Wayside Creations, the creative team behind the highly acclaimed web series Fallout: Nuka Break, embarks on a high-fantasy journey with their new series, Legend of Grimrock.
Inspired by the success story of Finnish independent game developers Almost Human, and captivated by the Legend of Grimrock’s storyline and design, Wayside Creations reached out to the creators in hopes of developing a live-action series within the Grimrock world. Equally excited over the potential of a Grimrock series, Almost Human has partnered with Wayside
Creations to develop a new, licensed series and bring the Legend of Grimrock to life in a whole new way.
The Legend of Grimrock series will bring Wayside Creations veterans and new talent together. Co-founder Vincent Talenti (Fallout: Nuka Break seasons 1 & 2 and Fallout: Red Star) is set to direct the series. Obsidian Entertainment’s Chris Avellone (Fallout: New Vegas, Knights of the Old Republic 2) is attached to the series as a writer. The cast of Nuka Break, including
Wayside Creations’ series regular Vic Mignogna (Full Metal Alchemist, Star Trek Continues), will return for roles and/or assist in the development of Grimrock.
In an effort to make this series a reality, a Kickstarter campaign for Legend of Grimrock launched this week. As part of the campaign, backers will get access to exclusive products — including the first Steam keys to the Legend of Grimrock sequel coming out in 2014. Other rewards will include a Blu-ray/DVD combo set with bonus features, signed props from the production, and opportunities for creative input on the project. Although high fantasy is a genre not usually tackled by indie filmmakers, Wayside Creations looks forward to creating a quality high fantasy piece supported by the strength of the independent gaming community.
With a unique partnership between Almost Human and Wayside Creations, Legend of Grimrock is an ambitious project designed to give fans of the game the live action series they deserve, while also offering fans of Wayside Creations and Fallout: Nuka Break a new world to explore.
