I was lucky enough to talk to the cast and creators of Monlith’s upcoming action adventure RPG Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Myself and other members of media peppered Michael de Plater (Director of Design), Christian Cantamessa (Lead Writer), and Troy Baker (voice of Talion), with questions about the upcoming title which is set to launch on September 28th. Baker, who gamers might recognize from starring roles in The Last of Us and Bioshock: Infinite, had some interesting things to say about the voicing the game’s protagonist Talion and just how important Tolkien’s work is to nerds everywhere.
The Indie MEGABOOTH is coming to PAX: East and it’s more MEGA than ever before. This year the Indie MEGABOOTH will house over 42 different booths, 49 different companies, and 60+ of the most innovative indie games from all over the world (even the wilds of Canada!). Earlier this year we stated that 2013 would be the “year of the indie game“, and it seems as though our expert predictions are rapidly coming true.
If you have any interest in independent development, OR need some creative inspiration, the Indie MEGABOOTH should be the perfect place to meet and mingle with some of the diabolical minds behind this year’s selections. All 42+ booths will have playable versions of their games, and will have representatives from their respective studios on hand to answer your questions. We cannot wait to get our freshly sanitized hands all over this year’s games.
