Matrix Games is excited to announce that they have licensed the rights to developed a game based on Mark H. Walker's first military sci-fi novel, A Craving for Blood.

“I’m elated to have a chance to bring this book to life on the computer screen,” stated David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games. “Mark has knack for bending genres, be they literary or gaming, and the gritty combat and conflicted heroine in A Craving for Blood is Mark at his best”.

“Matrix Games is the only publisher I feel could make this work at the high standards I want. Gamers are going to be very excited about this one.” said Mark Walker.

A Craving for Blood moved into the ten most popular novels on Booklocker this week. The novel features a witches brew of Abrams tanks, three-story tall robotic fighting machines, and macabre assassins. Nevertheless, it’s a brew that will keep reader's noses buried in the binding as they bore through this darkly, yet grittily detailed, military science fiction thriller.

“If you like the idea of a retro tank fleet engaging a future world's high tech weaponry, you'll love Mark Walker's A Craving for Blood.” John Antal, author of Proud Legions, military advisor for Brothers in Arms.

“Once you start reading Walker’s blood-and-thunder saga, you’ll be hooked.” William R. Trotter, author of Warrenr's Beastie.

“Walker has combined a Tom Clancy-like grasp of near future war with an Underworld-esque heroine to produce an novel that military adventurists and macabre science fiction aficionados alike will treasure." Jim Zabek, Executive Editor, The Wargamer.
