is slated to launch across web, mobile, and tablet platforms in Q4 2013. Players who
register by August 31, 2013 will receive free exclusive early access (to the web version) along with a set
of virtual steak knives (in-game). Sign up and learn more at comicconquest.net.
