LISTEN UP, OLD-SCHOOL GAMERS

YOU LIKE BANJO-KAZZOIE?

YOU LIKE CONKER’S BAD FUR DAY? 

YOU LIKE THAT SHIT? WELL, CHECK THIS OUT: 

Fiona Frightening and the Wicked Wardrobe

Fiona Frightening is about Fiona, who gets trapped in her favorite book by the evil Boogieman who intends on making himself the winner in the end. This game aims to capture the same feel as classic Rareware platformer games like Banjo-Kazooie and Conker. Not only that, HUGE names are involved such as 

Mike Pollock 

 

Eile Monty 

Phantom Savage (who also did this drawing for his youtube channel) 

Several people from Team Four Star

AND GODDAMN LINKARA.

And music will be done by Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope

Here’s a bunch of character designs from the designer’s deviantArt. 

The game is currently just a concept, so keep an eye out for the Kickstarter that will be out when everything is ready.

And the sauce for all the Fiona Frightening art: http://mtc-studios.deviantart.com/gallery/44926902

http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=kirbopher15

Did you know about the voice actors of your favorite Sonic the Hedgehog characters? Jaleel White was in fact NOT the first actor to portray the Blue Blur…but voiced him for quite a while, indeed! Tails has gone through at least 6 different child actors, but the whole cast of video game icons has changed at least 3 times over the course of the games in the last decade! Learn about the history of the voices behind Sonic and his friends!

I will be recording a chat with Mike Pollock (the voice of Dr. Eggman) tomorrow

If you have questions for Mike Pollock, send them as an ask with the format: “Mike Pollock: [question]” or send me an email at prozdkp@gmail.com with the subject line “Mike Pollock Question.”

Mike Pollock has a FAQ on his website, so if possible, try to avoid questions that have already been answered.  Also, he is not allowed to discuss anything about projects that haven’t been released yet.

If I end up getting a TON of questions, I will sift through and pick the ones I think are most interesting/relevant.  Also, questions asked by people who follow this Tumblr take priority, because hey, this is a gift for you guys.  But if we have time for everyone’s questions, we will try to cover them all.
